People always talk about life being an uphill battle, and sometimes I agree. Sometimes I feel like nothing is easy, everything I do takes more effort than the last time. I also feel that some people have it so much easier. In some situations, this could be true. Life can be hard to deal with. But I think most of the time, it’s me looking in from the outside and seeing what I want to see.
Your attitude and energy plays a large role in this too. If you constantly tell yourself how hard you have it, or how bad your life is, then it’s going to be bad. Simple. It’s just how your mind, or the universe or whatever you believe in works. negativity breeds negativity.
Some of the best advice I can give if you’re facing an uphill battle, is to first throw out the idea that it’s all about you. We ALL have hard times. Good wouldn’t feel good without bad. It’s just something you have to deal with.
Second, be persistent. Feeling like you’re in the midst of an uphill battle can just mean that you’re almost there. By the time you realize it’s a bit of a struggle, the project you’re working on is probably close to being done. So you may just have to be tenacious and persistent to get the job done.
Finally, ask for help if you need it. If you really feel like your in a slump that you can’t get out of on your own ask others for help. This may mean going to a professional. Always put your health first, especially if you really can’t deal with what’s been presented to you.
