Staying in Bad Situations Too long/ Faulty Delayed Crisis Assessment Skills

Postby allesandro » Mon Apr 23, 2018 6:12 pm

Often when feeling overwhelmed, I just continue to function status quo because it seems as though I can't think properly with regard to assessment of the situation and on the spot planning with regard to possibly changing course or redirecting myself. Then afterwards, I beat myself up because it seems that the answer was so obvious, why did I stay in such a situation for so long? Why couldn't I see how obvious the answer was? I wonder if this is characteristic of dyspraxia or just idiosynchratic to me?

I see it as caring enough to persist when a lot of people will say screw this I will fight it tooth and nail until it is sorted. Of course sometimes I might be better off saying screw it it can sort itself out as it really isn’t my problem so I’ll hand it over or hand it back.

Sometimes it pays to walk away as there’s no reason why you can’t revisit it once a solution occurs to you at a later time and place if there is still benefit in doing this.

thanks. I think perhaps when something is that emotionally charged it's hard to have perspective. like they say hindsight is 20/20
