Life is filled with good and tough times. As much as we’d like to be happy all the time, experiencing the good and having things go our way, certain situations that are difficult to deal with come with the life experience.
Be it a break-up with a partner or a friend, a failure, job loss or loss of a loved one, difficulties are things that are unavoidable, but how you deal with them makes all the difference. Psychologists advise that the best investment you can make in your mental and emotional health is to deal with any childhood issues that you might have. This enables you to deal with the present difficulty, and not be shrouded with past difficulties that can bring up additional hurt, anxiety and resentment.
Key things to remember is to accept things you cannot change and try as best as you can to pick up the pieces and move on with your life, and to limit time with toxic people who may heighten your already strained emotions of fear, anxiety and depression.
