WHY CAN’T I OPEN THE FILE? WHY WON’T IT DOWNLOAD? WHY CAN’T I SEND IT? WHY CAN’T I VIEW IT? WHY CAN’T I TYPE IN IT? WHY? WHY? WHY? When the simplest acts result in the greatest frustration you are left feeling exhausted, right? All you can do is put your head in your hands and shake your head thinking ‘I just can’t deal with this right now’. You have no idea what the problem is. You have no one beside you to ask. You never had to deal with these things in the past. But all of a sudden everything is your responsibility since your divorce. You have enough on your plate. A family to keep together, finances to get in order, online documents to fill out. People demanding this, demanding that, and all you want to do is hide under the duvet and pretend the world doesn’t exist. What should be simple becomes a mammoth task and everything suddenly seems impossible.
One simple thing can escalate as the negative feeling starts feeding all of your other problems. And soon you feel surrounded by problems, and not solutions. You need to take time out. You need to sit back, breathe, and break things down into bite size pieces. One bite at a time. And you need to know you’re not alone. During times of troubled waters, it is so much easier to do nothing and just let the world go by. But there are people out there that can help; that care; that understand and will listen. Always. You just need to ask. And asking isn’t failure. Asking is strength. Asking is acknowledging you are on a journey of discovery your whole life and that there is ALWAYS something new to learn. Asking is exciting because it educates and shines a light on so much more than you realise. And we can never ever know too much! Grab the opportunity to learn new things with both hands and open a new door to your life.
