Some Questions to Ask When Things Go Wrong

In order to feel lighter we need to let go

Things going wrong is simply part of life. And most of the time, it isn’t a big deal.

But sometimes it’s important, and worth thinking through.

Here are some questions to ask yourself if something has gone wrong in your life recently:

1. Is this something I should take seriously and try to put right; is it something that is worth working on, and investing more energy on?

2. How much is my fault? Is it something I can change further down the road?

3. How much is outside my control; will anything I do really alter the situation or make a lasting difference?

4. Have I done everything I possibly can? Have I tried and exhausted all possible options?

5. Is it something I should put behind me, and decide to walk away from?

6. Who else has gone through a similar experience, or had this happen to them? Who can I talk to who will understand, and give me valuable help and advice?

7. What can I learn from this experience?

8. How can I build myself up again, so I have the needed strength to go forward in my life?
