Everything feeling crazy does not mean that you’re crazy. when you pair the outside world and it’s chaos alongside the challenges of our personal lives….your nervous system is going to feel it. Yet so many tend to directly criticize themselves: I’m lazy, I’m not ambitious enough, I’m too sensitive, if my parents could do it, why can’t I?
Why? Well the climate (literally and metaphorically) is vastly different from a generation ago. Our exposure to information is exponentially more, and studies have shown how much more isolated we live our lives. Before resorting to self-blame, take into account that a lot of your burdens are not a result of your weaknesses but the cracks in the systems we inhabit.
Once we better understand this change, then we can adjust our own behaviors in order to find new equilibrium in this brave new world.
