“In 2015, Sheryl Sandberg’s husband, Dave Goldberg, died suddenly at the age of forty-eight. Sandberg and her two young children were devastated, and she was certain that their lives would never have real joy or meaning again.”
Her husband Dave collapsed on the gym floor during his cardio session in Punta Mita, Mexico (he was celebrating his birthday with family and friends). Later, everyone came to learn that Dave had an arrhythmia caused by undiagnosed coronary artery disease. When she talked to her psychologist, he helped her realize just how fortunate she still was—her husband could have been driving in the car with her children when he suddenly collapsed. Sheryl could have been left with no husband and no children. The pain was still there after this epiphany, but also a sense of relief and light that brightened up the dark hole she had been stuck in.
What about you? What’s your tragedy and how can you find an alternative way to view your tragedy, stressor, trauma, regret, mistake, etc.?
There is always another way to view the situations that arise in our lives. How we view and handle these circumstances can make or break us. Instead of letting tribulation crush us, let’s step outside of ourselves for a moment. Let’s talk with a friend or a professional — who can be objective, genuine, and honest — who will enable us to find a more prolific way to handle the trials and feelings we deal with.
