We might think that we can’t control ourselves or our feelings when things get overwhelming, but we can – and we do. Look at all the children in the world that suffer through the most horrendous stuff; how do they survive?
They go to another place in their heads; a place where everything is beautiful and alright. Where there is play and music and colours, where nothing hurts.
There are millions of people out there in the world, suffering through things we can hardly acknowledge for the horror it brings, and they are doing it all the time: They change their mind-set.
You did it when you were a child, that’s how you got through all those difficult or awful times. And you always survived, didn’t you? I did. So next time when your mind is a black cave of horrors and your heart is filled with dread; go somewhere else, a place where you feel joy, real or imagined, and fill your mind with wondrous pictures. Trust me, you will feel better and sometimes this is when you get the best solutions.
