I hear so many people say that they’re going backwards and that they’re stuck in a pattern of repeating the same thing over and over again. But the truth is, you can’t go backwards. You just can’t. We are always moving forward, always changing and evolving and growing. You might be experiencing similar feelings to what you felt in the past, but you’re not going backwards.
Think about who you were 6 months ago, 1 year ago, 3 years ago. What were you feeling back then? How was your thought life? What did you spend your time doing? Where was your focus? See, you’re not that person anymore. You’ve learned new things since then, you’ve experienced something different. You’re a new version of you.
In this episode, I talk about what to do if you have the feeling like you’re going backwards and encourage you to catch that thinking and give yourself some credit for all the growth you’ve gone through. I talk about not beating yourself up and going into guilt, but taking everything as an opportunity for growth. Yes, growth hurts sometimes. It’s painful and it takes time. But it’s exciting! You’re changing and that’s a beautiful thing.
