We've all been there, that moment when we can only see the water rising from your feet to our knees and ultimately knowing that it will rise above our head. Or those frustrating moments when life seems to fight us at every turn. Many circumstances in life can bring about feelings and emotions that leave us 'stuck'. For example, the loss of finances, a loved one, or health concerns can render us hopeless, stressed, and unable to see when or how things will improve.
This brings me to the topic of surrounding ourselves with individuals who are hyperopic (better known as 'far-sighted'). What's up close can be blurry or unclear, but what is beyond is crystal clear. Far-sighted individuals don't even attempt to see things close up, but always extend it out to get a clearer view.
So what's all this got to do with me currently drowning in my fears and circumstances, you ask? When in a slightly irrational mental state, we often cannot even talk our way through situations we view through the lens of doom. It's in that moment that it's helpful to have individuals who only see the current situation as a spec, but can see further down the road to you overcoming the circumstance and sometimes coming out in a better position than we currently stand.
Evaluate the relationships or connections in your life and determine if you have individuals that can can help you see past the bumps in the road, however big or small they may be. These individuals have often hit similar bumps or have reached the destination you are trying to get to. That destination can be physical or mental.
