Surviving Through Difficult Times in 3 Simple Ways
By Anthony Eshun
We have already been advised to take pandemic precaution measures into the year 2021. Because this so-called Coronavirus(COVID-19) isn't ending anytime soon. We still stand at risk of contracting it from anywhere we find ourselves. However, when we gaze at the horizon, we can feel a great sense of hope.
Now, the problem is about how every one of us can live under this crazy normal kind of life. If you feel like things will never be the same again; then you are lying to yourself.
This post will surely inspire you to maintain a positive attitude towards all the challenges you have been going through. There is hope. Just believe that!.
It's a Crazy World
This hectic world never ceases to throw lemons at us. But unfortunately, few of us are able to make lemonades out of the lemons. No matter the circumstance you find yourself; Don't give up. You need to rely on the best kind of life inspiration to move around with confidence.
“When life gives you lemons, don’t make lemonade. Make life take the lemons back! Get mad! I don’t want your D*** lemons, what the h*** am I supposed to do with these? Demand to see life’s manager! Make life rue the day it thought it could give Cave Johnson lemons! Do you know who I am? I’m the man who’s gonna burn your house down! With the lemons! I’m gonna get my engineers to invent a combustible lemon that burns your house down!” —J. K. Simmons
I believe many of you out there will agree with me that this 21st century has been the craziest century for millennials. It's all because of some evil practices of our own kinds. It's all because of their greedy motives to control the world.
Oh yeah, some bad guys feel extremely happy when they see you suffering and dying. Putting fear in you would make you submit to their agenda. Hell no, God is in control and He will help anyone who calls on him in times of troubles.
Just like we have been forced to stay out of work, refuse to have our normal social interactions, and so on and so forth. The worse of it is the alarming rate of unemployment across the world. Many have lost their jobs and as matter of fact can't take care of their families. Their marriages are on the edge of divorce.
The economy is in a worse state and we can all feel it. All we can fight for is our very dear lives. Taking care of ourselves and our families have been a problem. Social and economic activities have already come to a halt. But, as far as we are alive, we must never give up. Just like how the saying goes: "where there is life, there is hope." And I am here to instill that hope in you today.
This Hardship Rather Strengthens You
Maybe you have failed to recognize the good side of facing challenges in life. Whether it is financial constraints, marital problems, health problems, fears, failures, etc, you must stay positive. You know why? Because all of these aren't permanent. Coronavirus for instance will soon say goodbye to us. And everything will get back to normal.
If it doesn't rain for us to stay indoors, feel cold and stranded; we wouldn't know what is joy when the sun shines. So when you find yourself in darker times, believe that everything will be fine.
How to Survive Through Difficult Times
It has become a necessity to know about some of the best ways to survive through difficult times. I bet you, some guys can even survive for several months to years being homeless. It is all about being resilient to fear and failure.
1. Your Mental Health
You must train up your mind to stay positive when you find yourself in difficult situations. Overthinking leads to depression. And that is a dangerous thing. Feed your mind with positive thoughts each day. Read inspirational quotes that can change your life. Go outside and have a small exercise to boost the oxygen level that your brain needs to function properly. And make sure you clear out any negative thoughts or experiences that happened in the past.
2. Be Optimistic About the Future
It is true, the future still remains unknown. But you must plan about how you want to see your life to be in the next 2,3,4,5 etc, years. It is about setting realistic goals to see all your future endeavors become fruitful.
When you make the right decision today, you would be proud of the future. And more importantly, you must learn how to value time. Never waste a minute on unproductive things. Being efficient each day will surely give you a successful future.
No matter how difficult your life is; you can turn things around by having the mindset of an optimistic person. This will work out easily for you if you surround yourself with like-minded people. They will also inspire you to believe in a brighter future. Believing alone takes you one step ahead of success.
3. Exercise Patience
In order to see all your lofty goals come true, you must exercise patience. There is a saying that, patience move mountains. No matter how big your mountain is; you can patiently move it away.
Stay focused on your goals and gradually work things out. If only you use the little energy and other resources you have wisely; you will make it in the long run.
In a nutshell, difficult moments never come into your life to destroy you. They rather teach you valuable lessons that will prepare you for the future.
When you develop a positive mental attitude every time you face challenges; you will overcome them. This is simply because— you did not succumb to failure or fear.
