Have you ever been in love? Or have you ever felt the presence of someone who loves you? It is through love that the lives of our ancestors have transcended over lifetimes of generations. The mere presence of love brought our families to one another to care for and to nurture each individual.
To love or to be loved? It is both. The love in familial relationships is a treasure to cherish for millennia to come. However, placing love in the family context can be confusing as things may not go as expected. Thus, you must be prepared to give way for uncertainties that may occur and allow yourself to accept help from the people you trust.
Helping you with that, here is a set of things to do whenever unexpected situations occur and the bond between you and your family has ruptured. How does this help restore the unbalanced?
Simple! Just use PaBAT (Pause and breathe, Acknowledge, and Take Control).
– Pause and Breathe
We must remember that whenever a problem arises, we are not computers that process information instantly. We are but mortals in this world, going about our daily lives trying to make them as perfect as possible given our flaws. As a result, you must take your time to mature and learn about the world around you. When confronted with a problem, the best course of action is to pause, look around you, and take in what you can from what you see.
– Acknowledge the sitauation
Any situation, no matter how favorable or unfavorable can have an impact on your overall well-being. As a result, you will be able to see and accept the situation for what it is, rather than treating it as if it were abnormal and requiring special attention.
– Take Control
This final step is taken to ensure that the process of coping with life’s uncertainties is a complete success. This is the point at which you begin to exert control over everything under your jurisdiction, guiding it toward your desired outcome.
Although challenging, it is not impossible. These three things are just a few of so many coping tactics that require one family member’s immense care and love to another to restore unbalanced relationships between family members and friends.
