When things go bad, when another person is reacting with hostility or indifference, when life just seems too confusing or too demanding…
Are you able to step back, analyze the situation and create a solution without feeling compromised?
Do you instead react with indifference, get angry or manipulative, or try harder to please without understanding the reason for the demands?
Do you feel overwhelmed and beaten, and just give in to despair and existential emptiness?
Do you know that it is this feeling of being compromised that can lead you, or even youth within your household, to seek comfort and sometimes get hooked on drugs (prescribed or bought), alcohol, fickle friendships, or more exciting distractions?
If you want to get out of a slump and practice good management or help a loved one do so, learn how to step back, analyze the situation and create a solution without feeling compromised.
It is in each person, how you, or they, deal with a reality that is always changing, always presenting new, unprecedented, or even undesirable conditions. Bad things WILL happen. A loving spouse WILL be dissatisfied. Friends may NOT always be engaging or supportive. That’s life.
Great capacity and flexibility is within every human being. We are all born with reactive capabilities. We develop understanding… if we are guided through the many facets of life that must be understood – the world, the people in it, our own ontological existence.
When, however, things change, anyone can be challenged outside of their range of understanding… until we can understand it. Until then, we react. When we have understanding, even impossible conditions will seem easy. But we must know how to reach for that understanding, build it for the new condition, and be prepared again to build it for the next presentation of even the same condition. It is easy. Let me show you.
I will not tell you what to do. I can’t. I will, however, guide you using a formula that will allow you to see yourself differently, see the world and other people objectively, and know how to confront tough challenges with your own authority.
This is an invitation to those who want to move forward with confidence, not just remove a habit or treat a condition in isolation.
