Let’s face it. Most of us are pretty self centered – I know that I myself am included and guilty of this. Often times we get so caught up in the hustle and bustle of everyday life that we tend to be overly self focused in the daily stress of our own little world’s – and that’s not always a good thing. We start getting burnt out on everyday life and don’t enjoy things as much as we truly should.
When you are focused on your immediate surrounding all of the time – worrying about what kid need to go to what practice or worrying that your next paycheck won’t be as much as you’d like – it can bring you down. I’ve found over the years that the fight or flight emotional state that we get caught up in is very unhealthy and causes not only things like depression, but can also make us physically ill as well.
Being focused just on yourself can downright become depressing and turn into an official pity party that you didn’t even realize existed.
So what’ the solution to all of these negative behaviors that we all fall into?
