- Someday Lesson: To break out of a pity party tell yourself how good things are even when it feels like a lie.
As much as I come across as a confident person, there are times that I feel lower than the lowliest worm. It takes energy to stay positive.
If you’ve been reading this blog for any length of time, you know how much I’m in favour of wallowing. A good pity party does a lot to shake us out of our negative spiral of thoughts.
Sometimes, however, a pity party can go on for too long and the downward spiral keeps taking us down – too far – and we lose our self-confidence and then we lose the momentum on whatever progress we’ve made moving forward towards our dreams.
That’s when we need to lie to ourselves.
If we start repeating how great life is and how wonderful we are, we can break free of the spiral, and rebuild self-confidence and momentum.
When we’re in the downward spiral, the words “I’m so lucky, lucky / I’m so lovely lovely” feel like a total lie – when I feel like crap, I feel neither lucky nor lovely.
