How to Handle a Disaster
Any person can face a disaster, such as a car accident. It takes courage and time to heal. We have heard about people who have beat the odds and regained happiness.
Here are ways to handle a disaster and overcome the blues:
Be prepared for the unexpected
Disasters can happen at any time. As you go about your daily life, be prepared and learn to expect potential problems.
Do not depend on hope by yourself
Few people can remain truly optimistic under dire situations. Experts say thinking too much can be dangerous. For example, if you and your guy have separated, it’s natural to expect his return. However, he may never come back. Once reality hits and you are left alone overnight, the disaster can be life threatening.
Fight the freeze:
Relationships end every day. Some people are just not ready to believe the fact that it has happened to them.
- According to experts, the brain may freeze when a disaster occurs, which leaves the body without instructions. If this happens, psychologists recommend talking aloud about everything. This can help jump start your mind and get you into a reactive state.
