Do you ever feel like the problems or conflicts in your life are so huge that no one gets it?
I mean, when you compare your problems to someone else’s, you feel like they’ve got it so easy.
Your problems are so big they take over your life. And your mind. And your body. And your entire being.
Suddenly, you start feeling small. Unable to face the mountainous challenge.
Now imagine you were a giant with the same problem (a fun thought experiment). Picture it in your mind. You are a giant towering over the city.
How does the same problem feel now?
Pretty small I bet.
Think about all the challenges you have faced in your life so far. When you look back, they seem small in comparison. You faced them, and you overcame them.
Don’t make the problem big.
Be the bigger person.
When you encounter a challenging situation, imagine yourself as a giant facing it. Make the challenge so small, it seems trivial to think about it.
Then go tackle it.
