Being true to yourself can be challenging. It takes belief in oneself, and a commitment to working on continually improving our perspective and eliminated the negative self talk.
In his new book “The Overwhelmed Brain” author Paul Colaianni guides the reader through a series of stories and exercises that are designed to to stop our self-sabotaging behaviors and replace them with self compassion. Paul states that “honoring others over yourself is like dishonoring yourself”. Compassion starts on the inside, and when you have enough of it for yourself, only then can you spread it out into the world for others.
“The Overwhelmed Brain” is about ways to look at yourself with the benefit of improving your relationships with others. Paul encourages us to not always think that the other person needs changing, usually it is our attitude and belief that need to be changed. Once we alter our beliefs, we can change our feeling and emotions about the other person. This is a formula for successful relationships. Always look at what you can change to improve your relationship with another person that is difficult to get along with.
