Have you ever been flooded with mixed emotions?

I am currently going through this phase in my life wherein there are so much decisions to make. In the process of making decisions, I realized that things are not as easy as they seem to be. At this very moment, I am anxious, happy, sad about certain things, and excited all at the same time. Good thing I still have my sanity intact... or is it? lol! How about you my friends? Have you ever been flooded with mixed emotions? How did you deal with it?

You're right! Every decision has to be approached in a different way. Some are simple, some not so simple, and we're pulling ourselves every which way to get our lives sorted. But, eventually, everything balances and you will find yourself back on a normal way of life. It's a pity everything has to come at one... a test, for sure. Brightest Blessings.

There's just too much to hurdle at this time... You are right, some are simple, others, not so simple...

Everything that we've been through is just another way of our Lord Almighty's battery of test... Let us remember that the strongest tree in the forest is not the one that is hidden in the forest but the one that is expose to fierce heat of the sun and one that stand the chilling temperature brought by winds... Let us extend our gratitude in Him in making us his strongest tree.

I am experiencing the same thing but I am particularly in a very difficult situation and I am also worried if either I am still sane or not... My husband left me and said he's never coming back, we haven't really tried everything for our marriage to work out for he gave up on me... He resorted to finding another woman and now I think they are living in, and he's found what he's looking for, he turned his back from me and my daughter and his family just for this girl. I sould be happy for he's doing me a favor, I can be miserable all my life thinking that he might cheat again even if he comes back... But I just can't give him up, I still love him very much. I want to hold on, but how could I...

Distance yourself from all emotions of 'conflict' dolce if you can,have faith and trust all will turn out for the best,wether it appears to or not.(we don't always know what will serve our highest purpose)Hold on to faith and trust.

Everybody dealt with it one or many times in their lives. I'd experienced drifted in a sea of mixed emotions that I almost drowned. Good thing, life's throwbacks made me tough and mature. As I go on with my journey, I made wrong decisions in life, learned from it and dealt with the consequences. Life will not be exciting without those glitches that we need to decide or look for a solution. After all, we have friends, family and God to push us up in case we stumble and cant be able to stand up.

There have been many times when i have had mixed feelings about numerous different things. It's hard to deal with them, but for me I just sit down and talk to various people about them and think things through before I make decisions.

Just having kids floods you with mixed emotions! lol. Seriously, I think we have all been there. It's all part of maturing and growing up, although, it never seems to stop. I guess it's just life. I usually have to just stop and take a mini break from the challenges that I am going through. Read a little bit, go out for a coffee and just people watch, you know - go do something that you enjoy that relaxes you. Take a moment to clear your head, then focus on what you need to do. Sometimes just hearing other people's stories help me too, because then I think - I can handle this, it's not as bad as what so and so is going through. Hnag in there and I'm sure you'll make great decisions.

I think we have all had the experience of being overwhlemed by the many different things going on in our lives from time to time. Which yes, could make us feel like we have gone insane/lost our minds. *LOL* I have learned that when I get into this kind of situation the best thing to do: Stop, take a breath or two, and let things calm down before trying to tackle it anymore.

I've had mixed emotions before. I always try to find a good place to sit to think about it. When I'm angry and upset, I try to stuff my face in my bed sheets and just yell or cry. When I can't make a decision, I try to take deep breaths and think about it.
