I’m sure most of you might have, at one point or another in your lives, felt that you were being too harsh on yourself, beating yourself up, most probably because of mistakes you made.

For those suffering from social anxiety, not only are we doing that for mistakes made, we are also being overly critical of ourselves for almost everything we do daily.

Either way, whether you have social anxiety or not, I want to share a therapist’s advice, which I feel would benefit everyone. He shared some advice about being overly critical and making unfair judgement of ourselves.

How many of you tend to over think things? I admit, I do.

I actually engage in time travel! Well not exactly like Back to the Future, but it’s a form of time travel.

It’s because, social anxiety, like many other forms of anxiety, shares the cognitive process of “time travelling,” which means I am often thinking 10 steps ahead of what is actually happening.

I tend to make predictions about the future, which are…

Sometimes you feel very driven and motivated, and sometimes you feel totally down and you feel like a loser. There are also times when you accomplish many amazing things and you achieve your goals, and there are also times when you hit roadblocks and you are facing the challenges, and you are like, you are NOT sure whether or not you are on the right path.

I'm sure many of us experience all of these before in life.

Steve Jobs once said in a speech at Stanford, he said "Sometimes life is going to hit you in the head with a brick. Don’t lose faith."

Ok, it may not be easy, but keep moving forward and be hopeful, don't lose faith. And understand that it is NOT what you go through that defines you - it is how you DEAL with them 😊😊

So, it is your choice and your decision that make your life. It is what you do that makes you, YOU! OK, So..choose to do the right thing to live a meaningful life, inshaAllah.

Ok so here are a few tips that I want to share that I …

All of us are in pursuit of our own success in our own journey right? And I am sure you all can agree how challenging it can be.

But, you know what happens when you actually succeed? There will be people around you who feel that success comes easy for you.

It is usually one of 2 things - they will compare. They will say you have that quality and they don’t. They will say you have the advantage over them. They feel that everything has been laid out for you on a silver platter and that’s why you succeed.

Or they will feel that they are ethically or morally superior than you. They feel that the reason you succeed is because you must have done something that is not ethical or something that is not morally right. They feel that you must have cheated your way towards success.

Either way, they will feel that success comes easy for you to the point that they feel that it’s unfair that you get to achieve that success.

I am saying this not to discourage you. I want you to be prepar…

Do you feel that you no longer feel excited about life?

You feel that life is pretty mundane for you and it’s full of routines. You eat pretty much the same thing for breakfast everyday, commute the same route five days a week. You alternate between 10 outfits and two pairs of shoes.

And then when you have some free time, you will take out your phone and browse through photos on FB or Instagram, scrolling down the apps, just to see what everybody else is up to.

Sometimes you just wish you were somewhere else and doing something else. But somehow you’re not sure what you would be doing. But what you know is — you wish life was more exciting.

How many of you feel this way?

We all have been there at one point in our life. Honestly, I have been there before! Sometimes it lasts for a few days. Sometimes it lasts for years. Actually it’s like the most undesirable feeling ever to feel that your life is not exciting anymore. It’s like you don’t have anything to look forward to the next …
