Ultimately, that is what matters; it is that which is really real; it is the only thing which keeps a person going.
We can become entrenched in the past and remain embroiled in the hurts of our past — of a chaotic childhood, a devastating experience in youth or a traumatic period in early adulthood leading to a post-traumatic paralysis; or, one can submit to the fear of the future — of employment lost, careers destroyed, old age being anything but the sunset of comfortable lives, etc.
Past and future — too much focus on either robs one of the enjoyment of the here and now. For, it is the present encounter with reality which determines the phenomenology of an existential meaning — what we feel, believe, think and do.
Thus, if a medical condition prevents us from enjoying the here and now, then all meaning is lost to the past or future.
If you are a Federal or Postal employee who can no longer perform one or more of the essential elements of your present Federal or Postal position — of the “here and now” — contact an attorney who specializes in Federal Disability Retirement Law and begin the process of trying to regain the here and now, thereby putting aside past traumas and future worries by obtaining a Federal Disability Retirement annuity here and now.
