Updated: C-PTSD:—-Challenges or Problems?— Makes a huge difference which one we choose!!!!!

A. Sinochkin – Beer Adorer

The problem is not that there are problems. The problem is expecting otherwise and thinking that having problems is a problem.
Theodore Rubin
Life is thickly sown with thorns, and I know no other remedy than to pass quickly through them. The longer we dwell on our misfortunes, the greater is their power to harm us.”

“The gem cannot be polished without friction, nor man perfected without trials.”
Life is a series of challenges for all of us. Problems are read as abnormal, and something we need to eliminate from life to be happy. this leads us toward a destination without problems, that we think is happiness.
Wonder if these so called problems are just part of every human journey. In my opinion, life challenges all of us within our vulnerable space constantly.
We believe some people have it made but that is delusion. We all are human and will die.
The issue is that some let problems keep them from living life. We do not have to escape, run away or complain about our predicament. It is not a sign of weakness to have big problems.
Accepting these challenges as normal changes life. We do not look to escape or change but surrender and thrive with action. Action overcomes all of this thought.
SO ACT NOW!!!!!!!!

    The day that problems end will be the day of our last breath. Most problems have a path to solution. The other side is so glorious and full of joy and spirit and love.

    The challenge in the beginning was to focus. My mind was racing beyond control. I first visualized a white sheet of paper. When thoughts came, I just let them go and focused again on what was before me. This was difficult, but I still practiced. As I read more about the Breathing Track, it made me realize the by tracing it physically using my finger in the modified figure 8 pattern, it not only helped my focus/concentration but it also helped regulate my breath. There were longer periods of mindfulness. The result was an invisible barrier to negative thoughts –so when I experienced a situation or event that was stressful, –I did not push it away, it but now let it flow through me, and let it go. In the past I would play it over and over again increasing cortisol and anxiety. I find myself doing mini sessions throughout the day, tracing the breathing track for even for 5 minutes gives me a sense of peace. Simple easy and should be a part of your daily routine.

  4. Thanks for sharing

  5. Knowing there is a problem is the start of the solution.

  6. 🙂 and asking the question is the beginning of the answer you seek, too.
