What if I told you that that the secret to getting better answers in our life is to stop forcing them? We all want to find answers, so much so that we often don’t realize the pressure we put on an immediate and set outcome in a hope to have everything squared away into a tidy box. Those boxes end up giving us more stress because they are created with cognitive distortions, or filters of how we see and interact with the world. These filters strip a balanced perspective and lead us towards negative thoughts and feelings that influence us every day. Instead of being controlled by these filters, let’s push back against them and learn to live in the in-between, that place where we feel uncertain, vulnerable, but a place where hope can live too.
