How do you prepare for difficult situations? Whether an upcoming test, presentation or event with a toxic family member, we usually avoid thinking about it. But preparing can mean the difference between leaving the situation victorious or feeling like a victim and failure.
Don’t wait for your next uncomfortable event to prepare. You can start with small tasks and gradually increase the difficulty. Small exercise sessions can eventually lead to overcoming bigger obstacles.
If you have an upcoming event with a toxic relative, for example, rehearse what to say and how to protect yourself first with a loved one, and then with a toxic co-worker.
Working your way up from what you initially perceived as impossible will eventually lead you to what’s possible.
