Scott M. Peck stated, “Life is difficult.”
Nothing could be more true than this statement. Life gives us a series of problems to solve. If we manage to solve it, we are given new problems. If we cant, life throw us with another set of problems. We are all so caught up in our own problems that we feel disheartened, disappointed and downcasted. Often we forgot to take stock of ourselves. Here are 3 simple reminders to keep us going when life is difficult.
- You will survive. You worry so much about the future. You keep thinking of “solutions” about problems that “might” happen. You justify using “murphy’s law” – Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong. You overthink so much that you unconsciously doubt your capability. When things go wrong, you survived. You will survive and you have been surviving.
- You will feel hurt. This is ok. People will disappoint you. It hurts. You want to numb the pain especially when the hurt is deep and does not go away. To feel hurt is human. Cry and let go of the pain. Then remember point 1 – you will survive.
- You will move on. At your darkest moment, you cant see the light out of the tunnel. You feel depressed and gloomy. There seem to be no way out. Remember that this is just a phase. Life goes in circle. When you are at rock bottom, the only way is to go up. Tell yourself you are progressing; no matter how slow the journey is.
