I have heard so many times that you have to embrace change and difficulties when they come, that I thought I had totally understood the idea. And probably I had, but as usual when it comes to apply our knowledge in real life, things become difficult.
We are all excellent for theory but when practice time arrives, the story is quite different, same thing when giving advice to others, we already know what to say to them in any situation THEY have to face, but when we are in the same predicament, all those answers and solutions vanish from our head.
Few years ago after living for a long time very comfortably in a nice area of my city, they sold the house I was renting and I was immediately required to move to a different place. That was really traumatic for me, because it had all the ingredients for a home brewed tragedy:
- It was totally unexpected and undesired.
- It took me out of my routine and comfort.
- It was terrifying since it meant taking a leap into the unknown.
- There was not apparent solution nor any option in front of me.
- I was left alone by all my “friends” and family when I needed them the most. They just disappeared.
- I just was paralysed by fear.
- And an endless list of extras continued.
So when things get really overwhelming for you to handle and, you have done everything you can, or at least all you know you can try, the only thing you are left with is, to just breathe and have faith that everything will work out for the best.
Stop thinking, worrying, imagining, obsessing, etc.
