Because we sometimes have to deal with the unknown, life can be scary if we stopped to think about it long enough. My struggles with my health is the one thing that scares me the most.
I think if we all stopped to think about life and what it really means, we’d find so many things that we find scary. I find that when I don’t consciously think about what I have to deal with, I cope better with my daily routine, but can still get caught out with my health.
Of course when I stop to think about where I’ve come from with my life, I can see how far I’ve come and am comforted by that, but there is still a part of me that is concerned for how my life will turn out in say 10 to 15 years on what I deal with now and what I may have to deal with.
I tend to fair better when I know what I may have to deal with. We take things and life for granted. It’s the nature of the human condition. We have our health, we have a life and never stop to think about how and what it all really means to us. If we did we’d come in with a different attitude and that would help us cope better.
