In three words I can sum up everything I’ve learned about life. It goes on.
The toughest thing about dealing with depression is that life goes on. Time will not stop for us or for anyone. The earth keeps spinning. The longer this condition persists, the more likely we are to face another depressing problem: How can we recover that lost time, let alone catch up?
If you own or use a product more sophisticated than a pencil, you’ve probably have had the misfortune of dealing with customer support. Customer support is a wonderful sounding phrase that rarely delivers on its promise. The reason? The support specialist on the other end is trying to help you, not support you.
At this point it’s natural to wonder, what’s the distinction between support and help? Is it a help desk or a support desk? We’ll get to that point later. But first, realize that companies often prioritize efficiency over satisfaction. They want to get your problem solved as quickly as possible even if it leaves you in mental tatters.
I think for a lot of amateurs, their alignment is always out.
Alignment is a fundamental concept in our lives. It shows up everywhere. Whether it be the alignment of our car wheels, our media’s audio and video, or our thoughts and actions – when it is out of whack, we notice. We notice because there is a lack of balance and therefore need for additional effort.
Fortunately, when things become misaligned, it’s simple to correct. Back not feeling right? Call your chiro – a snap, crack, and a pop, and you’re freed from that blight. The light not striking your retina right? The optometrist will fix your vision and restore your sight.
But, what do you do if you don’t know something is misaligned?
