Overwhelmed Can Be Transformative

Overwhelmed Can Be Transformative

by Michael Feeley June 23, 2021


THE WORD OVERWHELMED is following me around. It comes up in my coaching work, and several people I know have been talking about feeling overwhelmed with work, family, and relationships.

Overwhelmed has two meanings – one that points at the negative feelings of overpowered, challenged, daunted, swamped by something such as learning new skills, settling into a new job – feelings that can lock you down and even numb you with fear or confusion.


There’s the positive flip side to overwhelmed – where you’re saturated with goodness, overwhelmed by support, or emotions of joy, gratitude, love.

Overwhelmed can have transformation and confidence in it as you rise to a challenge and work your way through it to feel calm and comfortable with the once unfamiliar and new.

It’s a choice to feel overwhelmed – a mindset that you can let control you or – be in charge and find a solution – get results – change overwhelm into something better.
