What To Do Whenever You Feel Your World is Crashing Down

 

Life
Sometimes life delivers an unexpected turn of events, the shock can make us question if we have been bad or what we did wrong . We can feel greatly saddened when we’ve invested so much of ourselves into something that fails to materialise.
Grief and loss are often experienced at these difficult times in life and then we feel our world has come crashing down, taking our future plans, hopes and dreams with it.
Did you miss out on being pregnant for another month and you hear ‘you’re still very young, you have plenty of time, Or  comments like, ‘there are plenty more fish in the sea’ when our latest relationship ends.

Here are ways you can cope when we’re experiencing such a sense of loss?

1. Keep your own counsel. Avoid comparing yourself to others. Your feelings, challenges and situation is very different to theirs. Accept that others may not be as supportive as you’d like them to be, possibly through no fault of their own. It can be disappointing, tough to tolerate, but there’s little we can do when they simply don’t understand.

2. Listening to others This can bring its own stress, prompting us to make inappropriate decisions sometimes. Listening to others can help us move our thoughts along, but at the end of the day it’s your life. They’re not as invested in the outcome as you are.

3. Choose who you share your story with. Be cautious at exposing too much of yourself and your feelings at to others. It’s easy to absorb much of other people’s comments, advice and input, but question, would they really do what they so freely advise you to do if they were in your shoes!

4. Check your perspective, how are you feeling? Some days are more positive than others, those others we take everything personally. When you’re aware of how much you can influence each situation you can be more in control of your responses.

5. Consider therapy if you suspect you have a long-standing unresolved issues. Getting help and working with a professional who is skilled at providing the right support is a positive way to learn to pick yourself up and then move forward.

6. Take the focus away from yourself. share the lessons learned, and be supportive of others. When you help others it often helps you too. Get involved and recognise your own strength and growth.

Appreciate that things take their own time but resolution will eventually come to pass.

7. outside help Online forums and discussion groups can connect you with people with similar stories,  Knowing you’re not on your own can in itself provide reassurance and comfort.

Appreciate that things take their own time but resolution will eventually come to pass.
