120: Managing Your Worries
One of the great things about being human is that we have a sophisticated brain capable of doing amazing things. But so often, we let our minds run wild and have their wicked way with us. You might think of your mind as a reliable master, but it’s actually a wild beast that does whatever it wants and you don’t even realize it.
When you let your mind run the show, you don’t relate to things that concern you in the most productive way. If there is something in your life that you want to address, like an infidelity situation, worry is usually the first thing that comes to mind, followed closely by unrealistic solutions that you hope will solve everything in one fell swoop. It might even seem like the world will fall apart if you dare to even try to not worry.
Infidelity situations can feel confusing and overwhelming for so many different reasons. It’s so easy to get lost in your unhelpful patterns of thinking, so tune in this week because Dr. Marie Murphy is discussing how you can deal with your brain’s tendencies and really start managing your worries in a much more helpful way.
