In your trying times, avoid blame

In your trying times, don’t lose focus

In your trying times, start rebuilding

In your trying times, practice patience

In your trying times, remain optimistic

In your trying times, see the big picture

In your trying times, prioritize self-care

In your trying times, know who to trust

In your trying times, don’t be influenced

In your trying times, have faith in yourself

In your trying times, stay as calm as possible

In your trying times, don’t act on desperation

In your trying times, learn to laugh at yourself

In your trying times, set goals to solve problems

In your trying times, limit time with toxic people

In your trying times, try to see past the hardship

In your trying times, look at your problem like an obstacle that you need to overcome

Life has so many options on how one can progress, stay at a particular destination for long or even retrogress.

Living a successful life is hailed by a section in society whilst others question your swift progress.

For those who have remained unproductive for long time do have few well-wishers encouraging them of a better day ahead but they are not left the hook by the critics who will tag them as individuals who are valueless in the society.

For those who keep declining have a similar share of the cake as the intermediates. They live a miserable life in society because they feel lonely and unloved.

Tough time makes you very strong both internally and externally. Hard times are like a washing machine, they twist, turn and knock us around, but in the end, we come out cleaner, brighter & stronger than before.

In such a hard moment, meditation or prayer, visualize handing those items over to your higher power and letting them go. Then focus on what you can control, like your self-care, your words, your actions and your decisions.

If you reflect on this for a moment, what you will typically find is that the vast majority of these reasons are actually based on your perspective of the situation. In other words, you are actually aggravating your feelings by thinking a certain way about the situation.

People will at times say and do things that will hurt you. However, often these things have nothing to do with you but are rather based on people’s own insecurities and personal problems.

Given this, it’s imperative that you don’t take things personally, and instead practice detaching yourself from these emotional experiences.
