When things don’t work out as planned or hoped for a frequent reaction is to assume that there is nothing that can be done about it.
It’s the perception of depending on external factors and the search for control. Which is all about the desire to feel safe and empowered.
But, as everything is connected, we are living in a net of natural dependencies leading to tensions.
Logic won’t help for long in this. It allows to understand the circumstances but doesn’t provide any means to react when the sense of powerlessness passes by.
Powerlessness is one of many feelings.
And dealing with feelings requires practice. There is no one answer for all.
But it does start with using the moment between stimulus and response to decide on the next step.
