“One is never afraid of the unknown; one is afraid of the known coming to an end.”   Jiddu Krishnamurti

When faced with the unknown the first response is to grab a hold of the problem shake it till it’s manageable and then try and stuff it into a box you know something about.

Logical explanations help us keep our fear at bay.

If we know what it is, we think we can do something about it.

That is, if it is a problem that has dimensions and edges and shape.

Some problems don’t have that. Like relationship problems. They are all over the place, they don’t have edges and the solution depends on one or more people stopping long enough to listen and be present.

The listening thing is to first listen to what your intuition has to say. Then maybe listen to what someone else has to say.

Your logical self will not bring you to your happy place. It wants to scramble and fight and argue for what it thinks is right.

Take it all in but process it with your heart not your head.

When you face the unknown let go of the old rules.

Just this once promise yourself you will listen to your heart. That is where you can navigate the unknown.

This is who you are.
