Most of us have been there. We face issue after issue, roadblock after roadblock and still there is no sign of it slowing down.
Every day, we start to wake up and wonder “what will happen next?” It can be a very uncomfortable feeling and one that can leave us thinking that the world is against us.
When It Rains, It Pours
There seems to be a lot of truth to this phrase. Often when life gets us down, it has to kick us a few more times before we are shown the light.
We might start to feel singled out and that we must have done something terrible to deserve all of the bad events that have happened to us.
Lately, I have been feeling this way. So many things have not gone smoothly, and it can get you down and make you see life negatively.
I truly wonder why things happen so often in numbers rather than a single event, but I suppose that once we can get through this mountain, the sun will shine for a while, hopefully without interruptions! It’s like getting all of the bad out of the way, to make room for the good.
When I feel like everything is working against me, I pause and do the following:
- I write about what is happening in my life to let my feelings out. I also make sure to include what is going RIGHT in my life, so that I can see that not everything is working against me.
- I spend time in nature so that I can see the beauty and peace that surrounds me even when I cannot feel it inside.
- I cook or work on a craft. I do something that helps me feel more in “control” when I feel as though everything is chaotic.
Bad and good are normal parts of life. We can try ways to help with our feelings and also our perspective. I hope that these tips will come in handy the next time you feel your world has come crashing down.
