How To Stay Strong During Difficult Times

Difficult times comes with a lot of negative negligence, depression, devastation, hopelessness, rejection, and dejection that if not well taken care of mentally, emotionally and spiritually can drain one's will, belief and self-confidence.

Life is not a bed of roses and bearing that in mind can really help in your cause, what you should also keep in mind is that difficult times are temporal and as such can only last for a while.

I made that statement out of my own personal experience in life. Know it that whatsoever difficulty you are experiencing in your life today it's not new on earth cause a whole lot of people have experienced such and survived. Below are some things you can do during difficult times to stay strong...

Avoid stressing and worrying about it 

I read an article about stress and worry that kind of educated me the more about stress and worry. In that very article the writer talked about an illustration with a glass of water which a teacher used to illustrate to her students in a class lecture. Making the students understand that it doesn't matter the absolute weight of the glass of water that what matters is how long she holds the glass of water.

She went ahead to say that if she holds it for an hour, she would have an ache in her arm, for a day her arm will feel numb and paralyzed. In each case, the weight of the glass does not change, but the longer she holds it, the heavier it becomes.

So you see that the stress or worries of this life are like glass of water, think about them for a while and nothing happens. Think about them for a bit longer and they begin to hurt. And if you think about them all day long, you will feel paralyzed, incapable of doing anything. It's very important to remember to let go of your stress and worries as early as in the evening as you can, put all your burdens down. Do not carry them through the evening and into the night. Remember to put the glass down. You can also read this very article on this blog i published one time ago where i wrote exclusively about How to live a stress free life and it's benefits. 

Maintain Positivity:

Obviously many negative thoughts flows through one's mind during difficult times but it is paramount that you try as much as you can to remain positive, maintain that positive vibe in your thoughts and actions.

Reject, neglect and discard every negative vibe coming from people around because believe me a greater percentage of people that comes to inquire of your well-being at this trying time of your life are not genuine. They do not have your best interest at heart, they sympathize with you in front of you and goes behind your back to mock you. So maintain that positive energy and neglect their talks.

Take things easy:

Do not take it to be a do or die affair, take it one step at a time believing that one day you will look for those problems and they will be no where to be found. Easy does it.


Always remember those difficulties you are experiencing in your prayers cause he is the master of peace, in him there is joy, happiness and peace of mind that man can never give you even with all the wealth in this world. God can turn that difficult situation around for the best.

So i say, Do not stress and worry about that difficult situation, take things easy, maintain that positive energy and also remember those problems in your prayers and when the time is right everything will be all right.
