Perhaps you are going through difficult circumstances, and it seems that your affairs are not doing well, and nothing gives rise to hope, you have lost your motivation and are now thinking about leaving it all because you feel that you are worthless; But don’t worry, we’ve all been through this situation; Furthermore, I would like to remind you that a high-growth lifestyle involves a feeling of vulnerability, and how you feel in this way does not reflect anything of your personality or ability.
1. This Feeling is Temporary
Feeling worthless is usually accompanied by an emotional storm that leaves us confused and makes us lose confidence and desire to do anything. But remember, emotions just like the weather are scattered, random, and unpredictable.
Sure, the weather could be severe and accompanied by a random thunderstorm; But the next day, the sun rises, and everything is back to normal again; And your emotions work this way, too; So, remember that your current state is temporary, and this is confirmed by brain scientist Jill Bolte Taylor when she stated that any emotion lasts for a much shorter time than we think and that the chemical process of emotion takes only 90 seconds.
2. The Most Successful People In The World Feel this Way As Well
Mentors and those you respect and lead by example feel exactly how you feel right now, it may be easy to believe that others are perfect and never feel worthless because of their accomplishments; But this is far from the truth, as every person in this world feels this way and suffers like you.
Some of the most successful individuals on the planet feel worthless at times. A recent documentary The Weight Of Gold featured stories by Olympic athletes such as Michael Phelps, Bode Miller, and others who were injured. Depressed for months after the Olympics; They are the most accomplished on the world stage, and they have hundreds of millions of fans who respect them and admire them but also suffer from a sense of worthlessness.
3. There Are A Lot of Things That Are Going Well
Being in a state of weakness may lead to thinking about all the tragedies and pains we have experienced in our lives, as we will think about the people who betrayed our confidence and the day we were fired from work after we had devoted all our time and effort to the service of that institution, and over-analyze a comment on the means Socializing, and we get hard on ourselves by not achieving our goals fast enough.
Remember: you woke up today and your heart still beats, but 50,000 people died that day, and you are probably blessed with shelter and clean water too. This simple shift in perspective can allow us to lower our expectations compared to these blessings and remember what works.
4. Contrast Creates a New Perspective
Our culture emphasizes positivity in every moment, so we must always be the best, win in all circumstances, and live happily ever after. Although these aspirations are worthwhile, life is not so simple.
Embrace the contrast in life and try something different, as difficult moments, feelings of anxiety, and the experience of conflict in our lives create a new perspective that we would not have been able to reach without them; If we embrace the contrast, we will ask better questions, seek better answers, and seek help from others. This creates a deeper connection and makes us sympathetic to other people’s struggles.
However, stay curious; When we are curious about our emotions and what we are going through, we become empathetic rather than judgmental, and we remain open to new insights rather than restricting ourselves, and it all leads to healing.
5. Contrast Creates a New Perspective
We all have a file in our minds that keeps some facts about ourselves, such as the places in which we demonstrated our pursuit, an achievement that impressed us with others, or the fortitude we showed when escaping from confrontation was easier, but this volume may not be available However, I highly recommend that you start building it.
