On coping mechanisms and approaches

We often find ourselves in a state of mind we wish we were free of, we can think RIGHT NOW let me not be in this state, but perhaps we are meant to be learning and understanding something from that present difficulty.

It is a process one goes through up to our whole lives, and it is my opinion that it is a part of who we are.

If all we were was positive, we'd be like the sun, too bright for anyone to look at for more than a second, our trials and difficulties allow us to be visible and pleasant to look and think about.

The switcheroo, when we find ourselves in these times, what are we presently doing? Is it contributing to our present state.

Are we feeling we should do something we aren't looking forward to?

If so, let us first do something we want to do, something not necessarily fun in the classical sense but will provide a deeper awareness of life and all it's troubles, so we can appreciate the human experience more.

There is so much to learn and enjoy, we are full of opportunities for things to explore and derive nourishment from, but we can feel dull inside and not feel like any of it would help. We need to be surprised by joy in those times, which so happens to be the name of CS Lewis' book about his wife who he loved enormously.

A blessing in disguise is a treat.
