Even though, I want to change my life, but I feel overwhelmed. I don’t know where to begin, I want to accept my feelings now.
Start at the eyebrow and tap through the points:
I’m not where I want to be. ~ I’ve tried to change things and I always seem to fall flat. ~ Where do I start? ~ I wish things were better. ~ There must be something wrong with me. ~ I see other people creating success in their lives. ~ This just makes me feel worse. ~ I’m comparing myself. ~ It feels pretty punishing to do this actually. ~ I don’t know what’s really going on for them. ~ And yet I’m beating myself up. ~ Using a comparsion to do so. ~ Wow, this really sucks. ~ It just makes me feel worse about myself. ~ How do I shift this? ~ How do I start to feel better? ~ What if, the way to feel better, is to see that I can shift this slowly? ~ What if I can set and intention, to just feel a little bit better than I feel right now? ~ Maybe I’m trying to feel a feeling that’s too far out of reach right now. ~ Maybe I’m reaching beyond where I can go right now emotionally. ~ What if it’s better to think about feeling a little better than I do right now? ~ This kind of feels like a relief.
Take a Breath.

Even though, I think I might be judging myself a bit. I chose to acknowledge I feel this way.

Even though, I’m starting to see, that sometimes, what’s happening for me, is I’m trying to feel monumentally better too quickly and I just can’t yet. I want to love and accept myself anyway.

I like the idea that I can feel a little better first. ~ I like the idea that if I just try to feel a little better right now, that feels more attainable. ~ I understand that there are times I feel negative emotions ~ And what if that’s okay. ~ I’m human, with human feelings. ~ I like the idea that as I make it my intention, right now, to just feel a little better, I can achieve. ~ I like knowing that when I ease up on myself, this already feels better. ~ I understand that, I’m human and I have emotions that sometimes I just don’t want to feel. ~ And this is okay. ~ I feel relieved to know that it’s easier to just attempt to feel a little better than I do right now. ~ Maybe I’ve just been trying to hard to feel something that’s currently out of reach for me right now. ~ I like knowing that it won’t stay this way. ~ I like the idea that it’s a lot easier to feel better slowly over time. ~ What a relief! ~ Phew! ~ I think I actually feel a little better just knowing this right now. ~ And guess what? ~ I think I’ve just done it. ~ I feel a little better. ~ And from here I can start to feel a little better. ~ And then a little better. ~ And then a little better. ~ And before I know it. ~ I’m in a much better place.
