How do we deal with plateaus and make progress?
There are no straight lines in life. Well. Not from my perspective anyways, if that counts for anything. 😆
When we chart our own progress with anything; it's helpful to take a top down view. We tend to see things linearly if we don't and any set back or regression (which is normal) might be seen as a failing or a move backwards; and we feel disheartened. BUT, it's entirely normal for growth to be more of a wiggly trendline. It's just that we notice the dips more than the tops because we're designed to sense something threatening and focus our attention on that; such as a regression being threatening to our integrity/ego.
So next time you're feeling bummed about your apparent lack of progress, just look back and see how far you've come. Recognise that life is not a straight line. There are always ups and downs. Zooming out, take a birds eye view of your progress. It helps us get away from selective bias in our thinking.
It's hard to raise emotionally sensitive kids.
But you don't have to feel so stuck.
