Coping in Crisis
Crisis occurs in different forms daily. Whether you are in carline and your child proclaims his backpack is still home with all of his homework OR you get diagnosed with a debilitating disease at your Dr.'s appointment. A crisis has occurred in your life.
At the moment a crisis occurs our immediate reaction tends to be negative. We pout, we scream, we cry. When do we realize that this negative reaction isn't solving our problem? It's not getting the backpack to school and it's not staving off our diagnosis. In fact, it's sucking the life out of us and anyone around us.
Energy is a precious commodity to us and everyone we come into contact with. When we spend so much of our energy being angry or stuck in grief we rob ourselves of the energy we need to pick ourselves up and move on past the crisis. We deplete the resource we need most to solve our problem.
I used to get stuck in the crisis. I spent years blaming my pain on a car accident caused by an 80 year old man who shouldn't have been driving. (That's not to say all 80 year olds are incapable of operating a vehicle!) I was so stuck on my rant of why this shouldn't have happened and my "woe is me" attitude that I never healed, and I never learned from my situation.
It wasn't until I let go of the anger and grief of my situation that I was able to move past it and start healing. I now look at that accident as a life changing opportunity that I waited a long time to acknowledge, accept, and put to good use.
The years of physical, emotional, and medical treatments that came from that accident have armed me with what I needed to face my biggest challenges in life. I am smarter, stronger, wiser and capable of turning bad situations into positive life lessons full of hope for myself and for the people in my life.
Think about your crisis. Are you giving it too much control? Is it causing you to get stuck in a revolving door of defeat? What life lessons are you not learning because you are so focussed on the negative? Shift your perception and start healing. This too shall pass, and as recently quoted by my friend battling cancer, "Every little ting is gonna be alright!" (You must sing it as Bob Marley would!)
