When You’re In Transition: Being Patient and Accepting Uncertainty

When You’re In Transition: Being Patient and Accepting Uncertainty | ISO Mental Health & Wellness | Scoop.it
Transitions come with uncertainty, but if we rush to have everything figured out, we make a choice that's not right for us.

Julianna Bonola's curator insight, January 28, 6:26 PM

Transitions come in all shapes and sizes.  When we are faced with a reality check that leads us into a long transitional period, staying centred is difficult.  I recall my last major tranisitory period.  Life looked so bleake - no money, lots of bills and no one close enough to share what I was going through.  I just kept reminding myself that it was my choice to be where I was, and that time would pass and I would get through the subsequent changes.  I reminded myself of this every day until one day, I realised that I didn't need to remind myself that it was my choice,to feel okay about where I was.  It was around that time also, that the fogg lifted and I could see a future ahead of me.  Over time, I learned that change doesn't have to be scarry, it will always be there and there's no point in being afraid of it, because being afraid doesn't help.  In fact, being afraid makes it worse.  Relaxing into transition and being kind and gentle with yourself is the easiest and fastest way through any transition.  It can be done!  I'm living proof.  And, if I can do it, anyone can do it.

Tiny Wisdom: Your Pain Is Real | Tiny Buddha: Wisdom Quotes, Letting Go, Letting Happiness In | ISO Mental Health & Wellness | Scoop.it
One of the most frustrating things in the world is feeling something painful and having other people tell you that you shouldn’t be upset.

 

That it’s no big deal that relationship didn’t work out, or that opportunity didn’t pan out—that it’s all in your head, so you should let it go, suck it up, and move on.

For those of you wanting to truly understand mindfulness, this will help.  Catching yourself in that moment in time - in that pivot point moment allows us to choose a different way of responding to discomfort.

Allow Yourself to Feel | Heal Now and Forever

Allow Yourself to Feel | Heal Now and Forever | ISO Mental Health & Wellness | Scoop.it

One of the most powerful things you can do for healing is to allow yourself to feel. An unfelt, unresolved feeling, especially one we judge to be pathological can reek havoc on our emotions, our relationships, and our identity. We might not be feeling, but it feels like we are since we are suffering so badly. How would our lives be different if we just allowed ourselves to feel? “If you don’t start a feeling, you cannot take that feeling to an end,” says Women, Food, and God, author, Geneen Roth. If we don’t feel, we are cheating ourselves of the relief of finishing it. In a way, the feeling is chasing us, merely one step behind, keeping us moving, fighting, going in a perpetual state of stress since we cannot let down our guards lest it catch up.

Nothing can be more devastating than a relationship that does not materialize and that took years of your time, energy and emotions. You devoted yourself completely to it but it still failed. Now what?

 

Many people are resilient in nature and move on. But few accept it as a failure of their own and sulk. This gets even harder to come to terms with when your partner leaves you for some silly reason or for someone else. But it is done and you can not undo it. Now what?
