Faced with crisis, the man of character falls back on himself. He imposes his own stamp of action, takes responsibility for it, makes it his own. – Charles de Gaulle
Everyone responds differently in a crisis. Some people shut down completely. Others jump in and deal with the situation as it happens, only to fall apart later.
Think about some event of crisis in your life. How did you deal with it at the time? How do you view your behavior now that time has passed, and what did you learn about yourself?
I tend to deal with it head on and then it hits me later after all the dust has settled.
It usually hits me quite hard later on and then it takes me some time to pull myself back together. But in the moment, I’m there. I’m present and I do whatever needs to be done to make sure everything is okay.
