A client mentioned this phrase earlier to me……
People sometimes keep themselves purposely busy to the point of chaos. This can be because it helps them avoid something. I often call this ‘stuckness.’ Being busy and getting things done can seem positive and yes, you do move stuff forwards. It can also be about creating a busy, positive seeming smokescreen to avoid making decisions or doing things that are uncomfortable.
It’s almost like you find a great way to hide the thing that you’re unconsciously (or consciously) putting off. What better way to prevent yourself from doing it, than to seem incredibly busy doing some great, positive things, and seeming to just get s**t done?
But I see you. I see you staying somewhere that’s making you unhappy because you don’t know how to leave.
I notice you hiding from the spotlight, so you don’t have to step up and be ‘seen’.
I see you keeping yourself stuck in the same loop, repeating the same day over and over.
Whilst this may feel like a comfortable strategy to start with, the more you practice it, the harder it becomes to change.
Start by doing something, anything, differently and be curious about what happens.

It’s great to have a leading psychotherapist such as Wendy in the Cheshire area, outside of her Harley Street practice. After publicly raising awareness of mental health issues and myself recovering from depression, I know how immensely life-changing expert intervention can be.
