Coping with chaos

It is often the case that when our life is thrown into chaos, we somehow manage to find ideas to help us work through it.

When we look at the situation objectively, when we stand back we will begin to see and understand more of what we need to do to transform our ideas into possibilities. It’s not always easy to know which thoughts or ideas will work but drawing on our experiences and using our intuition will usually help us draw the necessary conclusions.

Feelings usually associated with chaos, such as stress and anxiety, will slowly begin to dissipate as we become more skillful at handling situations. But we must make sure we continue to stay healthy through the process.

Once we take the time to stand back, assess and observe how we might react better, we will cope better. But chaos and change are both necessary, and if utilised positively, can help us learn how to manage our lives successfully.

The more we regard things as easy, the less we will cope when it comes to facing new chaotic situations. But we can never really know what it’s like until we’re there.

  1. I tend to clam up when chaos erupts. Then I get over it and face the problem head on and it either works out or it doesn’t.

    If it doesn’t I worry about it uselessly until things work out for better or worse. It wares me out sometimes so I need to learn to handle chaos better.

    1. Again Lisa… I think you’re probably not alone on this one either. I would try not to worry needlessly though, because that will make you clam up even more.

      Whether you worry or not, the outcome will be the same; there would be no point to the worrying in the first place. It will just make you ill.
