Disruption is never comfortable whether it is positive or negative. Disruption can happen by chance, by choice, by crisis or calamity. It can be viewed either as a punishment or as a mechanism for change as well as a doorway to new amazing new possibilities. Working with disruption – in order to learn and grow – is quite different to kicking against disruption and getting stuck in a deep, dark hole that is void of possibilities as well as opportunities.
If we are unable to keep perspective in disruptive times, we run the risk of getting stuck in the negative emotions and feeling completely overwhelmed or buried by them. Instead, if we can hold on to perspective then we empower ourselves and are able to keep our fears in proportion.
