https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yAuOX31pf6U There is a lot going on in the world, and even if your life is not dramatically different right now, your brain is still working hard to try to keep you safe, but it doesn't know exactly what to do which is why it's more tired than usual.

Have I convinced you how important self-trust is yet?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xfrkVMCif9M It's hard to always know if we are acting out of ego or out of our true self. But it's important we learn the difference because when we act out of ego, we never feel truly satisfied because the ego seeks from the outside to overcompensate for a lack on the inside - which, it can never truly do. Watch this video here on my channel @Julia Kristina Counselling a few times and really take it in, and learning how to act out of your true self vs. your ego self will transform [...]

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=We2ccnX0RbU The goal in life isn't to be happy all the time - that's not the point. We need to be able to experience the full spectrum of emotions. But there are things that make us unnecessarily unhappy and take from, instead of add to, our lives. We don't need to be happy all the time to have a full and rich life, but there are things you may be doing that are making you stay unhappy when you don't need to be - here are 6 of them.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PSOyFAIzvPo Confidence is created by how we think, act and think about how we act. You weren't born confident or insecure - you learned to be And just as being insecure is something you developed, you can engage with specific ways of thinking and showing up in your life what will develop your confidence. Many of these confidence boosters counter-intuitive, and I think you're going to get a lot out of them.

Why you can't forgive them. Forgiving someone can be really hard. It's hard to forgive when it hurts. Especially if we think that after we forgive them we have to forget what happened and get close to the person again. We think we have to forgive and forget because the saying says so, but we can absolutely forgive and not forget. You can let go of the past without forgetting that it happened and today I'm going to teach you how. #forgiveness #lettinggo #forgive

We all learn ways in which to cope with everything that is thrown at us each day. What works for one person may not work for another. And what has worked in the past, is sometimes not enough in the present. Have you been looking for new ways to shift your mood? Have you tried exploring your creativity? I know, I know, “’creativity?’ Ha! I’m not an artist. NOPE, that’s definitely not for me!” Well actually, you may consider yourself a “non-creative” but if you can put pen to paper or [...]

This social media thing almost seemed to come out of nowhere. Well, not really, I guess it all kind of started years ago with MySpace. Myspace, do you remember that one? What ever happened to MySpace? I guess they became the Nokia of the social media world...I can’t help but feel sad, for both. But this social media thing, that’s not really a thing, but has pretty much become a way of life.
