For those of you who are not religious, where do you find your faith? More specifically what makes you trust that things will turn out alright in the midst of adversity?
I'll give a bit of background here to show where I'm coming from. I had a few surgeries to remove a pilonidal cyst in the past few years. In the time since it has come back a few times and the scar has also opened up. Anyways I haven't been able to lift properly since, and just got cleared to start everything but squatting. I was discharged from the wound care center 3 weeks ago and told to just keep it clean and dry. Its really hard to do both those things, but I'll spare the details.
Anyways I've been paranoid of it opening up ever since. It is really tender and sometimes I can swear its open, only to find out its not. By myself I can't even see the entire area so a certain level of worrying is derived from that. I'm in college right now, only my 3rd day but its hindering my ability to just relax and have fun. Don't get me wrong I'm going out and doing stuff, but its constantly in the back of my mind.
So basically I'm asking where you guys find the ability to trust that things will work out for the better. Also I'm an exercise science major and dying to start olympic lifting cause theres a great coach here so the pressure is on.
