Living a normal life with minimum to no physical or mental challenges is a common desire.
However, life is full of challenges, and overcoming them is what makes us stronger. It’s important to note that everyone faces challenges in life, and it’s how we respond to them that matters.
While it’s natural to desire a life with fewer challenges, it’s important to remember that overcoming challenges is what helps us become stronger and more resilient.
Overcoming difficulties can help us grow and become better people.
Living with a long-term condition can be challenging, and it often means facing setbacks.
Lately, it has been increasingly difficult, and this time around, I cannot pinpoint the exact reason (or likely due to my latest physical trauma), but it feels like, once again, I hit rock bottom. This feeling has been overwhelming and unbearable, leaving me uncertain about my path, with despair, and a sense of hopelessness.
Synchronicity is a concept introduced by the Swiss psychoanalyst Carl Jung, which suggests that events are “meaningful coincidences” that are not causally related but seem to be related in a meaningful way. Some experts believe that these coincidences are messages from a higher spirit or being, offering guidance and help. However, there is still a lot of research needed to confirm that synchronicity is a valid concept and that it has some science behind it.
In the meantime, some people believe that synchronicity is just the result of confirmation bias, which is the psychological term for recognizing the things that confirm our beliefs. However, others feel that there are no coincidences and that everything holds meaning.
One of the latest self-development audiobooks I listened to, “You can if you think you can” by Norman Vincent Peale, references a quote about winners and quitters, which is
“winners never quit and quitters never win.”
Coincidentally, a dear friend recently quoted this to me and I definitely consider this a matter of synchronicity.
Despite knowing how to face this satback, I’m still feeling unstable and insecure regarding the present and future. Therefore, I will keep relying on the love shared with my supporting network of friends and family and embrace the synchronicity.
Yours in healing,
