Click on the link and make sure you give us your feedback and what you’d like for us to discuss next week!
Q. I’m worried that I haven’t been doing enough in the New Year that’s productive and to pursue my goals, really.How do I motivate myself more when i see my friends doing it?
Again, as I've mentioned prior, comparison shouldn’t be your driving factor when motivating yourself or pushing yourself forward- do it if you want to, and do it for YOURSELF. When you realize that you’re doing it for yourself, you’re going to naturally be more motivated to do something good for yourself and feel proud of the end result. No matter how small a step you take, that is a step forward toward your dreams and goals. And even that one small step should be celebrated to encourage the next and so forth!
Q. My friends, whom I introduced to each other, are hanging out without me. Do I have a right to be mad?
While it’s technically not the most mature thing, you absolutely have a right to feel angry and annoyed. Depending on if you intentionally introduced them or if it was circumstantial makes a big difference in how you’re “supposed” to feel. But, unfortunately, that’s not how our emotions work. Oftentimes, even though it’s irrational and illogical, and though we want the best for our friends, there is an inner child within us that is terrified of their unity, and our exclusion. The best way to combat this is to maybe have a talk with the friend you’re closer to, and let her know that you’d love for all three of you to hang out, without adding any dramatic flourishes to it. And if you’re still seeing that they’re doing it intentionally to not invite you, after that, you can make your own deductions into the friendships.
Q. How do I meet new men after getting out of a 4 year relationship? I feel so stunted and alone now that I'm single for the first time in a long time.
Don’t put so much pressure on it- your newfound single status isn;t some sort of flaw or error that you must remedy immediately by meeting a new man and getting into a new relationship. It’s a time for you to explore yourself and get to know the you you were before a four year relationship! That’s a lot of years to catch up on being with yourself! When you’re finally ready, you can start putting yourself out there-whether that be by going out more with friends and socializing, or something as simple as a dating app!
