Q&A: “All Is Well” Attitude Harmful?
We’ve got a great question from a savvy creator who feels stuck. She’s wondering if it’s time to face reality.
What do you say we give this fellow creator some TLC? She’s looking for new insights on an old problem:
I hope I can ask this question of you because I have run out of doctors, acupuncturists, and therapists to ask.
I have a job that I really do love. Great people, great work, great benefits and pay. I would rather work from home, but until then I have a terrific job.
But I am constantly plagued by illnesses that keep me from going to work. And because I miss so much work I am losing a LOT of my pay so I am behind on my mortgage and have several loans/credit cards. My employer is so wonderful that because of my illnesses and doctor’s notes they allow me to make up time by working from home. But then something will happen where I am unable to get the computer connected.
I spend several times a day feeling the feelings of having everything paid off or feeling healthy. And overall I feel I am a pretty happy person. Plus I say Thank You a LOT for the pennies I find, the green lights I get, the beautiful people I see.
I think my faulty thinking is that “something” is trying to keep me down because either I don’t deserve the things I want or that i am being kept down because there is something to learn from what I am going through. I wouldn’t say I have these thoughts/feelings often but I am afraid they might be a core belief.
And I try to counteract these with telling myself that’s not true; my feelings and thoughts determine what I manifest.
I have being trying so hard for so long and so many things (western medicine, eastern medicine, acupuncture, feng shui, and even just giving up and allowing/accepting what is happening and even being grateful for my illnesses, days off work, and bills) and I feel like I am getting nowhere!
I also sometimes feel that my attitude of it will all work out is hurting me. That I am not facing reality. But then the other part of me shouts out that this reality will change as soon as I “believe enough” or “feel the right way.” But then that makes me feel like I am not doing it right either. I just don’t know!
I am really hoping that you have a fresh perspective on this and that you have some wisdom for me.
Thank you so much for all that you do and that you share!!!
I know this is such a compassionate community that many of you are already wanting to help out just after reading that.
Let’s start by practicing some outsourcering where we see our friend healthy, happy and thriving and then share inspired thoughts in the comments.
Thanks, everyone! 🙂
