Life can sometimes suck.
You might be thinking, “You don’t have to tell me, I already know.”
Your life might feel hard. Harder than you think it needs to be. Perhaps, you’re wondering what you did to deserve the hand you’ve been dealt. Maybe you find yourself often asking, “Why me? Why the HELL me?”
Maybe, you’ve lost your job, broken up with your significant other or are facing a medical challenge. Sometimes, unfortunately, when it rains it pours, and you might be dealing with everything at once. That would be an extra dose of suckiness you especially don’t think you deserve.
When we’re facing a hard time and life feels challenging, it’s easy to look at other people’s lives and compare our situation to theirs. You might think, “Everyone else isn’t having to go through what I’m facing, why do I have to?”
Here’s the thing I want you to remember…I don’t know why you’re going through a hard time right now. I don’t know why life tossed you a difficult challenge.
But, does it really even matter?
Life can definitely be hard, I get it. I’ve had my share of challenging moments. What I’ve come to realize is there are different seasons in life.
Some seasons are good.

Some seasons are great.
Some seasons suck so much it knocks the wind out of you and takes your breath away.
When this happens, what do you? How do you handle difficult times? How do you move forward when you can barely keep your head above water?
In those moments, when life feels really hard, you have two options.
Option 1: you can bask in your anger and/or sadness and give into it. You can allow yourself an extra long pity party and fall into a deep dark hole. This takes up a lot of time and energy, but it’s still an option. It’s on the table.
Option 2: you can decide to move forward. One day at a time, one step at a time. It might be hard. It might feel impossible. You might question if you’re ever going to push through and feel happy or good again. But, you make yourself.
Can you guess what I recommend?
If you’ve been reading my blog, you’ll know I would absolutely pick Option 2. (By the way, if you haven’t subscribed to Crazy Perfect Life yet, click her to get happy and inspirational thoughts delivered to your inbox for FREE. Why wouldn’t you?)
Whatever you choose, there’s something I want you to remember… the time is going to pass one way or another. What that means, is that you can spend your time being sad and angry or you can try to help yourself feel better.
You must actively DECIDE you can get through whatever you’re dealing with.
Decide to be positive.
Decide to be a glass half full kind of person.
Decide to build yourself up instead of tear yourself down.
Manage your thoughts. Be optimistic. Focus on what you have instead of what you don’t have. Actively deciding that you’re going to get through whatever you’re facing will have a huge impact on your ability to handle your difficult situation. Commit to pushing through the pain and getting to the other side. Allow your self to feel angry and sad, but don’t give into those feelings.
Instead, tell yourself you WILL get through your challenging season.
I know life can sometimes feel impossible and seriously suck. Remember, you have the power to help yourself. It works, I promise.
