As we live our lives, emotional stability is something that we constantly have to work at. Hurdles become inevitable. They’re not something we can always plan for and are often hard to comprehend and overcome.
It is our inability to deal with hurdles that will leave us in a position where we are less than able to cope emotionally. How easy it would be to get angry at ourselves. Sadly, we won’t always know how to come to terms with what we deal with and being angry is often part of that process. Some of us may choose to block out our experiences, others may simply do their best to deal with what they have to deal with.
Also, as we try to move on with our lives, we may not always feel any better about our experiences. As other people’s lives continue to tick over, they forget what we deal with, particularly when it comes to a disability. As their lives continue, we will still have to pick up the pieces. Blocking things out doesn’t help us deal with or come to terms with our experiences.
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 had to and continue to deal with in my life. I tend to work on the premise and it works for me that the things I can change I will set to change and the things I can’t change, I will find an acceptance on so that I’m okay and can move forward.
I use the same philosophy for everything, regardless of what I’m dealing with.
