Default When life gets tough - how do you persevere?

Hi community,

I am currently retraumatized and in the worst shape I have ever been. Trying so hard to stay alive. Could use some advice from the community.

How do you persevere when life gets tough?

Thanks,
HD7970ghz

There's an old saying, "When the going gets tough, the tough get going." I'm not sure how to interpret that. For me, evetually things get better, after I've hammered away at it with everything I can think of. And I've heard people say these worse times do make us tougher. I'm very sorry you are going through such a bad time. Lots of hugs!

When I am overwhelmed, I try to face what is overwhelming me. Once I accept it, it loses its hold over me. Some things that are bothering me take me awhile to figure out what is going on in my brain. Have you ever tried that?

Do you see a counselor? A therapist can help you through this but there are also things you can do for self-care.

Sorry you're in such pain, H. If it makes you feel better, I don't feel very good either.

Sending you many virtual hugs and thoughts... ( )

I'm sorry you are struggling. Basically, when I am in your position, which is fairly often, I just refuse to give up. Just don't quit. Keep fighting. And when it gets to be just too, too much, I go lay down and regroup. It has worked so far. Not sure where you are on the spiritual thing, but I also pray a LOT. It helps me enormously. So, don't give up. Power through it. You can do it. Even if it's super-hard. Sending you positive vibes.

Heart Re: When life gets tough - how do you persevere?

I persevere by...

self-caring
other-caring
believing that "this, too, shall pass"
finding support
taking one day at a time
resting, relaxing, taking breaks
breaking tasks down into manageable pieces
connecting with others who are struggling similarly
