It is in the most difficult times that truly reveal how we can handle a situation. How we behave in those moments of frustration, confusion and sorrow can be telling. Every person reacts in a different manner. We each have our own values, beliefs and points of view. Yet we all feel pain, sadness and what it is like to be lost ❤
When times get tough some will see it as a challenge that they need to overcome. Otherwise, they may get upset and question, “Why me?”. Both are natural reactions. Some people may fall into both areas. Going back in forth as they are confused. Tackling unexpected circumstances head on is not easy, even for those who have a strong mind. What gets a strong mind through a difficult situation is perseverance and resilience.
They keep going despite how hard a situation may be. Feeding their mind good thoughts as a reminder of what is on the other side of all of this. There is hope, love and success. Reasons to never give up on life as anything that can be overcome, makes those who achieve this stronger. Much stronger each time! With every battle in life, it makes your skin a bit tougher, building layer upon layer of strength.
Over time this layer gets so thick that if a challenge tries to push its way through, it has less of a chance of defeating you, as you gain the experience to handle it and carry on with your life. It is great building this strength but we also need to keep a positive mindset, ensuring that we do not numb our heart, with every scar that we collect from each survival. To keep a good heart with every battle, we need to remind ourselves that we care and that nothing can hurt us enough to destroy the kindness within us, as we are better than that 🙂
Yes, it is not easy and it does take time for people to get to a balance of serenity and courage. You can get there if you have not already. For those who lower their heads in tough times as they are scared, angry or confused. It is fine to asked the, “Why me?” question. Sometimes you will find an answer in that. What you need to do is ensure that you do not get trapped into asking that same question over and over again. If you do so, it will continue to take you to a dark place – where the deeper you go, the harder it is to get out ❤
If you are unsure of what to do, please seek help. Ask those that you live with to help you with your challenges. Although it is hard to ask for help, it is important to do so because if you do not ask and you know that you cannot help yourself, the situation will snowball – getting bigger and bigger, smothering you to the point of exhaustion. We each need to have the courage to help others and seek help when we need it.
If you do not have anyone that can help you or unfortunately no one who wants to help you (remember that these people may need help themselves, so they may feel helpless to be able to assist you), you can do a search online to contact services to speak to someone on the phone. Another great thing is that with the internet you can reach out to people in forums and on social media for guidance. Of course, always be wary of who you may be talking to and never give out personal information. Be safe.
It takes time to learn to be calm but here are some simple ways to get you started. You can practice breathing exercises – slowing down and holding your breath each time. Another one is to listen to relaxing music (you can search Relaxing Music on YouTube), closing your eyes and meditating to calm your nerves. When meditating you may get some answers to your questions as a bonus. The last tip is to say repetitively, “I am calm and strong”. Say it slowly, enough times until you feel calm.
Thank you so much for reading! I really hope this helps you during these difficult times with coronavirus happening. We are all going through a lot. I will continue to post more to spread love and happiness, as well as give updates. Stay healthy and strong. You can do anything. Have a wonderful day!
