“When I am Overwhelmed”, I sense a difference is needed, but cannot always slow down and do what I think will bring relief. Whether right or wrong, when I react to being overwhelmed by resisting my situation or other individuals, I know I am being less than my best.

The articles in this category present the ways we all suffer, including being overwhelmed, and how we can receive relief by recognizing and accepting ourselves. Next time you are overwhelmed, reflect on the futility of past attempts to find relief by resisting circumstances or trying to change those around you. Instead of resisting, can you “dial back” enough to give a few moments of new attention to accepting whatever you feel?
