Do we turn the other cheek or run away when it comes to problems that we need to sort out, and do you begin to throw doubt on your abilities? We know what we need to deal with, but uncertainty stops us in our tracks.
But turning the other cheek, or running away doesn’t solve anything. Although issues can make us panic, it’s easy to see why those things can make us feel out of our depth and control. It’s a viscous circle.
We’re out of control, so it’s easy to lose sight, then we turn the other cheek in the hope that our issues will go away. But running away will only set us up to fail. Running magnifies we have a problem. Where we go, our problems go with us.
We can learn new strategies; we may even find new solutions in the process. Working through any process helps us find acceptance and change. We can’t run away from life or problems; we won’t emotionally grow; we must deal with both.
