For Those Whose Life Is A Struggle

This post is dedicated to everyone who has ever had to struggle for anything in their lives and is continuing to struggle whether it be financially, socially or personally.  I have been through many struggles and challenges in my life so far and know that there is more around the corner each and every year.  Sometimes I do get depressed about what has happened and what may happen in the future, and sometimes I get stressed and depressed when in the middle of a difficult time.  When this occurs I always try to find some common ground to help even the odds, part of this comes in my always wanting to balance the odds.

When I am struggling financially I often will seek out blogs, charities and deliberately go read about the struggles of millions of people who are so much worse off then I am, this will make me sit back and as any kind of human being realize that I am being fickle in my complaints and should be more thankful I have all that I have as many others do not have as much as I.  For those of you who struggle to get Christmas gifts for your children, or to pay your mortgage, cars or are just out of a job, you can look at it this way.  Unemployment in the United States is considered wealth by some 3rd world countries where they literally starve to death their bellies distended from lack of food and nutrition.  People do come back from difficult times all it takes is hard work, patience and belief that you can work your way out of a rut.  Pull together with family and friends, and if you are one of the many losing your job in this economy then do your best to put yourself on Government retraining programs, Financial and Health assistance programs.  Sign up for everything you can and leverage it to help get you back on your feet.

For those of you who are struggling socially or personally due to self confidence issues or legitimate medical problems don’t despair, there is hope yet for everyone.  Medical issues do have treatments in most cases and all else can be overcome by sheer personality and force of will.  If you are shy or depressed due to being overweight for example, you may have tried to do anything including diets, working out and taking diet pills but instead of focusing on these things you should instead focus on being happy with who you are first.  One thing I have seen in this world is that people come in all shapes, sizes and colors and there is somebody for everyone.  For those who are afraid to put themselves out for the public viewing, you have only one life to live it is better to take a risk and take a chance, than to do nothing at all with it.  One example is if you are artistic, then explore and release your art so others may see.

Everyone remember that we all live on this world just one time and it is up to you to get the most out of your life, you can believe their is another life after this one or that there is an afterlife and even if there is that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try to make the most out of this one.  Life is too short to be beaten back and down, rise up and think about what you can do to improve your life or at least develop a better more positive way of thinking so that you aren’t suffering mentally.

These are just some of my insights and thoughts, I can only hope that they help inspire some of you.

    This is a very inspirational post that I hope finds the homes of the many people struggling during this economy. I try to leave encouraging words as often as I can when I find a blog mentioning a loss of a job, depression, anxiety, Christmas blues and the like. I hope they find their way to your blog also.
