Today I’ve been thinking about how fear paralyzes our lives and its relativity. Your resistance to troubles and facing them depends on your prior experience.
The harder your problems are, the sillier the other ones seem to you. What yesterday made you shake, today makes you laugh. The story of my life. Along my life, I’ve learned to relativize my concerns.
I remember anxiety attacks because of exams when I was in high school, terrible nervousness when I got my driving license or that panic of job interviews. Now, those challenges seem a tiny little memory turned into a dot I can’t even properly remember.
Nowadays, my daughter’s wellness, education and happiness fill the ninety percent of my worries, work, money and health are the rest. Compulsive overthinking becomes a routine which keeps you in line. Alive. I look beyond the situation, have a deep breath and visualize where will I be in two months. Normally, the situation would be solved and I avoid tons of anxiety. But it takes time and practice.
The main point of not getting drowned is to keep your eyes fixed on your target. What are you fighting for? Why did you start your path? What’s the prize? The consequence? Is it worth it? I bet it is, you wouldn’t be there if it wasn’t.
Worse problems will come. And I’m not being negative. Actually, I’m a very positive or constructive person. I’m just trying to share my way of being strong enough to get over everything. Harshness makes you strong. Wise.
It’s OK to be sad or depressed. Feel it, let it freeze your veins. Hate, let free your anger, cry and break something (if possible, not in another’s head) and then move on. Do not repress, do not keep resentment. Move, move, move. Life is terribly short…
Make the most of it and spread all love you can. The rest, the rest…. all shadows.
