Stress Management

Okay, this might sound crazy, but sometimes I feel like a total phony in my own life. Like I'm just playing a part and everyone else has it figured out. Is this normal, or am I just losing it? How do I stop feeling like a fake and actually embrace who I really am?

Hello , I am Riya satija a psychologist . Sometimes it happens when we see others around us we fight how sorted they are and we are just hanging in there and not able to sort things , but let me tell you everyone’s pace of growth is different. It is okay to feel this way and it is experienced by many people .

How can one be brave in life to face any kind of situation or hurdle in life ... plz give your advice ??
Hello, being brave is important, but also remember you don't have to be too hard on yourself. It's okay to ask for help whenever required. It is also a sign of bravery.
You should always challenge yourself about the any situation that yes you can do this by any way. Way out the things in a detailed manner

What is the 1 thought that stops you from taking a bold step in your relationship or career?
What if there has been no waste?? If the 4 years have been miserable, why put in more time to still get unfulfilling results? What is the 4 yrs, taught you more about yourself and now you know exactly what you need. If your partner is not giving it to you, maybe their sole purpose was just to teach you that. Time to make different choices
Yes the intention behind every step is necessary to know.. avoid focusing on result. Fear of being rejected or not supported comes from focusing on the result more than the intention. Most steps we need to take will have results that may not be supported, but they are still necessary for our personal growth. If not stay in the jail of emotional trauma. The CHOICE is always yours!

Hi girls, have you ever wondered why we choose to live? I mean, think about it. Every day, we wake up, go through the motions, and face all kinds of stress and uncertainty. We know life is finite, that we're going to die someday, yet we keep pushing on. Why? What's the point? I am currently in this situation, don't know what to do and what the point of living is.
I am Pragya Arora, a clinical psychologist and I have got you covered! It’s only natural to ponder the purpose of life. The finite nature of life makes it precious, encouraging us to make the most of our time, create experiences and leave an impact. Why don’t you connect with me to explore your feelings deeper and find your purpose?
Hey there It's quite human to question sense of purpose in life and it can get exaggerated when we're not finding hope or solutions to some problems. Being a part of the human experience is the bar to develop a sense of hope We all strive to have a better quality of life and get the worthwhile experience of existence. If you're struggling with finding sense of purpose, try to explore your goals and your dreams for your life and reflect on your past to plan your future. We know that one day it'll come to an end, but we can atleast make the journey exciting so as to leave a soul print. :)

want a happy life
be put there and enjoy to the fullest without thinking about what others would think because one or other way people will say things
Happiness is what you become! It is not about seeking it from outside but from within. If you become joyful and happy, people around you automatically become happier! Spread happiness by you becoming happy, and not seeking of it from others or things! Hope it's not too much..! Be it, to become it! Tc, Preetha Your coach

I often find myself getting frustrated with people who have different opinions, lifestyles, or ways of doing things than I do. I’ve heard the saying ‘live and let live,’ and I’m curious about why this philosophy is considered beneficial. Can you explain how adopting a ‘live and let live’ mindset can positively impact my life and relationships? What are the broader benefits for society when individuals embrace this approach?
Hii Anonymous, Adopting a 'live and let live' mindset can have some amazing benefits! First, it helps you accept and respect people for who they are, even if they're different from you. It promotes understanding and empathy, which can lead to healthier relationships and less conflict. Plus, it allows you to focus on your own happiness instead of getting caught up in others' choices. On a broader scale, when society embraces this approach, it fosters diversity, inclusivity, and harmony. It's all about spreading love and positivity! 🌈💖
Hey there Its common to wonder this especially when you feel that people have different opinions The way that this philosophy makes wonders if applied is that it frees up so much if your mental space from keeping all of others' opinions and experiences. We're all figuring out our way through life and learning our lessons while doing it. It just takes some people a little more time than us. Also it's alright to not take responsibility for other people's decisions, it can actually make you feel liberated and free up so much more of your mental capacity

I feel depressed want to overcome a situation and person
talk to a friend or a person who understands you... I wish I could 😞 but I have no one... you can seek somebody who cares. care can do wonders
it's time u give yourself priority. Exercising , walk in nature should help. listen to positive podcasts. Talk to a friend, vent out your feelings, cry if you have to. But that should be the last cry for that person and situation! if the above don't help take professional help.

I host several podcast it's a huge passion of mine and I also produce I strongly feel that empathy is the glue of humanity and without it what do we have for understanding one another and being kind toward one another is what keeps Us human it's what makes it work and without it what can possibly get better you must hold on to that and remember and show it where it's needed so that people can know what it is and be able to show that same to others connecting and growing with others is within the foundations of empathy that's how the world gets better so we can understand we don't have to directly know one another we must be that change and it starts with us, we must be the change we want to see!more
