I was recently speaking with a few people about some hard circumstances they were facing. After they shared some details about their situation, they asked me, “What advice might you have?” What immediately came to mind was “short term steps, long term vision”.
Sometimes we find ourselves in tough spots and need some short term steps to get out of the jam we may find ourselves in. What I have discovered is that it can feel overwhelming to face the dilemma. We avoid it and not think about how it makes us feel. We might experience fear, hopelessness, or anxiety if we think about the issue.
