Imagine you had a few difficult years – your mother died, you lost your job and had to start over, you were sick for a while and as a result your economy isn’t the greatest. Because of all the hurdles you’ve been through, having to put out fires as opposed to doing what you love, you also don’t feel like you’re living life to the full. Yet. You’re just steadily working your way up. Because, of course, you’ve decided to look up and move forward.
Truth is, we all have rough patches in life. Sometimes it’s like Pandora’s box in the events department and even if some things go right, it seems like a lot of big things go wrong.
Which, of course, affects us. We will need time off to rest and heal, or possibly go somewhere new to get a different perspective on things. We might have periods before that when we’re irritable and miserable because we don’t figure it all out at first. It’s normal. The issue lies in that some people blame themselves for it, or get stuck in a negative state of mind because of it, or simply lose their confidence.
You’re not a disaster because something bad happened and you were temporarily crushed by it – the important thing is that you’re standing up again. How you perceive yourself in this situation and, thus, how you present yourself, is crucial.
You can say: These past three years have been like a shit storm and I was about as prepared for it as I would have been if some aliens just walked in the door. I had to learn to deal with so many new situations. It humbles you. It teaches you what you have to be grateful for.
