HOW TO FACE YOUR PROBLEMS
This world is a difficult place to be. So it is either you are a winner or a looser. It is either you are successful or a failure; it is either you are a survivor or a dead meat. You can only choose one, and obviously, everyone wants to be successful. You cant be successful without putting in some work. So below are some of the ways to face your problems courageously:
The battles that we fight alone inside of us are some of the hardest. It’s easy to get overwhelmed by feelings of hopelessness, despair, or confusion. Those feelings can cause a person to run away from the problems they are facing.
Unfortunately, that doesn’t often work. A change of scenery or changing up one’s situation can be nice, but in a lot of scenarios it doesn’t actually solve the problem and prevent it from coming back in the future.
Accept your downfalls
I know you will be wondering why I said that. That’s a pretty strong statement, isn’t it?
Most positive and good things in life will inevitably include or bring some suffering. There’s no real way around that.
Do you want to experience a deep love? Then you have to accept that you will eventually feel a deep loss.
Do you want to lose weight? Then you have to accept dietary and lifestyle changes to make that happen.
Do you want to get mental troubles under control? Then you have to accept the discomfort that comes with therapy and doctors.
Do you want a better job? Then you have to accept the uncertainty and discomfort of job searching, interviewing, or training for a new career.
There is nothing gained without some suffering, but many people are so intent on finding a vibrant, fictional happiness that they sabotage their ability to acquire meaningful things.
It is rare that anyone will accomplish anything without a lot of work, which sometimes means suffering through tedious and uncomfortable things.
To face your problems courageously, you’re going to have to accept that you aren’t going to feel comfortable. It’s not going to be an easy, happy, or pleasant process.
This is not to suggest that “everything happens for a reason” or that you should suffer through being treated disrespectfully or abused. It does not mean that you deserve to suffer. It only means that change is going to bring some pain with it. There’s no avoiding it.
Get all the support you need
Many journeys in life are lonely, but they don’t have to be. You can get support from people who have your best interest at heart. There are other people out there who are on similar paths, who have made similar journeys, who are striving to accomplish the same goals you are.
There may also be people around you that you can lean on as you work to overcome whatever obstacles you are trying desperately not to run away from.
Not every trail needs to be blazed on your own, even if it is something personal. There are people out there that have already walked the paths that you are just now embarking on.
You may be able to find support in mental health communities, therapy, support groups, or even social media groups.
But, you do need to be cautious and exercise some careful judgment. If it’s a mental health or trauma-related challenge that you’re working to overcome, it’s a good idea to stay in carefully controlled spaces where professionals are present if possible. Consumer groups can be helpful, but they can also be negative or chaotic places at times.
Family and friends, while they may love and care about you, may not have the kind of knowledge required to provide you meaningful support and insight on your journey.
And then there are other times where we may find ourselves alone at a crossroads in our lives and professional support may be the only good option.
Though it is your life, but you can’t do it all alone. Just like a baby needs to parents until he or she gets to a certain age, so it is in life. You need all the positive help you can get to be the best you can be. KEEP PUSHING! You will get there.
