We’re in the middle of a mental stability series. If you haven’t caught videos 1-3, be sure to go back and check them out.
We have days when we feel more mentally stable and days when we feel less stable. Have you made a list of how your behaviors differ in a mentally stable state versus times you feel less stable?
Today, we’re looking at our relationships. Do you invest in people or initiate intimacy when you’re mentally stable? Do you find yourself waiting on others to initiate or even choose isolation when you don’t feel so great?
As you become aware of your habits, you can begin the slow and hard work to change your behavior. The next time you say to yourself, “I’m not going to spend time with this person,” ask yourself if you feel less mentally stable than usual. Then, what if you go ahead and make the decision you’d make when you feel more mentally stable. Maybe you can trick your brain and build mental stability through doing behaviors that you typically do in a mentally stable state!
