What Do You Do When Everything Is Going Wrong?

The job is stressful, your marriage is in turmoil, the kids are making terrible grades, and financial troubles abound. What do you do?

Turmoil will always abound in life. If you do not have problems, wait for a little while your turn is coming. It is not the turmoil to worry about, but it is how you handle it. How you let negative situations affect your attitude, marriage, work ethic, and family will leave effects long after troubled times have ended.

Often people let turmoil turn them bitter, cold, and depressing. They turn sarcastic, hard to work with, depressing to visit with or be around, negative to be in a relationship, and leave a negative impact on their children for their entire life. They are often miserable being in their own body.

What a miserable way to live. Why would you want to live that way? Why put yourself, your partner, children, or coworkers through that misery? I do not want to! I choose joy and happiness! Have I been through turmoil? Yes, many times! The secret to getting through it? I kept my attitude straight even though some days I had to self-talks in the bathroom mirror. I tried to be cheerful, even though I felt depressed. Choosing the positive over the negative will help you navigate through the turmoil of life much better than the reverse.

When turmoil is surrounding you, ask yourself, what is causing this? Could it be me? Could it be from some lifestyle I’m indulging in or participating in?

If you are not causing the turmoil, then take a look around and ask, who is causing this to happen? Is it work, a family member, or a friend? If one of these people, places, or things is causing trouble, then it is up to you to set up boundaries or decide what steps to take to end the ensuing problems.

Setting boundaries is never easy. Beware, telling a family member or friend that this action or behavior is unacceptable will not be easy. But speaking up and saying, “I love you, but I am no longer willing to accept this behavior in my life. If you cannot accept these terms, then we will have a problem.” That is hard, but it is a necessary boundary to set in your life. Unless you enjoy letting everyone run your life – and I suspect you don’t.

Talking to a boss and saying, I will not be available nights and weekends to work, can be frustrating. Some employers expect you to be available 24/7. Being too available for work only allows more tasks added to your existing workloads. Unless you signed up for a 24/7 job, speak to your employer. If they cannot accept these terms, then maybe it’s time to find a new job. Harsh, but true!

Friend relationships are as bad as family relationships. It’s because you bond, become like family, and know each other so well. You can “burn them down in flames” on social media, family, relationships, or work. You get mad at each other, fight, and then makeup just like family! However, a true friend would never “rat” you out, no matter how mad you are at each other. My BFF and I have been friends since high school. We have been through many storms of life together. We’ve been mad at each other, cried together, helping each other walk down the aisle, talk about getting old, seeing our first wrinkles, and about menopause. It’s a great friendship and not one that would ever “burn each other in flames.”

Turmoil can also cause panic! You lose a stream of income or something you are depending on and all of a sudden you find yourself in a state of shock and panic. This can cause sudden irrational decisions that cause devastating life altering decisions that can cause bad financial decisions. Whatever you do, take a day or so to talk it out with your spouse or with someone you trust before making a hasty decision that you will later deeply regret.

Sometimes taking an extra day and night to discuss and sleep on decisions can make all the difference. Just because you have to make a quick decision doesn’t mean you have to make a bad one!
