The human mind is such that when we have a bad experience we quicky jump to the conclusion that everything is bad.
However this may not be true. My therapist told me the same thing today and he worded it beautifully:
“Look at how much you have achieved amidst the Tsunami”
I do acknowledge that it is true. I have showed massive resiliency even in the face of adversity. Even though each time I felt like I was done and I could no longer go on but I stood back up and tried things a little differently each time.
The point of this post is to save yourself from falling into the everything is bad trap. Acknowledge the good things that happen to you despite all that goes wrong. Find the meaning in your encounters because they happen for a reason. Nothing is accidental.
