What Do You Do When You Going Through Tough Times?

We're all in this together going through tough times, things that should have stopped us that we didn’t think we could go on and we wonder how we made it through that tough time.

In life, everyone will face some difficult moments at unexpected times. This is normal as our life journey is not a straight line, there will be ups and downs. However, what we can do is to learn how to get through these difficult times with a brave heart and a courageous spirit.

Maybe you are burdened with the memories of the people you’ve loved and lost. Maybe you are pulled down by the things you’ve had back in the good old days or maybe you are weighed down by your failures, by the things you did but did not work out the way you wanted them to.

God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted above what you are able but will with the temptation also make the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.

When we need some form of support, God sometimes sends us people who would be channels of His grace. Sometimes, it is God Himself who directly gives it to us.

There comes a time when you must leap of faith when you can’t understand with your mind everything that is happening, especially what is happening in the world

Remember as chaotic as it can seem during tough times your inner strength is more important than ever.

Feeling good about yourself is what will give you the strength to make it through the tough times, and even tougher critics.

Everyone’s got a wound, a hurt and a deprivation of some sort, but you can’t continue to live life by always clinging to that hurt that holds you back. Sometimes you got to accept things as they are and just do the things that are still within your power to change. It’s an absolute fact that what we focus on is what we get.

God often closes the wrong doors for us so that we can enter the right one. Hence, rejections and opportunities that have seemingly been blocked may indeed be blessings in disguise that you should be thankful for. It’s always the most challenging times that carry the most growth.

You are still on time to reward yourself for being able to come so far. In tough and challenging times, you are the person to look after yourself and save the dreams that are hiding inside you. You deserve this:-))

Gratitude has allowed me to push forward past obstacles, given me the courage to move even when failure felt real and there were no signs of success. And it has propelled me into a life better than I could have possibly imagined. Counting your blessings is a good daily success habit yes, even during the tough challenging times of life.

Things that I’m grateful for is that the hard times I’ve experienced prepared me and shaped me for the amazing things to come.

That failures and challenges didn’t stop me from pushing forward.

That God gave me a burning desire to be more, achieve more and help people.

A child oftentimes seems more courageous than older people because he hasn’t been hurt as much. His hope is full of all the wonderful things he feels he can still do. His memory is not yet burdened with failures and doubts.

But the more courageous one is the person who rises despite his many falls. It is being able to go on despite the hurt and to move forward despite losing much of his hope.

When one is trapped between his approaching enemies the demons of the mind and a dead-end leading only to a vast open sea, his hope is almost nil. But if he could still pray and believe that even there, God can save him and take away, he has already achieved victory and much courage.

Let's build up courage and strength with the 5 quotes below.

1) All power is within you; you can do anything and everything. Believe in that, do not believe that you are weak; do not believe that you are half-crazy lunatics, as most of us do nowadays. You can do anything and everything, without even the guidance of anyone. Stand up and express the divinity within you.

2) When something is important enough, you do it even if the odds are not in your favour.

3) The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, worry about the future, or anticipate troubles, but to live in the present moment wisely and earnestly.

4) When you make up your mind to do good things, you will accomplish them if you use dynamic willpower to follow through. No matter what the circumstances are, if you go on trying, God will create how your will shall find its proper reward.

5) Do not wait; the time will never be ‘just right.’ Start where you stand, and work with whatever tools you may have at your command, and better tools will be found as you go along.

You might think that you’re not able to handle tough situations, but you are. Everyone has been through difficult moments in their lives and you are no exception. Think about what you have gotten through so far. None of it has crushed you; you are still standing. You are strong and capable of getting through whatever life throws at you, and it doesn’t hurt to remind yourself of that truth during your daily affirmations.

Keep reading this Affirmation repeatedly:

  • Life is getting better all the time!

  • Each day my thoughts become more and more positive

  • It will make sense one day.

  • Challenges help me stretch and grow.

  • I am learning to trust myself.

A few points to remember when going through tough times:

  • When you are in tough times, it’s not the time to hide and focus on what else can go wrong.

  • It’s easy to let fear overcome you. And that wouldn’t make you a weak person.

  • Keep your inner strength, stay positive. If you allow yourself to shrink on the inside (and I know that’s easier said than done), that will only compound your fear and panic further

  • Take time to appreciate the positive, to speak the positive, to share hopeful dreams, to cheer on others, to embrace those you love, to be thankful.

  • No matter what obstacle or problem you are facing at the moment, have faith in God and yourself, that you will overcome it and see better days ahead. Also, take time to ask God for Strength and Courage when Praying.

  • In everyday life struggles, sometimes all you need are simple words to mend your broken heart and heal your soul.

  • This is not easy but it always possible to stay strong, build up your strength and courage so you can get over tough times.

  • Sometimes, all we need are simple words of encouragement or to make a decision and stand up for ourselves.

  • Most importantly, be reminded that to always have faith in God no matter what happens, know that He is always there for us and we can always count on Him to help us get through the tough times.

  • It's so easy to get caught up worrying about the future or regretting the past. Instead of doing that, why not focus on appreciating the now. Everything that has happened in the past has led you to become who you are today. These experiences have shaped you to become the person you are today. Embrace it and use your learnings to become the best possible version of yourself.

  • Some lessons have to come the hard way, but the experience is the best teacher.

  • No matter how negative a person or an experience is, there is always a positive side to it, we can always learn something from it.

  • Some may say that life is a long and confusing journey ahead and we will need all the guidance we can. But remember, that we also learn as we go along. For all our past mistakes, we can take them as lessons.

  • In life, if you are not willing to risk the usual, you will have to settle for the ordinary. Remember that it's never too late to make a difference. So, we should strive to improve ourselves today!

  • Taking risks shows confidence, it means you are willing to learn. And the lessons you take with you can put you on an important new path. Success is pursued and you won't achieve your dreams by playing it safe. The biggest risk is not taking any risk at all.

I hope that this blog can serve as a small bright spot when you going through tough times.

Wishing you only the best always!!!
