It is impossible to remove YOU from wherever you are. I suppose you could alter your awareness with drugs and alcohol, but the reality is YOU are still there. The greatest opportunity for happiness lies in being able to soothe yourself back into a place of well-being when life does not go as you want it to.
When faced with a situation that upsets you, or makes you fearful, BREATHE. This is where you BE right now you can’t be anywhere else. By taking responsibility for the choices that have resulted in THIS moment, you have the power to change the experience as well. If we are only a victim or it is all just one big chaotic mess, then there is very little we can do to improve the situation. You can make a decision about how you want to respond, what you would prefer, and while the immediate details might not change, the goal is to FEEL connected to yourself again.
