“Responsive” living, your answer to a life of struggle
Starting today, see if you can be more “responsive” to life. It can be simple things. For example, not rehearsing how you’ll tell your neighbor that his dog is using your yard as a toilet, or not worrying about what “might” happen if you lose your job. Instead, do nothing! Risk letting these and other situations come to you rather than mentally going to them.
Let life present itself to you. You’ll find out that you won’t let yourself down. I know it will feel risky, which is why I suggest you start with simple things, low impact challenges that begin to demonstrate that, lo and behold, you really can handle life on the fly. Bottom line: self-trust and Responsive Living all comes down to a willingness to believe in yourself and your resourcefulness to handle life’s challenges.
