A crisis either gets fixed or we learn how to live with it.
No matter how bad it is, the problem will get resolved.
The real problem is the stress, anxiety, upheaval, self-doubt, hurt feelings and outright fear that consume us in the meantime even though we know the two possible outcomes.
Don’t panic – toughen up.
Ask yourself what is the worst that can happen because it rarely does.
Take a pad; write your fears in one column and the facts in the other. Facts trump emotions in solving problems.
Avoid people who make you feel more stressed, insecure, less confident or hurt.
Seek out people who see life with positivity to make you stronger and less anxious.
No one gets to avoid major problems.
But the problem is not likely to get you, the lack of self-care while dealing with it will.
