TIP #37: Remember that you are bigger than your problems

Do you remember that problem for which you didn’t sleep for three days? Most likely the answer is not.
We tend to get problems and feel so little, it feels like the world it is going to end and this is the problem that will finally get rid of us.
The reality is that you are bigger than your problems and you need to remember that to yourself constantly. The reason is simple, your friends will tell you that and you won’t listen, so you need to remind it to yourself, so when the problem arrives you are ready and open to listen.
We all have problems, big and important ones. Most of them, really will not matter. Instead of work to get out of the problem, we paralyze and worry.
Most of the problems you have had in the last ten years had been fixed and resolved, and life had move on. Even most of them you don’t even remember them.
Next time the big problem knocks on your door, stop and think what are you doing to continue moving on, to remember that you can also get throw this, and that eventually this will also be part of the past.
I understand not all problems are like that, there are some that aren’t like that. Most people never got those.
i.e. One of my best friends had an accident when he was between high school and college. The result of the accident leave him on a wheel chair for life and paralyzed from the waist down. That’s a problem. For him, was an opportunity to be better. Today he is happily married to an amazing woman. When I get into the feeling that I may not be able to get out of the problem, is my friend the one that inspire me, and I am grateful every day to be able to call him my friend.
