You can survive difficult periods in your life. The probability is that you already have. Difficult periods in our lives seem to be a natural course of how life unfolds in the human panorama of events. These challenging phases may include health, income, career, family, friends, spouse, and love relationships.
In other words, just about anything of major concern may be affected. Your emotions during such periods can run from mild to deeply intense. If it is a truly difficult stage in your life, it is likely that the emotions you are experiencing are deep-seated.
Some demanding periods can be life-changing and challenging. A death or transition of someone you deeply love can provoke a devastatingly difficult phase. Similarly, divorce can be like a death to one’s way of life and can bring on an extremely hard interlude. The reality that one comes to know, as one goes through life, is that there will be difficult periods, but how will these hard times be handled or survived? When your emotions are taxed to the limit, which can set up a negative chain reaction affecting you in numerous ways, how do you best survive all that is taking place.?
