When things are difficult, we can feel threatened and unsafe, which creates fear and anxiety. Our negative thinking and our inner critic can escalate as we try to manage our vulnerability.
When we are outside of our comfort zone or being asked to change, we may feel stuck, feel resistance and then procrastinate. It is hard for us to lean into discomfort in any experience and find acceptance in what we can and can’t influence in our situation. And yet acceptance is an empowering choice with which to meet and move forwards in a world outside of our control.
