What do you do? Do let it slide? Do you stress? Do you stop trying so hard? Or do you Try harder to make it better? What do you do when nothing seems to go well for you in your life? What would you suggest to someone who is struggling? Is your way of getting through hard times effective?

Hi, Sweetatas, sometimes the bad luck come to find me, which I can not change anything about it. I just try to more careful in my daily life and wait for the bad luck gone. I still belive I'll not on back luck forever. It'll gone soon. Just relax,and try to some fun for yourself.

I'm very religious, so of course turning to the Gods is part of my answer. =p Otherwise, I mostly beat the crap out of a punching bag. It makes me feel better, and clears my head of anger over the situation, so I can think things through clearly. If I'm not finding any real solutions to the things that are going wrong, I'll ask my really close friends for a fresh perspective. And when there's just nothing I can do, I laugh. Considering I'm still alive and mostly sane, I think I'm doing okay!

I'm glad you liked my response! I've had plenty of time to think about how to deal with adversity, with my history, but I really do think I'm in good shape all things considered. =p

When this happens to me I tend to go into panic mode for a few hours and then once I have got all my emotions out I sit down and try to think rationally about the situation. I have been in times when I have been up to my neck in debt and really become stressed over it. But whats the point. Luckily something always comes along to sort me out and sometimes I do feel I have someone watching over me. Life is too short to stress for too long. I will always try to find a way to change a situation I do not like and usually this will work or I just ride it out and when I look back months later I wonder why I was ever so stressed in the first place. Time for me is a great healer.

When nothing seems to be going well which never really happens to me, I would remind myslef I have the power to change it. I think positive & that's my outlook on all matters. If something is trying to get the best of my I rise to the occasion & over come it. I'm a man with a great deal of knowhow.
