8 Things To Remember When Everything Goes Wrong
Ask "what if" or "why me" without also reminding yourself of what's possible and what makes you strong. Focus on others' opinions, because they're a reflection of the speaker, not you. Worry about who you are or are not impressing. Accept, accept, accept. Stick to the present. Rather than worrying about the future or dwelling on the past, focus on what is actually happening now and what is actually in your power to do now.
Focus on realistic expectations for yourself and the situation. Differentiate what you can and what you cannot change. Take one step, then another. Even if they're just baby steps, keep moving. Rather than focusing on the worst case, think instead of what else is possible.
Look for the lesson. Challenging situations can often teach us what we have left to learn. Keep a positive attitude by remaining focused on solutions, skills, and strengths. Start small. Spend time with the people who support you. Appreciate the things going well, savor simple pleasures, and try to find the hidden gifts in the difficult times. Take care of yourself. Treat yourself with love and respect. Rejuvenate rather than simply tuning out or unplugging.
Ask for help sooner rather than later. Consult or get a second opinion. Take the steps you need to keep working toward what you want in life. Sometimes we are too close to a situation to see it for what it is. Try looking at the situation from someone else's point of view. Give it the test of time. Ask yourself if this will mean the same thing in one, five, or 10 years. Look at the situation as a relatively short segment in the timeline of your life. Move, your body that is.
