I wanted to take the time to write a quick post about personal characteristics.
All too often I see people underestimate what they can accomplish in their day to day lives, as well as their ability to handle stress. Working in the mental health field, I meet plenty of individuals who feel they need to be someone different in order to handle their obstacles.
In actuality, it is far more effective for long term stress management to accept who you are first, and then build upon those inherent attributes. Use what you’ve got to your benefit.
We are unique individuals. Stop running in circles comparing yourself to others and trying to be like someone else you know or what you think you should be. Instead, take that time getting to know who you are, what makes you tick and what give you that fire to want to take on the world.
