Finally, I burnt out from a lifetime of stress and decided it was time to make some necessary changes. From my research, I created three tools. Today, I am less reactive and calmer. Rather than get stuck overthinking when I encounter setbacks, I can work through my emotions and respond in healthier ways. I’m also kinder and more compassionate to myself. As a result, I experience less pressure. It is easier to set boundaries and give myself permission to say no and work. I can celebrate wins without worrying about all the tasks I still have to complete, and I feel free to try something and fail, knowing I can learn from it. I’m not pressured to prove myself, and I’m having fun doing what I love – helping others have the freedom to live a gentler life. I focus less on the shoulds and the musts and more on being myself and having fun – and it turns out I’m successful.
