The lease on Alexia’s apartment will come up for renewal in 3 months. Her apartment complex was recently bought out by a new property management firm, and Alexia has heard rumors that these new owners will raise all tenants’ rents substantially. She is very worried that she will not be able to afford the increased rent and will be evicted or have to go without enough food or her medications. Alexia’s friend Beth says she should try to ‘regain or let go of control’ in this situation. What does that mean?
a. Alexia should go for a walk outside every time she begins to worry about the rent.?
b. Alexia should ignore the rumors and not think about the possibility of a rent increase.
c. Alexia should look for a less expensive apartment and be prepared to move if necessary.?
d. Alexia should make a list of all her worries, then tear it up and throw it away.?
