You must master your environment before you depart it

I was listening to a podcast the other day and the interviewee was talking about the best piece of advice he ever received from a mentor. “You must master your environment before you depart it.” There are times where this isn’t possible or safe to do so – for example, in a situation of domestic violence. But the statement got me thinking about how a lot of us will jump from one similar situation to another, never learning the lessons…

Would you rather be in pain than spend time alone with yourself?

I was listening to a Jay Shetty video the other day and he quoted a study where people were given the option of either sitting in a room with their own thoughts for 15 minutes, or giving themselves an electric shock. 60% of men and 30% of women gave themselves a shock, rather than spend 15 minutes alone with their own head.

How are you allowing your partner to treat you?

I was chatting to a friend the other day about a guy she’s been seeing for a few months. She was really upset about the way she’s being treated and she’s well aware that she’s allowing it to happen due to her own limiting beliefs and self-worth issues.  Not everyone is as aware as my friend about how much she is feeding into the situation. A lot of us in relationships can get stuck into blame and victim mode when things aren’t going…
