Until now, you are suffering from lots of uncertainties due to the pandemic situation. Maybe you are still jobless and can’t sustain your needs financially. Or perhaps you are having trouble getting things done because of the restrictions you need to follow. Maybe you thought you could go back to the way it was before and freely spend your life without a hassle. Sadly, that is impossible. Honestly, the world is changing, and all you have to do is adapt to it. There is no way you can survive the whole struggle of this global crisis if you don’t open yourself to the world’s “new normal.”
The In Denial
To be honest, it is okay to convince yourself that things will be okay in the end. That is true. Sooner or later, everything around you will become part of history. You will come to a point where you can already laugh about the situation and openly tell the story to the next generation. But daydreaming about reaching the good things right at this moment is not an ideal way of handling this crisis. Convincing yourself that you are emotionally and mentally okay is not helpful at all. You can argue with me about that. But my point is when you fool yourself and think that you are perfectly strong enough to handle the pressure, you are only making it worst for your overall health.
It is not like I am trying to discourage you from becoming emotionally and mentally positive. Honestly, you have to be. What I’m trying to imply is that you need to be aware of your weaknesses. You shouldn’t ignore them. You must accept that there are things you can’t control, not even your emotional and mental state. You should avoid confusing yourself and think that you are okay because you are not. Admit that you also feel anxious and stress and that you somehow need help.
You see, the problem of most people is that they cannot stay in the middle. Some are too afraid to face the reality of the pandemic situation, while others may be like you who think that they can confidently survive without putting up an effort. I am not saying that you are on the negative side. However, if you can’t see the problem of being overly confident, then you will end up ignoring “change.” You will become too attached to your reality that you will soon fail to accept that adjustments can make a big difference.
Change In Perspective
All it takes is one idea on how to transform the way you see the situation. These ideas may sound simple, but they are so powerful in terms of the impacts and shifts in can provide in your life. Remember, mental clarity is not about genetics; it is about habits. Acknowledging your weak points is not going to bring you down. In fact, recognizing your unwanted mental and emotional aspects can lead to the development of a better trait. It makes your rethink how you structure your life, your decisions, as well as your ability to care for yourself. Changing your perspective about everything will make you understand the flow of the changing world.
All changes are hard to do at first, and sometimes, it gets messy in the middle of the process. But once you master the necessary habits you need to keep your emotional and mental state healthy, it becomes fulfilling in the end. Just think about this: If the struggle is not complicated and hard at first, you can never consider it a “change.”
