As we begin to live our lives, emotional stability is something that we will constantly have to work at.
Unfortunately along life’s path, the hurdles we face are inevitable; they’re not something we can always plan for and are often hard to comprehend and overcome, so they’re also inevitable. Sometimes it’s our inability to be able to deal with these hurdles that leave us in a position where we are less than able to cope emotionally.
How easy is it to get angry when we look back on our most difficult experiences? Emotionally we don’t always know how to come to terms with what we deal with and getting angry is all part of that process. Some of us will block out our experiences that we feel are too painful to contemplate, whilst others will do their best to deal with what they’ve been through.
Unfortunately as we try to move on with our lives we don’t always feel any better about our experiences. As other people’s lives continue they forget what we sometimes have to continue to deal with. When the doors are closed we’re still picking up the pieces. It’s never easy blocking out an experience completely, but blocking out an experience doesn’t help us come to terms with it. Our Skeletons will always be there until we deal with them.
There still isn’t a day go by that I don’t continue to work on or find a level of acceptance and understanding on what I have to deal with. I always work on the premise that the things I can change I change and the things I can’t change I find an acceptance on so that I’m okay and can move forward.
I use the same philosophy for everything in my life, regardless of what I’m dealing with.
