All this week we are sharing special episodes (some old, some new) to help our community navigate these challenging times.
Today’s episode is a modified version of a past episode with Dr. Joan Rosenberg on the topic of how to cope with anxiety and other unpleasant feelings.
Here are the original show notes from the episode:
What often blocks most people from success and feeling capable in life is the ability to experience, move through, and handle unpleasant feelings, such as sadness, shame, helplessness, anger, embarrassment, disappointment, frustration, and vulnerability.
Knowing how to deal with intense, overwhelming, or uncomfortable feelings is essential to building confidence, emotional strength, and resilience. Yet when we distract or disconnect from these feelings, we move away from confidence, health, and our desired pursuits, ultimately undermining our ability to fully realize our ambitions.
On today’s Broken Brain Podcast, I talk with my good friend, Dr. Joan Rosenberg about how to work through unpleasant feelings, and how to build emotional strength to create the life of your dreams. We discuss why worrying about what other people think of you is really just a distraction from feeling vulnerable, and why harsh self-criticism is one of the most destructive things we can do to ourselves. We also talk about why speaking your truth is the most important action to take to cultivate confidence, authenticity, and resilience.
