The beauty of the future is that it hasn’t happened yet. Therefore, with the exercise I shared last time, you could imagine your positive future where you have more time. You can use this vision as a guide.
However, it can of course also be that the future develops differently and a possibly already existing negative trend continues in the sense of a vicious circle – you already have too little time now. Knowing this horror scenario is often good, because you then have a picture in front of your eyes that must be avoided at all costs.
Again, I invite you to sit down, but this time to „nightmare“. Imagine what a „worst case“ might look like if your current situation were to continue with too little time.
A father’s nightmare could be: „It’s Friday afternoon. One of those Friday afternoons that I regularly experience every two weeks. On which my two children come to spend the father’s weekend with me. Since the separation from my wife, this is normal. I think it’s all sh…, but it came about this way because I was not there enough for my wife and children. The job came first and after that not much. Now I have only a few moments of happiness with my children, also because they have realized that I am the main culprit for the fact that we are no longer a happy family. Accordingly, these weekends are tense.“
