It’s a godawful feeling!
But why do we feel this way when it’s just no good way to feel at all?!?
We worst part is you end up blaming yourself for being not enough, but it’s got nothing to do with some deep lying faults, but a bunch of annoyances that build up over time.
Those times when you had too much on your plate, and you ran out of time to do the one thing you absolutely had to get done, and then someone was rude and it got to you…
It all adds up, but if we want to do something about it, we’ve got to single out the main culprits:

This need not be some epic adventure, but trying new food, or class, or a new park nearby…
Give it a go, you’ve nothing to lose and everything to gain!
Next up – frustration.
And it’s a big one because it builds up over time and it’s hard to know where you can even begin…
Here is something you could try – to cut through this dark, heavy mood…
