Today was a test of so many emotions for me. After already having an insane week who would think it just couldn't get any worse? Life was never meant to be easy. What makes it easy is our coping mechanism to chaos. How we handle things that seem out of our control, can at times, test our self control to its limits. I am a huge processor and always think about the events that are happening or had happened, and find logic or reason for said event to go the route it did.
Do we (those who feel they have complete control of emotions) truly ever keep from running into a train wreck?
I ran into mine and had a hell of a time pulling back out. Today was the day that everything seemed out of my control. I was concerned I wouldn't be able to pull back out, even after two lengthy phone calls.
I've read about how meditation can help, and have a family member who reminds me once in a while to focus on my breathing. If I feel out of sorts or disoriented then I find it easy to do the breathing. But when chaos finds its way in it's a whole new story.
When I see others having a rough day I do my best to try and put a smile on their face and will think up ways to get them to smile, even if just a little one. It's tough when it is yourself on the other end.
How do you cope? Do you meditate, and if so how do you get your brain to focus when the world seems to be against you? Have you had moments where you were the one needed a shoulder or someone with an open mind to talk to?
