when something takes us out of balance, literally or metaphorically, how do we establish a new balance? Has it ever happened to you, when one year you have 28 days and another 29?
Cognitive flexibility is something I read about, and it seems very appropriate to develop a new sense of balance and resilience.
After having some vertigo, I was told it is important to walk out and to use my brain to a new sense of balance. It’s probably the same when something is disturbing our mental or emotional balance.
A new one needs to be established and a flexibility in the way we see things is important.
I was talking to a friend who is looking for the love of her life during the pandemic. She mentions that she is decided to meet someone, but she excludes any form of online communication. In my eyes, this is a bit restrictive.
But I realise, that I am equally set in my ways, when someone else points out a way of action I don’t approve.
I might be more open in one respect, and closed and fixed in another.
But if we change everything, will we have principles after all? A strong sense of self?
Probably if we dissociate strong from fixed.
Strong is flexible. Strong is not afraid to mutate and to change.
I seem to believe that not many people will understand me and accept my lifestyle and goals.
Is this actually true?
Have I formulated and communicated what I want and believe to other people or spent more time hiding it to fit in?
That is something to consider 🙂
