The last year has been extremely overwhelming for the majority of us. Trying to cope with the changes in our daily lives and the concerns about the state of the world, all while trying to take care of yourself.
It is another metaphor to show that going with the flow, even when that flow is slow, is the easiest and most sustainable way to go.
Perfectionism often leads to procrastination and more overwhelm, which is counterproductive. Keep in mind that good is good enough.
Setting clear boundaries for yourself and others is the perfect way to deal with overwhelm.
When you’re feeling overwhelmed, it could be because you’re pleasing other people. It is not your responsibility to let other people feel good. It is their responsibility.
Going slow and steady is more important than making drastic changes in your life and giving up on them after a short while.
