The Solution Is Just Another Perspective Away
I’m sure we can all relate to feeling overwhelmed by a problem, that we can’t seem to find a solution to, and then someone comes along and offers simple advice that answers all our questions. Or we step away from the issue and another day in another state of being we come back to the problem and the answers just seems to be staring us right in the face.
Well that is because often times the solution is just another perspective away. More often than not the answer is not hugely complicated at all, it’s just we seem to be stuck with one way of looking at the problem, and because in that moment we don’t seem to get out of our perspective, it can feel like there is no answer, when there is, we’re just not seeing it right now, and that’s ok! It’s normal and human.
When we feel stuck it’s so important not to resort to negative self talk, feeling like a failure for not finding the answer, and instead remembering that the answer exists, we just need to try creative ways of gaining another perspective. This can be achieved through a walk in the park, a conversation with a friend, or even something completely non related to the issue like cooking a meal, doing a work out, listening to an interesting podcast or reading a book.
The answer may not come straight away, and that’s ok, most important of all, give yourself grace, patience, and feel comfort in knowing that you will figure it out, whether alone or with others. You got this.
