“Tough times never last, but tough people do.” ~Robert H. Schuller.
At some point in our lives, most of us will face difficult times that are extra stressful or that even shake us to our core. During those tough situations, having strong coping tactics can make a huge difference. If you’re dealing with a stressful situation, don’t waste energy pointing blame at someone else. That just makes you feel less powerful. How you think about a problem affects both how much it upsets you and how well you tackle it. It pays to shift your mind away from negative thoughts or excessive worries.
Accept it and Move –Dealing with a bad situation can be a lot like dealing with grief, and people often go through the same stages: shock and denial, pain and guilt, anger. You might not be able to fully squelch your emotions, but you can decide to accept what’s happened, regardless of how you feel about it.
It’s a learning experience and a life lesson – This same mindset can help improve the way you interpret and respond to events in your life. If you lost your job, perhaps the life lesson is to determine your true purpose. If your relationship falls apart, the life lesson may be to become more independent. Focusing on the lesson allows you to work on positive change, which will make you feel empowered instead of deflated
Restart your journey – People will remember the things you accomplish, but the way you handle life’s challenges can affect them just as strongly. Life happens, and it isn’t always easy. You can bemoan it and fight it, or see dealing with life’s challenges as the most important challenge of all. You can’t always get what you want, but you can work at being who you want to be no matter what life throws at you.
