Contrary to popular belief, I am not a professional psychiatrist. Yes shocking I know, but I can't help but notice what is
happening to people all around the world. We are experiencing unprecedented times so it's understandable that you feel the way you do, but I am here
to reassure you that everything will be okay and the vast mix of emotions you are feeling are all part of the process. Remember folks, there is
nothing to be ashamed of.
: The truth of reality, or lack thereof, can be a huge shock to your entire psyche when it goes against everything you thought you knew
and believed, leaving you stunned, numb and at a loss for words. This first stage will be the foundation on which everything else will build upon.
: You are still experiencing shock, so naturally every fiber in your being is fighting against this new revelation. You ponder the
possibility that you may have been wrong the entire time, but ego and pride are too much to overcome at this early stage.
: Going through stages of shock and denial will ultimately leave you very frustrated and angry as you continue to try and fight off the
inevitable. This is the stage where your confusion and bottled up emotions mix together and take over your rational side, leaving you to act out of
character and even possibly lash out at people.
: After the foam clears from your mouth and the pent up rage cools down, you begin to rationalize and acknowledge the truth.
This will be a very profound moment in your life. At this stage some people will either run and hide from their own embarrassment, or continue to seek
in vain for a way out.
: when you can no longer run from yourself or the inevitable, the truth sets in and you're left with nobody but yourself. This is a
pivotal and very important moment in the process as it gives you time to reflect on yourself and the situation, giving you much needed clarity. Take
your time if need be.
: You have finally come to realize the true nature of the situation and are now looking for ways to move forward. By this stage you
will have learned so much about yourself, you will have grown exponentially and you will feel reinforced and empowered with your new outlook on life.
If you made it this far, you will now have a brand new foundation to build upon. This is your new beginning.
So there you have it folks, there is light at the end of the tunnel. Remember there is nothing to be ashamed of and the faster you realize this the
faster you can move forward.
