when you feel worthlessWe have all had moments when we feel down. We do not feel as if we are succeeding in life, connecting with others, or worthy of any praise. Feeling worthless often includes feelings of hopelessness and insignificance. When feelings such as these arise, it can be challenging to move through the day in a usual manner. It can be hard to strive towards our goals, be motivated, and want to be around others. Working through these feelings of worthlessness is very important, and many find working with a professional to be helpful. Here are a few tips on how to handle these feelings at home.

Speak Kindly to Yourself

Speaking kindly to yourself is very important. Many times we can be our own harshest critic. Remember that you are doing your best and that you are doing a great job. It is okay not to be okay. It is ok to feel sad, mad, or simply exhausted. Talk nicely to yourself. Talk to yourself like you would talk to your best friend if they had a challenging day. Remind yourself that tomorrow can and will be better. Take a breath and relax. You are worth those kind words, and, eventually, you will begin to believe them.

Pay Attention to When You Feel These Emotions

Pay attention to when you feel these emotions the strongest. What triggered you to feel this way? Was it something someone said or something you did? Begin to keep a journal to keep track of how you feel day-to-day. Journaling can help reveal patterns about your emotions and experiences that you may never have noticed before. You can use this information to help you make the necessary changes to feel better. You can also bring this information when meeting with a mental health provider. The more information you can share, the better they can help you.

Feelings of inadequacy can be challenging. They can make it hard to be motivated, go for our goals, or be with others. Remembering to speak kindly to yourself is key. Speak to yourself just like you would talk to a loved one when they are going through a hard time. You are doing fine, and things will get better. Keep track of your feelings so that you can work on breaking negative patterns. Here at The Guest House, we know that it can be hard to know where to start.
