Lost my job, might be losing my apartment, filled with worry.
How do I learn to be okay with these things that life inevitably throws at us? How can I stay mindful in the midst of nothing but worry about the future? I am having thoughts like, "It's all crashing down, how will I be able to survive?"
I've tried to not let worry invade every thought I have, but then I feel that it only turns to a dispassionate or cynical view towards life and its problems.
In the midst of instability, where do I find courage to continue?
NOTE: I have no intention of using this forum as a self-help outlet. I am just wondering how a Buddhist would confront such things and what their attitude might be.
