Our minds are really clever at working against us. At talking us into a negative place. It can so often feel like our mind is on a one woman mission to make life as hard as possible.
It has a professional qualification in creating noise - the kind of spinning, clumpy, head banging noise you get from putting too much washing in the washing machine and hitting the ‘extra spin’ button.
It loves to work over time too, going down every worst case scenario rabbit hole, an exhausting journey that ends up taking you back to where you started. And it can be the worst critic you have ever met - pulling you apart, piece by piece.
Sometimes, it likes to have all night parties, it just doesn’t want to switch off. Yet despite all of this, from the outside, it presents as being cool, calm and collected.
That’s why sharing what goes on in your head is SO important. It’s exhausting to try and hide what’s really going on. Your mind can absolutely be your best friend, your wing woman - it can literally move mountains with you. But you’ve got to work with it, and on it, and take the time to really understand it. Friendship is a two way thing.
