If we constantly try to fix our feelings it means “there’s something wrong”. But what if nothing has gone wrong. What if it’s ok to just feel that negative feeling?
When we feel good, motivated, inspired, energised, confident, and brave… we take actions that move us forward towards what we want.
But sometimes when we feel negative feelings like fear, disappointment, frustration, discomfort, defeat, rejection, or deprivation… we stop taking action or we take actions that sabotage what we really want.
We often think that procrastination, perfectionism and paralysis are driven by laziness or lack of motivation or A-type behaviour.
But the truth is that we procrastinate, perfect and stop taking action on our goals and habits because we want to avoid negative emotions.
