When Everything Seems to be Falling Apart

by Tesle Telan

No matter what you’re going through right now, always remember that when you think life is falling apart, it’s usually falling together in disguise. When challenges and difficulties arise, it may feel like life is throwing so much than what you can handle but take a step back and realize that when you’re down, there’s no other way but through the difficulties.

When it feels like your whole world is falling apart STOP, ASSESS, and EVALUATE.

All the pain and struggles are temporary. Whatever it is that you are going through right now, remember that the pain is temporary. It can’t hurt forever, even if it hurts for a long time. If you are able to remember or recall the time when it didn’t hurt or when it wasn’t difficult, then you’ll surely be able to handle things easily instead of feeling overwhelmed.

Filter your vibe and energy. It is easy to get sucked into someone else’s problems and it can sometimes bring you down too. Learning how to filter the vibe and energy you’re getting is important.

Worry less. Worrying only causes anxiety and makes focusing on what needs to be done way harder. If you find yourself worrying over something, try to shift your focus on the steps that need to be taken to fix whatever problem or challenge has arisen.

Practice gratitude. When things are falling apart, it can be hard to see all things in your life that aren’t going wrong. Take a moment to recall the things in your life that are stable and give you joy. Being able to think positively will help you put your problems into perspective. Take a step back and reevaluate your situation.

Keep moving forward. When things are falling apart, the only direction to go is to move forward. Even when it feels impossible, you need to remember that it is okay to just keep trying and keep moving forward. Things will be better when it’s time for them to get better.

Try discussing things with your partner, your family, a therapist or a life coach. Life can be tough but you are stronger than the challenges that life throws at you. Things will get better sooner than you think.
