When we are immersed in facing the problems that afflict us in life such as the death of a loved one, a separation, a divorce, the loss of a job or an illness, we see the possibility of being happy as distant.
However, we can find a way to be happy while dealing with our problems. This is how the psychologist, lecturer and writer of 10 literary works, Pilar Sordo, explains it in an interview for the group Trade. She clarifies that it is possible to be happy, despite being immersed in problems. She claims that “hePeople who are awake in soul, who are aware of what they eat, how they dress, how they take care of themselves, who are aware of themselves, who can look at themselves, are the people who have the best chance of being happy today”.
The psychologist recognized in LIFETIME AWARDS 2021, as an inspiring woman, warns that there are skills that we have to improve to navigate difficult situations and enhance our self-esteem, two of them are: flexibility and connection with the present.
“The ‘ability of 2022′ is the flexibility, is understood as greater rigidity, greater disease, greater flexibility, greater health. That goes from your physical body to taking care of your energies. Today, people who are not flexible, who are extremely programmed for everything, are having a terrible time… Life is going to get worse, the world is going towards a dizzying, rapid situation, of environmental, climatic, political, social changes very powerful, but if we do not have the flexibility to adapt to those changes, it will be very difficult for us to be at peace and, therefore, to be happy. Another skill is connection to the present. The more we live in the future or stay stuck in the past, the less chance we have of having peace.”, says the speaker.
In addition, it states that you can learn to be happy. Furthermore, he made it clear that happiness is a choice. “You are choosing them to be happy with millions of decisions (in life). You choose it by watching television and injecting yourself with negative news. That takes away your peace and fills you with fear. You also choose it by being connected to the networks all day and not talking to your parents. You choose it with the clothes you wear, how you look, how you eat. You choose it when you sleep. Life is an infinite sequence of choicesyes, It will depend on what you decide if at the end of the day you will feel at peace and happy with what you did.and or not”, he notes.
