Navigating through the tough times in life

Tough times in life

When you are going through tough times in your life, and you feel like everything is falling apart, remember that there is always light at the end of the tunnel. Almost everyone has a difficult time in life, and negative thinking will only bring us into a more difficult situation. The most important thing is to think positive. Don’t feel depressed and inadequate, even if things are not the way you imagined it.

When we feel bad, we usually pull back and lose contact with people. It shouldn’t be that way. The most important thing is socializing, meeting new people, because every person is a social being who cannot and should not be alone, especially not during a difficult period.  Your day should not be dull and empty. Every night before you go to sleep, think about what you will do tomorrow, fulfill your day with some commitments from morning to evening, whatever it is. Certainly, if one of these responsibilities is your job, it is another way to divert your thoughts and do your best to shine in your field. Work is not only a source of money, but it is also a place for self-expression, self-realization, self-confidence, a way to spend time constructively during the day or find some content that will capture your attention, thoughts, and activity.

Also, if you are overwhelmed by your tough times, and need a break, find a way to give yourself some free time. Whether it’s a rest at home, in nature, or somewhere else, it’s up to you to decide. But if you feel that you need a respite, take it, it will certainly relieve you of stress. Everyday pleasures should not be forgotten. Sometimes just walking in the park, going to the movies, going for coffee, or ice cream can significantly change your bad mood. Take the time to honor yourself with some small pleasure.
Also, if you are physically inactive, change that. Make a plan, start with easy activities, walk around the neighborhood, for example. Have at least half an hour of physical activity every day, at first, it will be difficult, but later, you will feel better, be patient.

Finding the solution

Each problem has its solution, no problem is unsolvable, just solving some problems sometimes takes a little longer. But wait, everything will come into place. The most difficult and foremost thing is to face your challenges. Never hide your feelings. Suppressed feelings deepen depression and create psychophysical tension. When you are feeling sad, cry, when you are angry, say it. Share your problems and opinions with someone, there will always be a person who will understand you.

Depression is only overcome by the activity and the specific actions you will take to feel better. Sitting at home, blaming yourself, crying over your destiny or blaming your tough life, analyzing your own mistakes daily, being passive, and waiting for others to do something for you is certainly not a solution to overcome depression. Set a goal for yourself and don’t give up until you reach it. And so again and again. Remember the saying, “when the going gets tough the tough get going.” Because life is about achieving goals, when you have no purpose, you have nothing to fight for.
