Pain & Struggles of Life - Challenge Yourself

Self Assessment of Life Struggles

In the last few months I’ve been trying to figure out the all-in-one answer to all of my pondering questions and problems of life but realize that there is no all-in-one answer. I’ve been struggling through many different issues and try to fix them all at once to make my life perfect, without struggle, without any problems but I’m starting to realize that life will always have problems but how will you over come it?

Some people, including myself, deal with it by numbing the reality with addictions whether it be drugs, alcohol, sex, or whatever self inflicting actions that will numb the hard times but this is not the route one should take, for obvious reasons.  During these times you are trying to construct your life not destruct it, so start building. I keep telling myself that I just have to get through it, no matter how difficult it may be for one day everything will be okay and I can look back at this time of my life as another lesson learned.

    Practice, practice, practice! At the end of the day, knowing is not enough. I disagree with your comment – we were all born out of struggle so life will be that way. “Struggles” are mere reflections of being lost. You’ve have missed the mark. As human being we are taught how to make others happy from the time we are born until adulthood. There is nothing wrong with helping others but you have to be whole first. I would suggest you take a look at your life and ask yourself, am I happy? If the answer is no, ask yourself, what can you do to change it? You don’t need to have the answer right away, be patient and let it come to you.

    You commented that you wanted to be close to God. I believe the meaning of being close to God is living your best life and your truth. Meaning, you have to do what makes your happy at all times.

    Life lessons are an ongoing process – so “getting though it” is not enough, you need to be present at all time. Present means, being aware of the issue and asking yourself in the moment, is there anything i can do to change this situation? If yes, do the right action for that moment. If no, let it go or write it down that way you can come back to it when you’ve come up with an answer.

    P.s. Starting today, either write down or say out loud ten things that you’re grateful for every morning before you get our of bed.
