Not everyone gets “Happily Ever After”. Sometimes you are faced with situations or challenges that just happen to catch you off guard. There are conditions that may cause you to feel uncomfortable, anxious, or even fearful. I am not speaking necessarily about physical challenges, which will be a topic for another time. I am referring s to situations in your day to day life.
Most often, our society is so quick to offer drugs to help us cope. This will only mask the problem. So then… How do you cope?Coping is a learned behavior. Understanding the issue you are faced with, goes much deeper than the knowledge of knowing. Once you are able to understand the circumstance, then you can learn to navigate through the challenge you are facing. Some of you can “Breathe” or”Meditate” your way through. Others may find an activity such as an “Exercise” that will stimulate your mind, which it opposite of meditation. Whatever it is that works for you, do it! If you need some help, seek it! Sometimes having someone who will listen, or someone you can express your feelings to, invite it!
Open the door to your mind. It’s called “Classic Thinking”. It teaches you to move through life, seeking awareness and ascending towards your needs. You will then learn to cope. You will see that in time these feelings held inside will pass and that you will become stronger every day.
Live a happier and healthier life, by learning to cope.
