There’s something about us, humans, that we always want answers or reasons behind things happening to us. So, how comes sometimes we would much rather prefer an explanation of any kind or an answer as bad as it might be?
Whether we’re feeling low for longer periods of time or perhaps it’s our health playing up, it seems that we always want to find an explanation for it because even if the results come back with diagnosis we’re terrified of, we’re still relieved because we know what we’re dealing with.
I’ve had this twice now. The first time I felt tired constantly, I tried different things but nothing really helped. It felt like I am starting to imagine it, perhaps I am making it worse always thinking about it, a reverse placebo if you like. Even the blood test came back clean with no indications of any vitamin deficiencies. I was so hung up on finding the explanation that in a way I made it worse, because it was constantly on my mind.
Same thing happened recently, I had some health issues that I went to get another blood test for. Again, it came back clean. How could it? Even when I made a consultation with a doctor and told him my worries, he checked me and said it’s all fine, physically you’re healthy.
Why is it that you’d much rather prefer a negative diagnosis than no diagnosis at all? Maybe because you realise that you the things that have caused you concern or discomfort are ones stemming from within? And, now you have to work on yourself, there is no miracle pill or treatment to make you feel better.
Maybe because it seems like such a hard work to work on yourself when we’re inundated with 1-time, 1-day miracles, from diet pills, teas or coffees, to everything else we may want which is now available with Amazon Prime and one-click delivery.
I will struggle with this as much as everyone else does and will, and I’m telling you working hard on yourself is not a one-day miracle, it’s the longest and most complicated project you’ll ever take on but it’s the one that will yield you the most wonderful results that you simply cannot buy.
Let’s be mindful, kind to ourselves, our body and mind. Let’s take a moment to meditate, to switch off, even if it’s just for half an hour every day.
