Life Coach Session: Dealing with twenty-four hours a day
When we woke up each morning, our first goal would be to get through the day.
While there is a chance that wonderful things will happen during each cycle of twenty-four hours, there is also a chance that a lot of negative things will fall into your lap.
Not to mention the possibility of various natural catastrophes like earthquakes, tornadoes, and accidents that could happen at any time and seriously destroy your day.
How then do you respond when that occurs?
You either freak out or freeze.
Do you rage-cry in your locked bathroom?
I personally would spend the entire day sobbing in bed, or perhaps I won’t even get the opportunity?
While these coping strategies can seem consoling, they are not actually helpful.
You’ll eventually have to quit freaking out and start tackling your issues.
Whether you’re panicking, screaming, or shouting, or your blood pressure is increasing, it’s difficult to make decisions and solve problems.
The first thing you should do, therefore, is to calm it down.
We’ve all been there.
That’s just the way life is.
Most of us could learn to deal with it better.
A friend may also tell you, “Don’t worry, everything will be okay,” or even worse, “Oh, it’s not so bad,” in the midst of a crisis.
Lastly, whether we like it or not, it is up to us to deal with reality.
The truth may be that everything will be okay at times.
You’ll get through it and fight back.
Yet, it might not always.
You have to deal with the consequences of the process.
But, it is not the end of the world that tomorrow will be another day.
Sometimes you might be overreacting, and things are really not that bad.
You’ve created an imaginary catastrophe based on your past and allowed it to feed your fear.
You will need to manage your anxiety first in that situation.
But in other instances, the situation is far worse than you anticipated.
You might be understating as if everything is okay.
In certain instances, you must first knock yourself out and deal with reality.
You’ll have to accept that it’s alright to not be okay.
Accept, get through, and move on to another day.
