As People say, rocks, bends and barriers enhance the beauty of a flowing river, problems make our lives exciting.
But some can reply as you never know what I am going through until you walk in my shoes…
I don’t think there is anyone in this world who lives without at least having one problem. People have various problems based on multiple reasons. Some have financial problems, some have health issues, some have relationship issues and so and so. Regardless of how important the reasons for every matter are, we are suffering from them to certain extents in particular.
When we are struggling with any issue, we think that we are the ones who have the biggest problem in the world and we think how unlucky we are. That’s our normal thinking pattern. But, how many of us could be able to overcome our issues by thinking less or smaller about ourselves.
“The problem is not the problem. The problem is your attitude about the problem”
-Captain Jack Sparrow-
That is the actual problem. The way we see our issues or our attitudes towards our issues.
Let’s say I am struggling with some financial issues. I lost my job and I have to pay my bills. I don’t have much savings too. In this kind of situation, my first reaction would be panicking. Maybe I will have a panic attack too. Then I will think about what happened to me and what to do next. In this point, it is good to think about what to do next, without the tone of “oh my God, what am I gonna do next”
The point that I am trying to emphasize is, when you think to overcome your issue with a pessimistic mind, you will never see the right answers. You have to stop wallowing on your tragedy and you have to turn on your optimistic mindset before you start to seek solutions. Sometimes losing the current job could be a sign from the universe or God to change your divine life path. Maybe you are going to start a whole new life which was always meant to be. Now you can brainstorm your new career choices or you can be your own boss either meanwhile being grateful for what you have and what you are going to have/achieve.
We can apply this concept to every other issue with some alterations. If we have health issues and we are worried about it, then stop worrying and think about how many people in the world are suffering from incurable diseases and how many of them are living with the uncertainty of their lives. Among all those people, you are lucky since you know that you have time to enjoy your life with your loved ones.
What I am trying to say is, don’t let your issues control your mind. Once you realise that you have an issue regarding anything, you need to remind yourself that as a small life test that wants to make you successful. So always think that your problem as a challenge and you must know that every problem has a solution too. Therefore, don’t ever give up on finding the solution no matter how hard your situations are. Start believing that every problem comes with a solution. The reason that you haven’t found the solution yet is because you did not try your best yet to solve it.
The only way to ease your life is by seeing your problems with an open and positive mind. Make your problem a ladder to climb up a step in your life and not as a hammer that beat you down.
