Suffering is an Inevitable part of life

Suffering is an inevitable part of life. So how do we deal with it in a healthy way?

1. Meet overwhelm head-on.
When we are overwhelmed with a problem, we can become paralyzed. Instead, spring into action. Start overwhelming your struggles with the sheer amount of focus, effort and energy you put into solving them. Repetitive fear can win or rekindled focus can win.
2. Attack on many fronts.
Most people try one thing to solve a problem, and that’s why they fail. Major challenges, frustrations, and problems in our lives demand multiple areas of attack. 

3. Honor the struggle.
Honor it all: the suffering, the challenges, the frustration, the negative emotions, and the things that really freak you out. The challenges are given to test us, to stretch us, to inspire perspective and growth. 

4. Become a peaceful warrior.
Make peace with your struggles. Say, “This is the way it’s supposed to be right now. I’m trying to make it better, but I’m okay with my life.” Accept yourself and every situation as-is, and keep an intention to love yourself even as you strive to improve.

5. Find your faith.
Your struggles have been put before you by divine hand in order to make you pay attention. And if you don’t believe in a divine hand, at the very least see how your suffering can lead you to better appreciate life.

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my
    own blog and was wondering what all is required to get set up?

    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very web smart so I’m not 100% sure.
    Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Wonderful website you have here but I was curious about if you knew of any message boards that cover the same
    topics talked about in this article? I’d really love to be
    a part of online community where I can get feedback from other experienced individuals
    that share the same interest. If you have any recommendations, please let me
    know. Bless you!
