This week's question from my portal “The Neagle Code: Directions for Life” comes from someone who wishes to remain anonymous.
David, I’m recently divorced and I’m noticing an internal panic I’m having because I feel like I’m in this alone. Do you have a recommendation for how to move through this?
We all have a sense of feeling alone right now. The crisis itself is creating a feeling of being alone. Part of that is the quarantining taking place, but part of it is pure human nature.
Let me explain. I do an exercise called the 7 Dynamics of Change at some of my seminars. It causes a person to become very self-conscious for a few minutes and after it’s over I talk about how it’s interesting that everyone became very self-conscious during the exercise because we think that we’re the only one going through it. We feel very, very alone even though there may be hundreds of people going through the same thing at the same time.
Now we have a whole world that’s going through the same thing at the same time.
So please hear me: You Are Not Alone.
This is where personal responsibility comes in. You have to take responsibility for your own individual situation and think about how you can do something to get your needs met while also helping someone else get their needs met at the same time.
You need to get proactive about setting things up for yourself. I would reach out to friends, family, coaches, anybody you know through email, text, skype, however you can reach out to people you know. Just calling to say hi goes a really long way. Many people are setting up facetime chats to have a happy hour and share a glass of wine to unwind and talk about their day. People are getting really creative with this, playing games together online, celebrating birthdays through skype, some communities have even been sitting on their lawn at 5 o’clock and having drinks while they tease each other from across the street. Everyone is finding interesting ways to create a sense of community.
You can too.
