    I definitely understand how you feel – I get frustrated with myself and my MD when I fall or trip, and I let myself feel angry for a bit because I can’t snap out of it right away.

    I spend a lot of time when these things happen reminding myself that this is something in my life I can’t control, and that honestly helps mean a lot. I do try to focus on the things that I *can* control, like actively thinking about lifting my feet when I walk because that’s usually what makes me trip/fall.

      I think it is best if I don’t snap out of it right away and sit with it (pun intended). I believe nowadays in feeling what you feel in the moment but never letting it linger too long. “This too shall pass” is a motto I am trying to adopt.
