    The Scientific Underpinnings and Impacts of Shame -- Stanford BeWell

    Research-Findings-Chart-01-e1562113196553.png

    “Learning to be self-forgiving is a skill that requires practice. Over time, you will notice that you are more relaxed, open and happy. You will be able to notice and appreciate how much pleasure can be found in a simple moment, how much there is to be grateful for in everyday life, and how much the world needs you and your special gifts and talents.”

    A First Aid Kit for When Life Falls Apart
    By Helena Ínneby

    ...I wrote this poem to myself a few years back, to remind myself. I think it sums it up quite perfectly.

    To me, if I ever end up there again, and to anyone else, who's ever been there, or are right now, in the black hole:

    It will get better. There is a meaning to what you're going through.

    You will feel like living again.

    If you can't do anything else but breathe, do just that; you don't have to do anything else.

    Don't fight it. Let it be. It is as it should be and it's okay. Just be. Don't judge. Let go.

    Look at what's beautiful. Listen to what gives you peace. Eat what tastes good. Do what feels nice. Even if it feels pointless right now, it's good for your soul.

    Ask for help.

    Let other people help you. Let other people take care of you.

    Cry. Scream. Wail. Laugh. Sleep. Close your eyes. Do whatever you need to do. Let it out. And embrace.

    It will get better. I promise.

    How to Boost Resilience in Midlife

    Don't Personalize It. We have a tendency to blame ourselves for life's setbacks and to ruminate about what we should have done differently. In the moment, a difficult situation feels as if it will never end. To bolster your resilience, remind yourself that even if you made a mistake, a number of factors most likely contributed to the problem and shift your focus to the next steps you should take.

    Telling yourself that a situation is not personal, pervasive or permanent can be extremely useful...There is almost no failure that is totally personal.

    The Surprising Boost You Get From Strangers - WSJ

    Sometimes a stranger—not a friend or a loved one—can significantly improve our day. A pleasant encounter with someone we don’t know, even a nonverbal one, can soothe us when no one else is around. It may get us out of our own head—a proven mood booster—and help broaden our perspective.

    How to Disagree with Someone More Powerful than You
    Harvard Business Review

    Principles to Remember

    Do:

    • Explain that you have a different opinion and ask if you can voice it.
    • Restate the original point of view or decision so it's clear you understand it.
    • Speak slowly -- talking in an even tone calms you and the other person down.


    Don't:

    • Assume that disagreeing is going to damage your relationship or career - the consequences are often less dramatic than we think.
    • State your opinions as facts; simply express your point of view and be open to dialogue.
    • Use judgment words, such as "hasty," "foolish," or "wrong," that might upset or incite your counterpart.

    Or hang this up in your office or cubicle (or have it laminated to your backpack):

    Or there's this for office wear:
