How to Remain Secured Despite the Uncertainty
Maan de Vera
The world is spinning in a really violent phase right now. Bad news are popping left and right. We all just need a little assurance to help us get by, but even that is so scarce that we find ourselves anxious about pretty much everything. Yes, you aren’t alone. We may live in an era that puts Black Mirror to shame, but there are still things that you can do to stay sane.
Here’s how you can remain secured despite the uncertainty:
1. Find confidence within yourself.
This isn’t the first time that you’re not completely sure of what’s to come. You’ve doubted many times in your life before, yet you’ve managed to surpass all of them. Sometimes, we forget to give ourselves the credit we deserve and forget just how strong we really are.
2. Learn to let go.
Everything that you have -- the things you like and the things you don’t are all fleeting. Be at peace with the fact that you’ll lose everything at one point because that’s the truth. Clinging hard unto something will only leave cuts and bruises in your hands.
3. Take it all in.
Since everything is temporary, you owe it to yourself to breathe in every single second of your existence. Try your best to focus on what’s happening right now because at the end of the day, that’s all we’ll ever have -- a series of current moments.
There are so many things that we can’t control. That sucks, right? But remember that you always have full authority on your perspective and mindset.
