The Coping Kete

No. 69: Growth instead of Achievement

This week, to attain, maintain or regain my sense of wellness…

rather than placing pressure on myself to ‘succeed’ or ‘achieve’, I am going to practice being aware of how I am growing.

As I move through my day, I will come back to the thought that “I am a work in progress, constantly learning how to handle life.”

This week I will remember that anything that goes seemingly ‘wrong’, will teach me how to deal with it better next time, so it actually has value for me and will make me stronger.

Once I am comfortable thinking of the ways I am growing in everyday situations, I will add this to my Personal Coping Kete as a way of soothing unwanted or distressing emotions. By reminding myself of things like this in times of stress, I can work to make sure the expectations I am placing upon myself are realistic.
