EP169: I Can’t Handle It!

Minds love dramatic, sensational statements.

And if you don’t know better, you might be very tempted to take them seriously. They’ll say things like: 

“I can’t handle this”.

“I don’t know how I’ll make it through.”

“I’m lost. I don’t know what to do next.”

“I’m barely keeping my head above water.”.

But here’s the thing: Your mind saying these things is completely irrelevant. Your mind doesn’t know what to do, how things will turn out, how to handle things. But it doesn’t need to.

Your mind says these things as life is living you. As things are already being “handled” and as you’re already “making it through”.

This episode will show you that these sensational statements are completely irrelevant. They are occurring while life is living you.
