Expectations are a measuring stick for failure.
Ever get that desire to hide out at home and binge television, or sit in that dark depressive cloud hanging over your head? I think we’ve all been there, and it’s something that can feel difficult to fight the right way.
The obvious answer is to give in and do what it says, yet that can often just perpetuate the cycle you’re experiencing.
Instead, the answer is far more counterintuitive. Why does going against it work?
Well, part of the issue is that when we give in we create a barter with ourselves. We expect that in a few days we’ll feel better. When we don’t, though… We set ourselves to fall deeper in.
It’s frustrating and demoralizing. And that’s why we have to do the exact opposite of giving in to what it wants us to. This time on the Becoming Kings podcast, we’re unpacking depression, anxiety, and taking action at the first sign of going down.
