“The longer we dwell on our misfortunes, the greater is their power to harm us.”
– Voltaire

Tip/Reminder
The more time we spend in the rut of our misfortune the deeper the rut becomes and the harder it seems to climb out of it. The place to begin is to ask yourself, “What Am I Feeling Right Now?” and then to follow that up with the Freeze-Frame technique. Do you have any ruts that need filling?

What Am I Feeling Right Now?
