For most of us, at some stage in life we encounter hard times. Our business may fail, some one dies or else you may be a victim of abuse and have post traumatic stress.
The most important fact, is that the choices we make when we go through tough times. My advice, is to choose to overcome and if it’s too hard, talk to a good friend or family member that you trust. Its it’s just too hard, go to a Health professional. Tell this to yourself, you are going to survive and you are going to get through this.
A lot of ex soldiers or people who have been abused in some way, lived in a wall of silence and don’t like to talk about it. Some times talking about it helps with someone you trust. Anyone who has fought in a war doesn’t come out unscathed.
Suffering stress, anxiety or depression is a natural human condition. The important thing to remember, is that you are not alone and that maybe when you come through this trial. You will become stronger and may comfort some one else.
Just a thought, if you really want “World Peace”, it will cost you to become a peace maker. You need to learn to forgive. Do not allow bitterness or sadness to define what you are, or even fear. Over coming costs, it’s a hard thing to do, but at the end of the day you will come through it, even if it means seeing a professional. You will get through and become strong.
Forgiveness is not excusing others for their wrongs, forgiveness is to make a decision not to seek revenge. My mental pray, is to bless the people but and I say but, pray that they receive a very large dose of moral conscience for their actions.
Unforgiveness causes wars and that has gone on far too long. My wish is that everyone can learn to get on with each other. Problems can be sorted by a willingness to discuss and consider others points of view but not neglecting to point out your own. You can work out what suits all to the best that can be done. It may be difficult, but its much better than a war.
A sexual predator or an alcholic may never change their stripes. You can never fully trust them, but you can let it go, and so that you can grow out of the bind. Walk away, and move on with your own life.
As for anxiety. In my family if they had nothing to worry about they were worrying about what they were not worried about. Best thing is meditation, concentration on something other than what you were worried about. It’s called, “Lateral thinking” Creative people use it all the time, when they get a writing block or can’t thing what to do next.
Most of us learn to solve step by step. Sometimes you get so close to a problem you can’t figure out what to do next and everything becomes a blank. Leave it, get into yoga, go for a walk, read a book. Come back to it later, and then suddenly, the answer may come to you about what to do.
