What you think you KNOW is an illusion.
And that’s not a bad thing.
All this change is unsettling BUT it doesn’t have to be terrifying.
Even though what’s happening in the world right now is new, you have always been living in the Unknown. It’s never been true that you know what’s going to happen next. You can predict and assume about many things, but you don’t actually ever REALLY know. And you are mostly ok. You make a plan. You figure things out. So yes, things you used to rely on are changing, world structures are shifting, you are having to face very tough choices, but if you focus on the fact that you don’t know what’s coming next and you allow that to be frightening you are tripping yourself up.
The fact is, you’ve been living in the Unknown your whole life and you’ve done a pretty ok job of making choices and decisions in that. Right now is new, yes. Things are changing that we didn’t expect to change, yes. But it’s not different in how much you know or don’t. It’s just that before, you could tell yourself you did know. But that was an illusion.
So stop frightening yourself about it all being unknown. You’re actually very competent at living in the Unknown. Take a deep breath, remind yourself that you can do this, and take it step by step.
At decision points you can ask yourself:
If I knew I was safe, what would I do now?
If I knew others would be ok, what would I choose to do now?
If I had no fear, how would I engage with this now?
If I loved myself, what would I choose to do now?
Then follow that truth step by step and you’ll be amazed at how well you are able to navigate the current situations you face.
