Do you feel supported in your struggle against trichotillomania by those closest to you? This video shares with you the importance of surrounding yourself with positive influences – and if the influences around you are less than positive, how to begin building a more supportive, more helpful, and more positive network of friends and associates.
Are You Soaring with The Eagles? Or…
In life, it’s important to realize that the people we surround ourselves with has everything to do with our levels of health, happiness and overall positive outlook. It’s no different when it comes to trichotillomania; your social environment has a powerful impact on just how hopeful and generally positive you are with regard to your hopes and dreams for an eventual cure.
If you haven’t been paying enough attention to this question, you’re not alone. Most of us could probably say that other things – things that seem more important in the moment – take priority during the course of day to day living.
But life can be about more than just surviving – merely getting from one day to the next. Like anything else, you can be intentional with just about everything in your life – including increasing and enhancing the relationships you believe would contribute to a greater sense of positive expectancy.
This week’s video discusses this idea in some detail, and sheds additional light on the value of being purposeful about the quality of relationships you allow to enter in your life.
As always, Glei and I would love to know what you think! Tell us – what have you noticed about the quality of your own relationships, and how they have influenced you one way or another in your thinking about what’s possible for you? Do you feel stronger and more positive because of the relationships in your life? Or do you believe they detract from the hope you hold out for an eventual cure? However it is for you, you can just about bet other readers will know exactly how you feel!
