This question was boggling me for a while. Not that I am going through a particularly difficult stage at this point in my life, but there definitely were times when I was going through something that proved to be a challenge. As I am certain most of you have also experienced, at moments such as this one, it is your own personal mechanism of coping with problems what counts the most. So, I wondered for a while, what should one do when life hits you hard?
For me, the most stressful period in my life came unexpectedly. It was nothing anyone had said or done, nothing particular that happened, but a combination of things that really messed up my life and my head. However, as I do come from a strong family, I was always stoic about dealing with any problems that I must face. You have a problem; you deal with it – that was my motto. However, things are not always that simple.
When life hits you hard, should you hit it even harder? And if so, how do you continue living your normal life after you are batting for so long. Dealing with your issues is certainly individual. However, if you want to learn how to best go about it, you have to listen to your heart. Also, it depends on the challenges that you are going through.
Faith keeps you groing
For many people, faith is what keeps them going. For millennia, in fact, faith had been one of the main motivators for people to continue living their lives. If you want to keep going no matter what, perhaps you should find something that you will believe in. Whether it is a religious belief, or belief in yourself, or belief that everything will eventually work itself out, believing is the most powerful tool that you can use.
Other than that, having support also means a lot. If you are going through difficult times, do not be strong and stoic about it. Do not complain either, but turning to your friends and family for support will show you that you are not alone.
