The work I did with my own therapist made me realise that my Banshee arrived when I felt helpless to manage the situation, overwhelmed and fundamentally was in ‘emotional pain’. It wasn't because I was a 'bad mum'.
The issue is the longer you put something off something that you’re worried about… the: - Bigger it becomes - More headspace it consumes - Time it takes up is more time than it should - Money it loses you - More sleep you loose
A lot of my clients come to me often with the description….I just feel like…. I’m struggling/I’m drowning/I’m shouting too quickly/I’ve got a constant knot in my stomach/I’m anxious/I’m not being very nice to my partner/I could be doing it better/I’m not coping/I’m finding work or family difficult/I’m having intrusive thoughts/I’m unable to sleep/I’m ruled by my to do list/I’m burned out or exhausted….. it goes on.... These are the symptoms of ‘overwhelm’ and the day to day impact of your reaction to your current situation.
This is the work I love to do as it provides you freedom from burn out and anxiety. Life feels much more aligned. You can much better perspective. You can think rationally and clearly. Life is happier, calmer and easier. And within all of that, it returns your energy as you are not so constantly exhausted.
