As the rain pitter patters on the roof, I dive into this memoir my mom wrote. My childhood in written form of the stories deeply set in my memory. Others, of those unanswered questions I've always thought but never asked. I am entertained but am also saddened by the knowledge of what is to come. #readon#author#memoir#childhood
Our brains are like plasticine!
Our brains are wonderfully elastic. With effort we can create new pathways and therefore new ways of looking at things. Of course if we don’t make any effort then old pathways are kept strong and so are old ways of looking at things.
This applies to dealing with anxiety. Emotions that are imprinted through experience can only changed through creating new responses to experiences.
By gently nudging your responses in a new direction, you’ll eventually find plenty of different options for how you might react to something that made you feel nervous or scared before.
Which is exactly why we’ve designed The Epic Fail Game as a physical and social experience, rather than a story or text book.
Our aim is to replace disappointment with a laugh and fear with fierceness.
