Notions, Expectations, and Mental Health

 

It’s amazing how something so seemingly insignificant that happens to you when you are a child can have tremendous impact on you as an adult.

Notions, those little traumas created in our childhood that create huge ripples as we become adults, and expectations that fuel our frustration, a powerful combination to say the least.

In this week’s Real Life Podcast, co-hosts Lou and John discuss how notions and expectations affect our mental health.

In this episode we discover:

– How are notions created
– How expectations fuel frustration
– How the combination of notions and expectations sabotage our mental health
– What we can do to safeguard our minds against the devastation these notions can bring
