I really liked this. I also think it’s helpful to view life as difficult. This means accepting you will have to experience sadness, anger, confusion and stress in your life. I believe that by understanding that life is supposed to contain these elements is actually what makes it easy. Indeed, adversity is a lot easier to manage if you come to accept that it is supposed to exist. Whenever I find myself in a situation where I am experiencing what I mentioned above, I am able to tell myself that this is part of life and it’s supposed to be hard. I also recognize that I am not alone. Everyone experiences all of these things as well. In fact, one of my favorite quotes is: “May your tears come from laughing, you find friends worth having, with every year passing, they mean more than gold. May you win but stay humble, Smile more than grumble and know when you stumble, You’re never alone.” This always keeps me resilient and optimistic.
