A crisis is generally unexpected and produces anxiety, stress, threat. Incidents like an earthquake, terrorist attack, tornado, or an accident. A crisis can also be any significant change in the daily life events of an individual or the significant other. They are life-altering events.
And on an individual or a personal level, the crisis is an unexpected event or events that trigger stress to an extreme and affect the individual’s psychological balance.
Herein, what can be added is that HOPE inhabit in a change of perspective. According to Spiritual psychology, all events are transient and persistently changing and the human mind tends to fix and take them to be as permanent. This is the root cause of extensive emotional and mental suffering. So it is essential to understand and accept that nothing is definite. The essence of life is change. Change is eternal. Anything that is everlasting is change.
Living through stress and uncertainties producing discomforts is to strengthen and learn resiliency – that is to adapt and accept the change. And grow as an emotionally and mentally strong individual.
