Socks

17 Dec

Nobody gets a life constantly filled with fun and good times. We all have wonderful moments we cherish that buoy us up and bring great happiness, but those times don’t last forever. Periods of distress and trouble eventually arrive, and we may have to find our way through complex and difficult developments. It’s natural to feel unsettled when our world is in flux and things are going wrong. We might be overwhelmed and unsure, and we may struggle with depression and anxiety as we navigate through whatever we’re facing. When we don’t feel our best and are beset by worry and concern, it can be hard to be around others who are happy and having fun. They may try to cheer us up by telling us our situation isn’t “that bad” or in other ways try to divert us from the issue. If we’re feeling open to encouragement, that may help but we all manage things our own unique way, and there may be times when we wish all the cheerleaders around us would just put a sock in it and go away. We may prefer to face our demons alone and on our own, and being around others who aren’t suffering may be more than we want to face. We’re entitled to manage our lives our own way, and don’t need agreement or permission to check out for a while. We’ve been successful in managing many difficult situations and solving complex problems, and we will be successful again. Even if the road ahead is dark and unclear, we can trust ourselves to find the answers we need and be confident of success. Nothing is too difficult for us to manage or too hard to overcome. We are powerful and wise, and will find the way forward.

When we’re going through hard times, it’s easy to feel isolated and alone. Nobody really knows what’s happening inside our heads but us, and if the situation is personal or intensely private, we may not be interested in sharing it with others. We can keep the situation to ourselves, and take the time we need to process it clearly to find the way ahead. Or we can reach out to someone we trust, share our concerns, and listen to any advice they offer. By managing the issue in ways that make us comfortable and confident, we will find our way through, and resolve it successfully.

There is no one perfect way to handle difficult problems. Each is unique and specific to its own parameters. What works in one situation, may not apply in another. There are endless ways to navigate through any problem. We are intelligent and capable, and already possess everything we need to prevail. We can seek the answers desired, confident they will arise when needed. Nothing can hold us in place indefinitely, and we will always, every single time, find the road ahead.

Today if you’re facing a difficult challenge, take the time you need to process everything objectively and find the road ahead. Every answer you seek is there for you. You are amazing and powerful, and nothing can keep you from success. Trust yourself. Step ahead with confidence. The road is there for you, you will find it, and you will win.
