“I started to wonder if I was worth spending my time on things that made me happy.”
You may not have linked feeling overwhelmed to feeling low on self-worth.
Or maybe you have.
I hadn’t until about a year ago when I started to come out of a season of deep emotional overwhelm.
I spent about six months getting very curious about the overwhelm I was in (triggered by a family fall out initiated by my actions) and what I learned about myself and my worth set the stage for the Worthfull Project.
But it didn’t occur to me to record a solo episode sharing what I’ve learned until my friend Rebecca suggested it.
And then I loved the idea because I’ve spent months thinking about this and wanted to share what I have learned in case it might support anyone else who is in deep overwhelm.
Here’s the thing: it wasn’t until I went deep down the rabbit hole of overwhelm that I began to face the truth about my worth — and that it had nothing to do with how productive I was being in a day. It had everything to do with how I took care of myself.
If you have experienced or are experiencing any kind of overwhelm in your life, I invite you to take off your self-judgment lenses for a moment and reconsider what this feeling may be here to show you.
