Moving forward when it seems too hard

Sometimes our struggles can seem bigger than we can handle.  Perhaps you had a sudden loss in your career, health, finances, or relationship and getting through it has been difficult.  Or perhaps you’ve been enduring a struggle for a long time and it doesn’t seem like the situation will ever improve.  Here’s 5 ways to help you get through it.

  1. Acknowledge your feelings. You may feel grief, frustration, or anger. You may be feeling sadness, shame, or regret.  You may find yourself feeling a little better one day, and then feel a little worse the next.  Know that it’s okay to feel the emotions you are feeling and allow yourself to experience it.
  2. Remember how strong you are.  You’ve experienced tough times before and got through it.  You will get through this too.  Everything you’ve gone through in the past has made you stronger and more resilient.
  3. Be kind to yourself.  Treat yourself with empathy and understanding during this difficult time.  Do whatever is necessary to take good care of you as you go through the process.
  4. Reach out to others.  You’re not alone.  If you need time to yourself or would like time to deal with your struggles on your own, it’s perfectly okay.  Know that if you need help in any way, it’s courageous to ask for help.
  5. Believe that everything is happening a reason.  It may be hard to believe right now, but there’s something positive about going through this difficulty. Know that things will get better in time and that this too shall pass.

You are a strong person.  You are capable.  You will endure this.  Be good to yourself.
