This month’s theme is Reflections and you can get the free
worksheet at AffirmationPod.com/Reflect
This is a different episode. It started as an Actionable Tip for anyone who is seeing a counsellor or therapist, but after some reflection (the theme for this month), I decided to go more audio blog style.
I describe my experiences presenting at a local transition home, where some of the residents were feeling the need to advocate for themselves. I also share a story of a time when I first started out as a clinical counsellor, when I didn't advocate for myself.
We have many reasons and excuses for not speaking up for ourselves. But I hope this episode inspires us all to speak up, draw some lines and advocate for ourselves.
The sister episode to this one is Episode 184 Saying No and Being Overly Responsible

Life can get difficult. Jobs are lost, hearts are broken, plans get changed, things go wrong. We’ve all been there.
But when life gives you lemons, how do you cope? How do you navigate through grief with resilience? How do you control your emotions instead of letting them control you?
Maybe you have unhealthy coping strategies. Maybe you bury your emotions, talk down to yourself, or power through the day without allowing yourself even a moment of rest and reflection.
