Answer: Stop imagining it.
There is something to be said about the destructiveness of self-fulfilling prophecies that we sometimes impose upon ourselves.
When even a hint of trouble is immediately viewed as a disaster, and any attempt at remedying a situation is brushed aside with “What’s the point? It will never work,” then what chance do we stand when things really go bad?
It is important not to give up before the battle has even begun, and to avoid taking ourselves to that dark and lonely place if we can help it. A little positivity mixed with determination will go a long way.
Thanks again for playing along.
