In this episode Krystal & Christina share some of the negative effects of fantasizing or daydreaming about situations and how they “should” or “we hope” they will play out. Life is unpredictable and to have unrealistic expectations about things can be dangerous to our self-esteem.
Silent triggers are those super-reactive places inside you that become activated by someone else’s behaviors or comments. When triggered, you may either withdraw emotionally and simply feel hurt or angry or respond in an aggressive way that you will probably regret later. Once you identify what is triggering your reactions in the moment, you give yourself the chance to feel differently if you want to.
Everyone endures hardships whether it be in relationships, finances, health, or other major life transitions. In those times, not only is your character being tested but so is the character of those you are connected to. Pay attention to friends and family who support you and those who walk away. When you come back up (because you will) remember those who remembered you.
Long distance relationships can be tough to manage; the pressures and temptations that come along can be a hinderance to maintaining a healthy connection. Add inexperience with a heaping spoonful of immaturity (for those who are still in college/early 20’s) and you have a recipe for disaster (in most cases). This episode Krystal and Christina share some of their early long distance dating woes.
