Plop plop, fizz fizz, oh what a relief it is. No, I’m not going to write an Alka Seltzer advertisement today. But, I am going to focus in on the topic of relief. There are four ways that we can get relief from a situation:
- The situation can go away on its own / resolve itself
- Someone can intervene and resolve the situation
- We can take some action and resolve the situation
- We can accept the situation and learn to deal with it
What’s interesting is how many folks focus on the first two (going away / someone fixing it) versus the second two (taking control / dealing with the situation).
Ultimately it’s up to each one of us to decide how we’ll find relief from the pains that trouble us. For me, I much prefer the taking control and/or dealing with the situation approach. Relying on someone or something else to provide me relief just doesn’t make sense.
With that in mind:
How will you take relief?
As always, thanks for the time.
