Throughout our life we have to cope with many problems. Some of these problems are severe, others seem (in hindsight) quite insignificant. But we managed to cope and move on by utilising various tools at our disposal. Good memories of your past life can really help you overcome the fear of your current situation.
It might be that you shared your problem with a loved one and the very act of talking about it helped. Perhaps in time, the problem simply seemed less important than it did initially. Maybe you just used your mind to force yourself to be strong and resilient. You may even have filled your life with something more important and concentrated on that.
When you remember these problems and how you coped, do not dwell on the unpleasantness of what the problem was, but rather on how you coped (the positive result). Concentrate on these memories and you may be able to move on more quickly when facing your current problem.
Remember, being positive is a strong and powerful healing tool. Good memories of your past help us to be positive. I can share with you lots of examples of how I remained positive during a ‘double whammy’ that I experienced.
TIPS AND HINTS
Make a list (journal) of all the problems that you can remember from childhood onwards. The act of writing and remembering can be helpful. But keep reading the more significant ones and remembering how you coped and won!
