The Open Door Project
Let's break this cycle together!
Life can often feel like a carousel, as we go round and round in circles, facing the same old problems, time and time again. It can prove difficult, trying to break the cycle. Therefore, we are left feeling stuck, frustrated unable to move on.
And even when we manage to jump off, we can find ourselves, back on yet another carousel, going round and round, facing the same old drama!
The Build Up
The build-up of many small stress factors e.g. the commute to work, school run, credit card bills, bank loans, appliance breakdown, pressure at work, unrealistic goals and expectations, increase use of internet etc, is now thought to play a significant part in mental well-being.
We seem to be bombarded with so many different pressures on a daily basis, that it all becomes just too much.
Modern life has been described by some, as an assault on one’s senses invading our outer space and inner world. Every moment of the day is filled with noise or a busy hive of activity
- telephone, television, radio, video games, computer, IPad...
In a world that never sleeps, our bodies are never given a moments rest. Day and night they are bombarded with an onslaught of sounds and images flickering off and on all throughout our waking day.
And if you're not watching... well... Big Brother is! Watching our every move, pointing out every flaw and so-called imperfections for everyone to see!
And we don't seem to know how to switch it all off!
Some believe, that we have become a more target driven society, where the demand for excellence has become all too common place.
Unless you have a long list of credentials before your name, you may not be thought worthy or even capable of carrying out what was once considered the simplest of tasks.
Along with these new, expert job titles, there comes a hefty price. Not only job titles have changed, but job descriptions have also changed. Roles have evolved, diversified, growing more and more complex along with many more duties employees are expected to carry out in order to fulfill these impressive titles.
Home life is not any less demanding. To be the 'good enough' parent or individual, we are expected to play out so many different roles - Cook, Chef, Cleaner, Maintenance, Caretaker, Chauffeur, Driver, Finance, Mediator, Team Player... you name. we play it!
The demand for excellence and some may even call it 'perfection' seems to gnaw at every part of our everyday existence - how we walk and talk, how we dress and express...
We can't seem to escape!
