It has been a while since I featured something from Mel Robbins. She is one of my favorite thinkers and she shares a valuable message.
While Mel speaks referring to romantic relationships and companionship, it’s important to extend the same thought into different areas. Is that new car going to make you intrinsically happy, or is it compensating for something you’re afraid to admit. Is your social media page filled with affirmations that you don’t live by? So often, when we come across challenges, we look for solutions and explanations that are out of our control. There is a comfort in not taking responsibility for things. But those external things are just band aids, and if you want to really cut to the core of the issue, you need to look inside yourself.
