How to Recover from a Fall

Posted by medliorator on February 28, 2008

2. Relegate the upset to the past – now is the time to move on, with your head held high, no matter how bad the situation was previously.


3. Don’t keep trying to find ‘blame’ – From blaming yourself for everything, to blaming every person alive who isn’t you, it’s not useful to dwell on blame itself. By all means, learn from your mistakes, but don’t beat yourself up at the same time. And if someone else has caused this and you can’t do anything about it, your best bet is either to move well away from the source of the problem and to understand that your life can’t be perfect the whole time. None of us are immune to injustice and setback.


4. Plan ahead – What you do next could shape a remarkable comeback, or a festival of ‘nothing’. By planning ahead, you set yourself up for the former a lot better.


6. Don’t fret, ponder and dwell – If you aren’t reliving the memories, you may still be agonizing over the problems. If you’re in deep dung, you can handle it better when you focus on actions, rather than the upsetting issues.


7. Stop looking for sympathy – It’s ever so nice to hear that others are thinking of you in your difficult time. Sympathy and empathy do have their place, but don’t get stuck there. With too much sympathetic talk, you’ll just get used to the position with a negative stance. Remember, now is the time to move on!


8. Write out your recovery plans – Put your actions in front of you. Note down how you aim to crush everything in your path. List all the feats you will be performing to get back on top. When you’ve written down your plans, you have a physical document to refer to. Stick it up on your wall and work toward it until you achieve the goals.
