Often our feelings of uncertainty are in the context of events beyond our control. These can make us feel angry, upset, anxious. But there is nothing we can do about them. We tend to blame others – the government, the boss, the organisation. It brings us temporary relief to rage at the world and whoever we feel is responsible. But nothing changes. Sometimes it can be more calming to accept that the situation is awful, challenging, and not of our making, AND to focus on what we can actually control. Use this approach to help you focus on what is in your control.
