    Finding strength to deal with difficulties in life

    During the natural course of our lives, we all will get to enjoy good times but also the bad. It's not too difficult to enjoy those good periods, in fact I'm sure we all revel in them. But since everything moves in cycles, we're bound to also deal with tough times that can last days, weeks, months or even years.

    Some folks can turn into nervous wrecks while others become downright suicidal at the first sign of trouble. Of course, this is no solution, it's important to stay both strong and calm. Often, we must gain our resolve from our inner strength. Sometimes it helps if we have the support of others around us, when we're going through a difficult patch.

    How do you deal with life's difficulties?

    I'm not very good with pressures and sometimes "explode" into a nervous wreck, but I generally try to keep my cool and think about the situation and think of ways I can handle it, usually while I am occupied with doing something else. For instance I'll go and wash my car and while doing it, have a think about things. Or I'll play a racing game and while hot-lapping have a think about things.

    As I said, I'm not good under pressure, but I feel I handle it a lot better than I previously did. (I hope anyway).

    I'm a bit of an eternal optimist, not in a super happy or peppy way, just that it's easier for me to see the good in things compared to others in my life. I'm a pretty chill person, and I just like to take things in stride. Overall if something major is happening I'll sit and think about it, solemnly even, but it's pretty difficult to get me depressed about anything.

    Here's my two cents. Whenever I find myself in a state of vulnerability, I would set aside an hour or two after work and call a friend whom I've established a close bond with and just talk about the situation. Talking about a sticky situation with someone else gives us that third party perspective which helps us reach a better conclusion more efficiently than trying to solve it ourselves within our own minds; two heads are better than one, after all. Even just talking about it for the sake of venting frustration relives so much stress that it will allow us to make a better decision on the matter. However, it may take some time to establish that bond with one of your friends, but trust me, it's definitely worth it.
    A boy has the right to dream. There are endless possibilities stretched out before him. What awaits him down the path he will then have to choose; the boy doesn't always know. At some point the boy then becomes an adult, and learns what he was able to become. Joy and sadness will forever accompany this. He is confronted with a choice; when this happens, does he bid his past farewell in his heart? Once a boy becomes an adult, he can no longer go back to being a boy; the boy is now a man. Only one thing can be said: "A boy has the right to dream.". For those endless possibilities are stretched out before him.

    I usually just keep my troubles to myself. It seems that a lot of people find that difficult. I suppose I find it easier to deal with my own problems by helping others with their own. Perhaps it serves as a distraction.

    For me, it varies from situation to situation. As someone with very bad anxiety by nature, I tend to go into a total panic during emergencies [seriously, there's ar reason I shouldn't be in charge of things]. But some things won't bother me at all- whether it be because I can't smell a gas leak or because I just honestly don't care about the infestation of ladybugs in the hospital [real thing]. Seriously, one day I'll be fine the next I'll turn into a mess. It's all a course of time, who's around, and just what is freaking me out

    Unless there's a thunderstorm. Then no matter what, I'm probably in panic mode.

    I would like to weigh in on the subject of dealing with certain problems on your own. One thing I can strongly recommend AGAINST is if there's a secret you're keeping from your friends and family and you know it's harming them in some way, DO NOT let that secret go on very long or you will regret it. The old adage "the truth will set you free" is so true; any sort of lie you keep to yourself will only fester inside you and make you feel even more miserable the longer it goes on. When it's time to break the news that you've been lying about something for an extended period of time, it's one of the toughest things to do. But, once you let the proverbial cat out of the bag, I ensure you that you will feel twenty pounds lighter. Does anyone else know what that feeling is and how relieving it is?

    Just keep reminding yourself that 80 to 100 years from now, none of us are going to be here. Life is a short, but also neverending cycle. Taking it too seriously is the key to failure.

    When my life is into trials and I am struggling with life miseries, saying a prayer or talking to God is my innermost strength that makes me strong to face what I am going through. Whenever I am praying to Him it always give me hope and inspiration that there is a new beginning after every difficulties in our life.

    I also keep my problems to myself. Mostly because there has never been a time where I talked about something that troubled me and ended up getting the help I needed. Sometimes people, especially family, can stress you out even more when you talk to them. My parents are judgmental and controlling. I dare say they're one of the main sources of stress in my life, perhaps my trust issues stem from them.

    Anyway I found writing to be immensely helpful to me. I just vent and write all my feelings in a journal. A journal doesn't judge you or confront you, it just listens
    I found that reading my previous journal entries a few years later has helped me understand myself a lot better. Helped me understand my weaknesses and strengths and why I do or act in certain ways. Writing all your thoughts down and reading them later while remembering how you felt gives you great insight on your personality.
