I’m not talking about chronic depression or bipolar rather that more common feeling of being STUCK. Have you ever felt this way? Do you still feel like this now? Essentially, this is where you become so used to feeling helpless that you believe it’s normal or at least normal for you. This can impact your life by feelings of being trapped in a toxic relationship, being bullied at work or feeling scared that you will never be successful. You find yourself being defensive, blaming others or feel they are critical of you. You’re struggling to feel their love and support.
The Mind Body Connection – Your body may be showing tell-tale signs like constant, back ache, knee pain, sore throats. Our mind and body are indeed connected. Amazing how you can find excuses for all these ailments rather than listening to what they want to tell you. When we believe that we are a helpless, hopeless human, we are running the ‘victim program’. This is not a time for denial rather a time to ask for help.
The Blind Spot- That ‘victim program’ is driving the whole show. The chances are you are not consciously aware of what is at the root of the feeling, and that is what makes it so difficult to tackle. The ‘victim program’ is sitting in your sub-conscious, running automatically unobserved, firing off when under stress or trigger buttons pushed. Most of the time life can run smooth as you have learned lots of coping strategies along the way.
Finding the Saboteur – Hypnotherapy can help you discover your ‘sabotage program’, there are numerous ways to change that program which can allow you to feel a sense of freedom, see your choices and find flexibility in life. Life will continue to dish out challenging moments, that is how life is, what makes the difference, is how you think, feel and respond. Have you ever felt that helplessness? How did you get out of it? I would love to hear from you.
