While things are a little hectic right now, we should be doing our best to keep in mind all the things we may have that others do not. Sure, this is a scary period we’re going through but we will get through it nonetheless.
Many of us are still blessed in the sense that we have roofs over our heads, food in our bellies, and water to drink. While some high demand items are flying off the shelves and people are panic buying to the point where some are having to make do with what they can find. If you’re reading this you are still alive and you will get through this. As things progress they’re likely to get worse before they get better but they will get better.
Thank whatever higher force you believe in for keeping things going and do your best to help the people around you as best you can. In times like this, while we cannot physically be together, we can still care for one another on some level. In a world where it feels like everything is going wrong and things are falling apart, remember the things listed below.
9 Things To Keep In Mind As The World ‘Falls Apart’:
1. Bad things happen and we cannot control that.
The things going on in the world right now are not something you could have seen coming. Bad things happen and there is nothing we can do about that. We can only work to get through them properly.
2. Each struggle pushes us further in life.
Each struggle we face in life pushes us more and more to where we need to be. We are headed somewhere in life and our path is going to cross with lots of painful things along the way. That’s just how it is.
3. The things we go through help us grow tremendously.
We grow through all the things we face and right now, you’re growing. You’re coming to terms with things you otherwise wouldn’t be able to and figuring out more than you might expect to. This will pass and when it does, you will be stronger for having experienced it.
4. Complaining will not help at all.
The more you complain during times like this the worse you’re going to feel. Complaining isn’t going to get you anywhere. Just make the most of the time before you.
5. Some people have less than you.
There are people in this world who do not have what you have. No, you can’t go do things you want to do right now but at least you are able to eat and drink properly. You may have worries and there are a lot of stressful things going on but if you take it day by day things will work out.
6. It’s okay to be scared.
While it might make you feel weak, there is nothing wrong with being afraid. We’re facing scary times and we’re all going to be a little scared. That doesn’t mean there is something wrong with you.
7. You are not alone.
You are not alone, while it might feel like it right now we’re all facing the same thing. There are people struggling just like you. You’re not the only one going through this.
8. Taking care of yourself is important.
Taking care of yourself in the worst moments will help you through them. Self-care might sometimes fall on the back burner but right now you shouldn’t let it. Do the things you need to do to make yourself feel better.
9. The people who matter will stick around.
The people who care about you will be there for you when you need them. Right now we are more connected than ever and those who matter the most are showing themselves properly. If someone isn’t bothering to check in, stop wasting your time.
