No one said life was going to be easy. Sometimes it is and sometimes it isn’t. Yet we all go through difficult and upsetting situations.
For years I was highly reactive to anything that happened in my life and my reactions usually made them more difficult. Yes we all hear and process things differently, yet what we don’t do is step back, pause, process and breathe before we react.
Every situation we deal with throughout our lives can be and should be handled with care. Getting angry never fixes anything and neither does stressing on it. When we step back we can look at the situation and deal with it accordingly. When we react we get stuck on stupid and rarely defuse anything.
I’ve learned that if we stop and process before we react, anger and frustration rarely happen. Yet most of us react automatically and usually the outcome isn’t good. We wind up angry or frustrated and instead of moving on we get stuck or start second guessing ourselves and wind up getting what I call the f### its.
Automatically reacting to a difficult situation never has the outcome we’d like because most of the time our reaction makes it worse. I have learned that if I can control it then don’t stress about it and if I can’t control it stressing or reacting to it won’t change it so why bother.
It’s not easy to stop, drop and roll so to speak, yet when we can step back, pause and process, the outcome is almost always better and what’s best for all involved.
Take time to process all situations before you react because it doesn’t matter what the situation is… What matters is how you react to it!
Have a beautiful day world!
