As we live, we learn and evolve as human beings, and unfortunately we learn the most from hard experiences rather than the positive ones. Some of the toughest situations you go through can teach you the most about yourself and transform you into a better person.
You can even be thankful for the experience, but you would never have believed it if someone told you that at the time. No matter how big or small the problem is, try to learn the lesson it is teaching you; the lesson will be there waiting for you to uncover it.
If your relationship, for example, falls apart, you might discover that this relationship was just a training ground, so that you are ready for your next one. Try to be a good student of life, knowing that all experiences are necessary. The story of what happened does not really count in the end, it is what we learn that matters.
It can be incredibly tempting to close down from family and friends, when faced with adversity. Isolation may feel like the right solution during a hard time, but it can be a slippery pathway into the depths of depression; you may even develop a belief that you are being a burden.
Remember we need people in our lives, especially when things are getting tough. The true life raft for us is our loved ones; they can lift our spirits in times of strife. It is of great importance to surround yourself with positive minded friends and family members who will be there to listen and reassure you.
They can help you find a solution and focus on the future instead of the past. We all need someone to lean on and to have a laugh with as we work our way through the mire.
