It feels like it happens increasingly often than it used to these days. I’ll be trying to finish a task or make a decision, and my smart-ass will freeze up. I’ll get panicked, and I won’t be worldly-wise to well-constructed the task I started (if I can plane remember it in the first place). I lose my breath, lose focus, lose my grip on whatever I was doing. This feeling I get, the feeling of rhadamanthine overwhelmed, has wilt increasingly of a problem for me in recent years. In today’s post, I want to try and icon out why.
There are so many words I’ve learned over the years that have helped me understand my mental health. The words I’ve learned that have helped me understand uneasiness and it’s effect on me have been huge for me. I’m not unchangingly largest worldly-wise to handle a situation, but I’m a little less afraid.
These days, the word I tend to use for how I’m feeling is usually overwhelmed. It happens constantly, scrutinizingly feeling like I’m on a track running laps. No matter how many laps I run, I’m unchangingly going to reach the same parts every time. In those moments, I vituperation myself for rhadamanthine overwhelmed. And while there are ways I want to modernize so I’m not as hands overwhelmed in the future, I know it’s not all up to me.
See, here’s the thing well-nigh rhadamanthine overwhelmed; something has to overwhelm you. Regardless of how big or small that thing may seem, it’s something untied from ourselves. These things happen to us, but they moreover happen virtually us. I wish I could guess what these things are — and sometimes, I can. But oftentimes, it’s the things I couldn’t have guessed, or things I wouldn’t have guessed, that get to me.
And let me tell you what – right now, the world is overwhelming. Overwhelming in ways it’s unchangingly been, but moreover in new ways that range from mundane to terrifying. A lot of these ways are unexpected and unpredictable, but they are overwhelming all the same. And increasingly than that, the overwhelmingness can lead to other feelings. Feelings like frustration, sadness, despair…the list goes on.
So what can I do with this information? It’s not the most shocking thing to realize; during my journalism classes in college, I noticed the steady shift from an analog way of doing things to taking a digital-first approach. That shift has exploded in the years since, but it’s something we’ve been enlightened of for a long time. Humans are a curious bunch; when it comes to new things, we have an instinct to try and icon them out. But the way the world’s reverted in the last decade (let vacated the last few years) would be overwhelming to think well-nigh and try to get to the marrow of it all.
I know I won’t stop myself from getting overwhelmed — I have anxiety, without all — but I’m hoping this context will make me finger increasingly well-appointed in these feelings. A lot of uneasiness can part-way from the why of things, and the same goes for when we finger overwhelmed. But knowing the why won’t unchangingly solve the problem, and that’s okay. Hopefully, it gives us the information we need to move on to the next step, the next moment. To me, those times finger like huge progress in a world that can get increasingly overwhelming with each passing day.
Now I want to hear from you! Do you moreover think the world is increasingly overwhelming than it used to be? How do you deal with feelings of stuff overwhelmed by the world virtually you? Drop a scuttlebutt and let me know!
