Tension is Treacherous

Tension is treacherous. It has this uncanny knack of creating havoc within our minds and bodies and its primary function is to create unnecessary panic. And yet we love taking on tension and are so reluctant to let it go.

So what is the cause of tension? In my view the primary causes of tension are fear of failure, fear of the unknown (thinking the worst) and perfectionism.

This morning my son was in a state of panic as he was far from completing an assignment due in tomorrow. He's a perfectionist and a deep thinker. Assignments must be perfect and anything less than an A is just not good enough. What if I can't complete, what if I fail were words that made his head droop and the worry lines appear on his forehead. I can totally relate to that as I was the same when I was his age and watching him tense up made me a little tense too.

So I sent him on his way with some words of encouragement -

  • focus on the task at hand not at what may or may not be
  • focus on completing not on perfection
  • focus on the mandatory requirements not all requirements
  • keep working as stopping is guaranteed failure but persevering gives you a chance to succeed 
  • what will be will be - if you fail, there's always the next assignment or next year and failure teaches many valuable lessons
  • there is no person in the world who has never failed, let go of failure fear as it only holds you back and creates panic and panic inhibits the ability to think clearly

and most important of all
  • have faith in yourself 

And that somehow eased my tension too. 

I love this quote as I believe that failure at some points in our lives is certain, but it need not hold us back:

Success is falling nine times and getting up ten.

Where do I exist?

I often wonder if I exist in another Universe or perhaps even in multiple Universes.

Do I have the same life but at a different points in time in different places - perhaps this is how past present and future exist simultaneously. Or are these lives completely different?

That sense of deja vu that we have now and then, you know that moment when you feel history is repeating itself - what is that - a past life or this one but from another time and place?

And now I am wondering how these crazy thoughts came into my mind. Is me from another place reaching out to me?

Something to ponder over:

If you don't realize a deja vu, you have to realize you're creating a deja vu”
