The crisis that we are facing right now might seem to be consuming our entire life. It probably is not but it sure does appear that way if you are going through it. When that happens, we tend to stop thinking rationally and that is where our emotions can get the better of us. In times like this, it is more important than ever to yank yourself out of that endless downward spiral to despair and put things into perspective. What is it exactly that you are going through? What will this result? What are the ways that this can go? How will this matter in the long run? What is it that you want? How do you win? When you can honestly answer these questions, you will have taken control of the situation and not the other way round. Most people feel helpless because they allow the situation to take charge of them. Remember, you can decide if the crisis will last forever or not.
