There are many reasons that we are overwhelmed right now, but we all do overwhelm differently.
My personality type will handle it one way while my husband, kids and friends personality type will handle it another. I, like Kathi, have the type of personality that can easily give a pat answer to a situation based on how we handle things. That is not what someone who handles overwhelm differently needs to hear.
Kathi reminds us that we need to be joyful with those who are joyful and grieve with those who grieve. We need to be able to acknowledge other’s pain even when we have not experienced it.

In today’s episode Kathi gives us 5 common ways we become overwhelmed by the daily decisions we face.

Kathi also gives me great advice on how to handle the overwhelm I am having as I pack up my home of 18 years and move across the states.
What are some of reasons you experience overwhelm?
I would love to hear your story and pray with you. Your reasons will shed light on just how different we are, and yet we all need compassion.
