Without going into details, I learned two lessons last night; things are not as bad as they appear and there is light at the end of the tunnel. By any standards, my night was laughable, but in the moment I made my situation grandiose and disproportionate to reality ; a constant theme in my life. Things actually turned out wonderful, yet I expected the worst. How often this concept has been present in my life; “waiting for the other shoe to drop”, as it were. Failing to resign to fact that maybe, just MAYBE, I might possibly be making something out of nothing. In hindsight, I am able to laugh at these events that seemed so intense at the time. Things have definitely improved; I have moments of fear and doubt (most people do from one degree to another) , but fail to let these things control me. They cannot, unless I bestow them that power. I have had many events transpire throughout the course of my life that, at the time, seemed monumental yet, if examined closely, have been surmountable and wholly overreacted to on my part. Life is not so serious; things are not so bad. Trust that I have had MAJORLY negative situations both happen to me and in which I played a large role. Life is not so intense as we make it , as long as its not permissed .
