I can’t sleep, not really. I constantly find myself in a state of anxiety. I’m snappy. I am in a type of freeze state. I’m feeling down and I consistently worry.
I have no doubt that there are many people out there who are nodding in agreement. Who are also feeling all these things or have experienced them before. I am describing the experience of having to deal with an event that is possibly life changing, but possess a great big, fat unknown factor.
People, we HAVE to learn! Almost every person has gone through some or other life experience, I should say worried through (not gone through) a life experience, only to look back at it and realize that it was not as terrible as we thought it would be. It didn’t have the impact we predicted. It was something that could be learned from.
Yet when we go through the next challenge in our lives we do it all over again.
If you are going through a rough patch; look back, see how you have fought and won in the past. See what you have learnt. Remember not to give in to the “but what if” thoughts. Use all the tools at your disposal. If necessary seek professional assistance to keep you on the logical track.
Maybe this time you can get though one of life’s challenges without the terrible emotional roller coaster.
