An uphill struggle

Life ticks over but can be an uphill struggle sometimes, particularly in times of trauma, or a crisis. We will react differently in those times, but we may react better when we assess, tackle and deal with things as soon as they arise.

Others, however may completely fold under the pressure or may need a little longer to deal with their issues, particularly if the issue they’re dealing with seems to be out of their depth, or is a little daunting.

In those circumstances, it would be easy for mental blocks to form, stopping us from getting past that point of seeing solutions to our problems clearly. We must stand back so that we can begin to assess our issue objectively.

It becomes even more difficult when someone close seems to act well under pressure and we’re struggling. Sadly, issues can often seem like an uphill struggle, particularly if we’re dealing with more than one issue.

  1. Some people hide from their trauma. I think the best way to deal with it, is like you have. Be open and get it out.

    Hiding only prolongs the suffering and pain we feel. Being open to others and getting help, helps a lot I think.

    You and your family have been through a huge ordeal and I’m glad it’s starting to resolve some for you. Keep on, keeping on!

    1. Thanks Lisa. I agree with you. I find talking halves my concern or worry.

      I am relieved that we are finally coming through our two year ordeal. We’re slowing reaching a conclusion. I’m looking forward to a new, but different beginning.

      It’s been tough on all of us.

  2. From my experience of dealing with trauma, the air of despondency that usually surrounds trauma clears and is replaced with an air of positivity.
