There are plenty of nights where we find ourselves in the deepest of dreams; others, nightmares. Some nightmares are beautiful and others are outright disastrous. The Pessimist is being chased down while the Optimist is fighting with all the will he/she has. Sometimes these nightmares occur while we have our eyes wide open, making them all too real.
Sudden, negative situations can bring your morale low to the ground. These incidents can cripple you by way of deteriorating your mind from deep within. In these situations, two types of people emerge: the flyer and the fighter. The flyer is the type of person who, unfortunately, decides to disappear when situations get tough. The flyer prefers to not face their fears and would rather leave the problems behind…unsolved (there may be an advantage to this, however). On the other hand, the fighter prefers to face their fears and take the situation head on, in an attempt to abolish the harsh nightmare.
Life throws some serious situations at all of us, in various forms. We, have the choice to either fly or fight. I personally choose to fight every time I face a new nightmare. Whether sleeping or awake, the best practice for me is to assess the situation, create a solution catered to the problem and implement it right away. The difficulty isn’t attaining the solution; the difficulty lies in maintaining your patience & focus when facing the problem head on.
Take the time to cool down when something happens. Devour the nightmare by immediately making an attempt to understand what you are facing. Once you’ve understood the situation, calm and collectively, you’ll have the opportunity to plan actions towards ridding yourself of that nightmare. Some plans may take longer than others, but that is definitely better than flying away…only to have to face the problem in the future.
Ah, and don’t forget … always have a backup/contingency plan ready in case your initial plan doesn’t work out and never give up!
You got this!
