Working with metaphors.
We have metaphors about almost everything, metaphors can be extremely helpful or they can be extremely limiting.
Metaphors serve as higher frames about meanings we create about our ideas of life, jobs, people, relations, the world, love, emotions, and so on.
Answer the question:
What’s life like?
What’s the world like?
If you have a limiting metaphor like, “Life’s unfair, you’ll be disappointed more often and would be much happy” or “Life is a race, you would probably running all the time”
If you have a helpful metaphor about life like “Life is like a adventure park, you would probably can have all the fun even with ups and downs”
A person mentioned his metaphor about how he gets depressed and well, I did my best:
Well, STOP and say to yourself Stop out loud.
Take a U turn and then drive towards better thinking, good feelings, effective actions in the direction of what you want.
You are not your thoughts, You are more.
You can create thougths, might as well create the good ones, the helpful ones.
Drive towards new thinking, new roads, new destinations, new feelings, it’s your powers, own them.
