Nat Lue 39th birthdayIt’s time for another episode of The Baggage Reclaim Sessions.

In episode 38, I cover:

38: Certain years in our life stand for certain lessons in our life and after turning 39 yesterday, I share what 38 meant for me including stretching my vulnerability.

The vicious cycle of self-criticism: When we’re very self-critical, we feel bad, which makes us more self-critical, which makes us feel even worse and can cause us to spend time around people who reflect our negative beliefs, which creates a self-fulfilling prophecy. | The 8 types of inner critic

Make a date with worry: Rather than letting worry take over, pencil a date and time in the diary for a worry session. Odds are that when it’s time, you won’t feel the same way [about the subject of your worrying].

Listener Question: Should I confront my best friend who seems to be withdrawing and snubbing me? Wendy feels understandably upset but I caution her on jumping to the worst conclusions.

What I Learned This Week: When things didn’t go to plan and my downloaded podcasts didn’t play in the car for my journey, I sang the entire way home instead and learned a valuable reminder about unexpected opportunities for relaxation.
