Conceding, reconciliation, and moving on
ESSENCE - Ligaya Rabago-Visaya (The Freeman) - May 18, 2019 - 12:00am

After so much has been said and done, days after the midterm elections, the time comes when we have to go back to our routines. Though such process and time of healing are very personal as we take things in varying degrees, however, there must be a point when we say that everything must be part of the past.

In any race, the two sides have contributed a great deal of enthusiasm, vitality, and time in their perspective. For some reasons, people take not getting their perspective approved as a danger and a risk to their prosperity. When we need to exist together with somebody who has an alternate point and their perspective is triumphant, it's hard.

It's very testing to be in our current reality where one's firmly-held perspectives are renounced. Our minds fold over the rightness of our view and the need of other individuals to share those perspectives so as to feel that there is structure and wellbeing. In the off chance that you discover the opposite side has won, it is a misfortune which should be lamented and it makes an enormous measure of powerlessness.

We need to recognize that the sentiment of being on the wrong side of any decision isn't only an aftereffect of having not gotten our direction, yet of the power that we place on our perspective triumphing. When we lose it feels wrong, our feeling of control unwinds and that is when grieving starts.

Lamenting and outrage are what should occur with misfortune and undesirable change. What's not beneficial is to clutch outrage about something that can't change and is in the past. That is when harshness and threatening vibe can move toward becoming propensities and point of confinement our proceeding onward and getting a charge out of life.

Forgiveness ought not to be on the menu until we concede that we are troubled as well as frightened, and that sets aside an effort to develop and feel. We need to recognize that our candidate didn't win and that subsequent to encountering the misfortune comprehend that our prosperity doesn't rely upon our side. That's part of healthy grieving before forgiveness takes place.

What absolution includes is a serene acknowledgment that things don't generally work out and we don't need to forfeit our joy as a result of it. Things not going our way is a part of life. At that point, in the off chance that we don't continue demanding that things work out, however, makes some settlement; we can carry on with our existence without being bitter. We can keep on battling politically for what we believe in, however, it won't originate from the bitterness.

A lot of people have put resources into the result of this election. Negative sentiments ran high on the two sides. It might be for a couple of months that the agonizing emotions keep on being blended; individuals feel agitated in light of their misfortune and they scramble to locate a functional pattern. Within that, the dread of not having one's direction show may even now rise for some time.

Be that as it may, the more we make pardoning of not winning, of not having our vision for the nation show and for spending such a large amount of ourselves in a losing cause some portion of the passionate talk, the happier as a general public we will be. A fault is awful for our physical wellbeing. In the off chance that we can make harmony inwardly, we will in general settle for better choices about how to battle for what we need.
