The world is falling apart all around us.
People kill each other over religion.
No one is pretty or rich enough.
Everyone is quick to find fault with everyone else.
You will never drive cleverly enough. Meh, someone will always be better than you at everything.
Try as you might, “good enough” can often feel elusive.
It stinks. It can make you want to crawl in a hole. Or feel unable to do anything.
This is why millions of people suffer from mental illnesses. And why almost all of us experience some of their symptoms from time to time.
Your mind cannot keep up with the pressures of modern life on its own. It has almost caught up with them, but fails to make the leap to overcoming them without help. There is a little too much negative pressure to keep you from having “I’m a good person.” as your default setting.
We are ALL like this, without help. Such as…
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (dieting, rubber bands around wrists, exposure to the things that scare you) is what most people turn to when they feel broken. It can work, but also make you feel like you’re being roasted over an open fire. Or being tossed off of a 500 foot cliff. Is that what you want when uncomfortable feelings are what drove you to seek assistance in the first place?
If you get nothing else out of a hypnosis session, you will at least experience the sensation of not having a care in the world (and if you don’t, you NEED to change to a new hypnotist (affiliate link).) Like a massage, this can be part of what keeps you thriving in the dangerous world.
It truly is that simple, but it can be anything but easy. Do you want help with taking the first step? Leave me a reply.
This is the second post in a three part series about how to thrive in a world that’s trying to kill you. Come back next week to learn how hypnosis can undo the damage the world persuades you to do to yourself.
