Wisdom in the Midst of Chaos

Psychotherapy does not promise us that nothing will ever go wrong in our lives again. It can't remove intractable evils. What it can do, however, is teach us a variety of mental maneuvers that will render those evils, death among them, a great deal less painful and persecutory than they would otherwise have been. There are better and worse ways to endure the afflictions we cannot avoid. There are ways of interpreting disasters that add a whole new layer of pain and fear to them and others that, while they don't magic away the chaos, at least remove its secondary aggravating characteristics.

We all experience anxiety and fear at some point in our lives, especially during difficult times. Sometimes these emotions can be overwhelming and debilitating, but there are ways to calm ourselves down and find wisdom amidst the chaos. Psychotherapy is one such option, which can help us understand why we have certain biases and how to reframe our perceptions. However, even with therapy, we may still face difficult events that test our emotional resilience. In such situations, we must learn to interpret the events in ways that do not add to our fear and dread.
