Just like how we troubleshoot technical problems to find solutions, we also need to troubleshoot the challenges that arise in our lives.
We all face difficulties, hardships, and obstacles, but it’s not the challenges themselves that define us, it’s how we handle them. When faced with trauma triggers, it’s easy to get overwhelmed and give up. But what if I told you that these triggers could actually be an opportunity to improve our minds and learn to discern?
Think of your mind as a machine. When faced with a problem, you need to first identify the root cause of the issue. In the same way, when faced with trauma triggers, we need to take a step back, understand what’s causing them, and come up with a plan to manage them.
Just like a machine, your mind needs regular maintenance to keep it running smoothly. This means taking the time to learn and understand your triggers, so you can effectively manage them when they arise. By doing so, you are strengthening your mental capacity, and improving your ability to navigate life’s challenges.
So, next time you’re faced with a trauma trigger, don’t see it as a setback, but as an opportunity to improve and grow. Remember, the only way to get better is to continuously troubleshoot and make adjustments and keep God first.
I hope this analogy helps you to see the value in troubleshooting your life. Together, let’s work on improving our minds and learning to discern when faced with trauma triggers.
1. “Every challenge is an opportunity for growth.”
2. “The only way to overcome obstacles is to face them head on.”
3. “Adversity builds character.”
4. “I am capable of finding solutions and managing my triggers.”
5. “Every difficulty I face makes me stronger.”
6. “I choose to focus on the lessons, not the pain.”
7. “I am in control of my thoughts and emotions.”
8. “I have the power to heal and improve my mind.”
9. “My past experiences do not define me.”
10. “I choose to see the light in every dark moment.”
11. “I have the courage to face my fears and overcome them.”
12. “I am resilient and can handle any challenge that comes my way.”
When faced with challenges, a troubleshooter knows
That each difficulty presents an opportunity to grow
They see it as a lucky chance to learn and understand
A connection to improve their skills, to strengthen and command
They use discernment to gain a deeper insight
And turn to prayer for guidance and to make things right
They don’t take it personally, but see it as a test
An excuse to master new skills, to be the best
They pick up the pieces, turn their weaknesses to strengths
And matriculate their mind, to greater lengths
For they understand that challenges are there to teach
And with each one conquered, their knowledge will increase
So when faced with obstacles, they don’t cower in defeat
They rise to the challenge, with their feet on steady beat
For they know that challenges are just a part of life
And with each one conquered, they’ll continue to strive through the strife
