I give my clients and myself permission to have a pity party. Here's the #stresslesssecrets about that though: It can only be for less than 24 hours
Must have at least 3 ways written down that you've done better regarding this topic
Action at the party must be taken (this action comes from the steps that we use to get back to a state of calm)
During your pity party you have permission to yell, curse, cry, punch a pillow, but all must be done with only you and you cannot have anything that could physically cause harm to you at any time.
The purpose of the pity party is to allow ourselves to have real, raw emotions, but to also take control of them. Taking control of ourselves is the best place to start to reduce stress and anxiety. Often times, our stress and anxiety is because others did not meet the expectations that we held for them and our intentions did not come to fruition in the way that we believed they should have. We say yes to too many things or say no to the things that we should have said yes to. We make decisions when we are in a place of fear instead of power. We get sick and tired of the same old stories and results, but no different or consistent action had been taken so we are just "sick and tired". The final rule to Pity Party is decide why this thing is important enough to you to change. Not how can you make it happen, but why must it happen.
