My life is full of crisis, and I’m sure yours is too. Crises come in many shapes and forms from the insignificant to earth shattering. My life is full of the latter at this point. The trick is to find what works to help you cope with the stress, and reminding yourself that this is not the end of the world. It is a turning point, a chance to grow and learn, an opportunity to see the Divine work miracles that you didn’t know could happen. It is a place where faith and belief flourishes – it is a place where you learn who your real friends are. I have two examples, one is my soulmate – learning to live in a soulmate relationship has pits and hills all throughout. The other is having children with mental or developmental issues. Each day is different, sometimes there are small crises moment by moment, and some days are crisis free.
So, the question is, where do you go for support? Oddly enough, the people I am in crisis with. Most of the time, the people you love the most are the people who are either going through the crisis with you, or are your support through the crisis. But sometimes when everyone is in crisis we need to look to outside sources. The best suggestion I have is to have the Crisis Hot Line number on hand, as well as, other emergency hotline numbers next to your phone or loaded into your smart phone. Crisis is scary and creates a great deal of anxiety use all the resources you have in your community, many are free.
