Feeling Out Of Control? Focus On What You Can Do!


The reality is that we are not actually in control of anything. We really have little control over what happens to us, but we do have the power to respond to the stuff that occurs and it’s how we deal with any given situation that counts. We also can’t control other people and the actions they take, but we can control how we respond to them and how we feel about the situation. Things can seem fine one moment, but can change in a flash without any prior warning. Often our natural instinct is to resist. However, this can make it a lot harder and the easier option of going with the flow could be better for us both emotionally and physically. You really can’t change what is going to happen. In the latest article from Becoming Aware, we look at questions you should ask yourself and what you can do if you feel out of control.

Questions you should ask yourself to start moving forwards

· What exactly is the issue?

· What limitations does the situation place on you?

· What can’t you do?

· How do you really feel?

It may seem obvious but the first question involves defining what the actual issue or problem is and once this has been established, try not to lose yourself in it. There are some things that you just can’t do anything about at all and dwelling on this will not help you to come to a solution of what you need to do to make a difference.
