Resilience and Inner Peace: How to Get Through the Angst

Resilience and Inner Peace: How to Get Through the Angst

We all have moments where we feel overwhelmed, anxious and on the verge of giving up. The world is not a perfect place and life does not always go according to plan. It can be difficult to maintain your inner peace when you are constantly being faced with unexpected challenges that you cannot control. However, there are ways in which you can learn how to get through these tough times by developing unshakable resilience and maintaining an inner sense of peace.

First, it is important to learn how to let go of resistance. All suffering comes from resisting what IS and fighting against the present moment will only make you feel worse in the long-run. It’s okay if things don’t happen exactly as you want them to; there are factors that are outside of your control which you cannot change. All you can do is focus on what’s in your control and make the best of it without being a victim to your thoughts. With this empowering concept, you may make something truly remarkable out of your life.

Once you understand how to master your thoughts, all that’s left for you to do is step forward into life with confidence knowing that everything will always work out somehow even if it’s not according to your plan. To get through the angst, you must become ruthless with your mental chatter and learn how to focus on what is within reach of your control while letting go of everything else.

How can I do that? – You’ll inquire of me. It’s easier than you’d think. All you have to do is follow these three easy steps.

It is Critical to Track Your Mental Chitchat

We are constantly bombarded with messages from the mass media that only exacerbate the darkness on an individual and global scale. Most people think it’s critical to be informed, but there is a distinction between knowledge and panic, which generally emerges from the mental conversation. Our mental chatter is counterfeit news, so we must filter what’s false in order to stay informed correctly.

The modern world is pervaded with high-tech technology and gadgets that allow us to have immediate access to information at all times. However, rather than utilizing these technologies in a beneficial manner, we do the reverse, and maintaining up with such a rapid pace can be extremely stressful.

While we may be driven into the pessimism pit of continuous predictions in a never-ending economy and politics, there’s also another more dangerous news source to watch out for — your own mind.

If you pay attention to your negative mental chatter, you’ll produce the most awful possibilities that won’t happen to the vast majority of individuals. Instead of concentrating on everything you hear on television, in publications, or hear from your friends and neighbors, concentrate on stability.

Make a point of monitoring your mental babbling and redirecting it toward a more positive goal. Pay attention to only one thing at a time, giving your full attention to what you’re doing at that moment. Even distasteful chores may become doable once you refocus your thoughts and emotions.

What are you telling yourself? Do these thoughts empower or disempower you? One of the best ways to keep track of your mental chatter is by keeping an ongoing journal. You can make a simple list in which you write down what’s bothering you and how it makes you feel followed by three positive things that happened today, no matter how small they may seem. As you write down each issue, try to keep a positive mindset by concentrating on the good things that have happened in your life no matter how small or insignificant they might be. Lastly, work with this list every day and read through it before going off to sleep so that you can end your days on a high note.

Accept Everything As It Is, Rather Than What You Think It Should Be

We must learn to accept everything as it is, rather than what we think it should be. This includes our own thoughts and feelings that make up a large part of who we are. There will always be some things you cannot control; therefore, learning how to accept them can go a long way in your journey toward inner peace and happiness.

The most convincing illusion we have is that we have power, but in reality, we don’t. Consider it for a moment. We cease taking life for granted when we recognize this fundamental yet powerful idea that we don’t have control over anything, including the most basic things such as food, running water and toilets. We should not only be grateful for what we have, but we must also accept things as they are without resisting them.

We all face challenging times at some point of time. We may lose our jobs, our money runs out, and everything appears to be going from bad to worse. But you’re not alone; there are others who are in a far worse situation.

Accept and embrace reality as it is rather than wasting time worrying about it and fighting against it. If you surrender to acceptance and redirect your circumstances, you’ll instantly feel a burden lifted from your shoulders.

Concentrate on How You Can Help Others

When you focus your energy on helping others rather than yourself, it’ll be easier to let go of feelings of anger and resentment. It’s impossible for anyone to make positive progress if they’re stuck in a cycle of mental chatter that keeps them entrenched in the past or worrying about their future.

Whether at home, work or school, there are always a few opportunities to help someone in need. Don’t wait for things to go wrong, but instead be proactive and offer a helping hand whenever you can since it’ll make all the difference.

Being kind doesn’t mean that we have to abandon our own needs altogether; rather, we must find balance by learning how to take care of ourselves along with others. If you’re someone who’s often struggling to find inner peace, then try spending more time on your own and reflect upon how you can help yourself and those around you. As the Buddha once said: “The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, worry about the future or anticipate troubles but to live in the present moment wisely and earnestly.”

Consider asking yourself the following questions: Who am I and who do I want to become? How may I serve others in this time of great need? 

Consider how you might answer these questions, and keep them in mind. As a result of this, you will feel better and less stressed, and your good vibes will be easily detected by others.

If we can all adhere to these three principles, the dread and negativity surrounding the worldwide pandemic and politics may begin to fade. We’ll be more concerned with assisting others than with ourselves. Keep in mind that we are all connected, and when we work together, we can make a significant impact on a global scale.
