Sometimes life can be confusing and the easiest thing for us to do is make up a story in our head of what has happened.
But, we have to catch ourselves.
We can’t assume we know. We can’t assume we have the answers. We can’t cloud our minds with our imagined stories of what may have occurred.
We can only control our reaction to the situation, any situation, and keep a calm head about it. It doesn’t mean we can’t be nervous, anxious, or confused.
Those are real human emotions and we must recognize these feelings are important to have but we should counterbalance them by posing a simple question.
“Is it true?”
If we can be honest with ourselves we may find that the truth doesn’t align with how we are perceiving the situation. Our stories become fantasies and make-believe,
It opens us up to letting those feelings subside and no longer control us.
In this case, the truth can set us free.
