How to overcome life's challenges?

By Nawal

Before I go deep into this interesting subject I’ll give you a brief background to the reason for choosing to write such an article. Whenever we have a positive mindset, something out of blue, will come and affect you negatively. I have always taught myself to be patient and to face problems reasonably.

Recently, I have faced many issues that were hard to manage as they came all together suddenly; bad health, moving to different area, and unfortunately some relatives also became very unwell. It made me feel very down. It has been a difficult phase but my friends' help and support and my persistence have given me a big hope and prompted me to overcome these obstacles.

The point is that there are effective ways to overcome any problem and stay positive:

  • Make a plan, because nobody knows what is going to happen in the future.
  • Remember always that it is fine to feel pain sometimes.
  • Ask for help from friends, professionals and relatives, so you don’t feel that you are alone.
  • Accept support because you have to be open to get the help that you need.
  • Help and support others when they are down.
  • Do not give up.
  • look after yourself physically and mentally.
  • Do not work too hard.

Life is short, enjoy it and love every single lesson so that you can go on.
