Feedback Friday: "Taking things one step at a time has helped"

We thought of sharing these two feedback from one of the posts we shared some days ago. Keep sending us how relatable (or not) the experiences of others are, what you are rumbling with and how it all can be better. We read every email.


... I have had the feeling of being behind my schedules too many times and I have also come to realise that I will always be or even feel that way. There is always a new plan, project, or even a health emergency that could put everything on hold. Simply taking things one step at a time has helped, being present in a task and not overthinking about the next has kept me more hopeful and grateful for the day.

The goal is really just to enjoy this life that is filled with a lot of uncontrollable circumstances.

Thanks to The Daily Vulnerable team, tell me, what can I do without y’all!?

Thank you very much for the post of today. I have felt so depressed the last days because I am struggling between job (where they are demanding more and more), school (I have to wrap up with my thesis…) and personal projects. 

I feel like I am useless and not designed for it even if I like what I am doing. Thanks for this insight that is giving me another perspective. 

Warm greetings…,

Don't hunker down

It is tempting to believe that you are alone in the world. Most times, you are not.

Hunkering down, shutting off everybody is the worst way to deal with trouble.

The best way to deal with trouble is to ask for help.

To trust other people.

To listen to them and receive the hand other people are presenting unto you.

The worst time to limit your perspective is when you are in trouble. Reach for help, and you'll get it.

Truth appeals

(by Daniel Pederson)

Universal truth is different from universal appeal. Because the truth isn’t always appealing. 

That’s why we sometimes avoid the truth. Ignoring the truth sometimes makes us feel better than knowing it. 

Ignorance can be bliss, because you can’t fear dangers you’re not aware of. But the truth we deny doesn’t go away.

What we don’t know can hurt us.

Groupthink is a big deal

(by Daniel Adeyemi)

I wonder if it should surprise me when people ignore obvious facts over allegiance to their group’s ideologies.

One thing social media obviously amplifies is that we’re social beings. Social media and mass actions constantly remind us that humans would rather support their tribes over facts or logic. 

When I see this happen, every now and then, it’s easy to keep looking around, being amused at others who are stuck in this weird bubble. But the truth is we’re all stuck in our bubbles. 

A more difficult task might be picking out which bubbles I’m currently stuck in, how I'm denying facts in favour of my tribe’s beliefs. 

We’d always belong to tribes so the way out is to keep asking, “What could my tribe be wrong about?”

I hope to spot this for myself even as I more easily spot this in others.

The Narrative

(by Geraldine Cunha-Herbert)

Slow down.

Assess your narratives; those stories that you are telling yourself.

What are they?

“I'm not good enough”

“I'm disadvantaged”

“I can't  do it”

“I'm not equipped”

How about changing that narrative? How about changing how it affects your life?

Focus on what you are capable of doing and being!

Tell yourself:

“I can do it”

“I am equipped”

“I have countless opportunities”

“I have many advantages”

It sounds too simple right? 

The truth is, that it is actually that simple! 

Take a shot at it!

What have you got to lose?
