In last week's episode, we have shown the root causes of pressure and trauma in life. So, the question is where is a way out?

First, you have to position yourself. It means being aware of your abilities and limitations in terms of physical health; mental health; family background; economic conditions; family and social relationships, etc., so that you can choose the right direction for yourself.

Next, you should take the initiative to encounter life with the confidence of someone who understands himself and still continues to learn about himself; always be aware of your boundaries to set specific goals that are, at the same time, suitable to their conditions and circumstances, and be persistent and consistent in all thoughts and behaviors.

Besides, you can also see other people's achievements and success as an inspiration for your thinking and behaviors; but absolutely do not take it as a measure, a standard for you to pursue, because that drains your energy, and then creates unnecessary pressure. You need to assure yourself that you are never someone else - you are just you.

When you have defined your "boundaries", you will be more secure, confident, and proactive in all your thoughts and behaviors. Always listen and understand yourself so that you can form an appropriate self-adjustment mechanism and enlist support and help from family, friends, and relatives. That is the golden key for you to open up a new horizon that is right for you, to reduce pressure, leaving no "door" for the trauma that is lurking in your life!


Do you feel like understanding yourself? Do you tend to compare yourself to the people around you? How does that affect your psyche? Please comment below, or don't hesitate to send a message to @bloomincrisis via Instagram/Facebook or email your
