we all cross the road of adversity, failure and tough times... when everything seems to bring you down, when things are not in place.. most of all when life is all painful.. what this one thing.. or person or emotion or trait that holds you back together again? something you hold on to, not to give up, die or commit suicide.. I want to hear from real people how did they ever survive the most painful chapter of their lives... Thanks^_^

As I read your title, it reminded me of Kitchie Nadal's song!;) Well for almost everything, I always hold on to love and trust. The people behind me, friends and family, knows who I am. When I feel like the world is crumbling down, when it seems like the world is so wicked that it makes we want to crawl, I turn to all of them and seek for their warm embrace!;)

my family.I live for them.When all fails and had gone crazily out of control,i will just think of them.My present is what makes all important.So whenever i'm feeling lifeless,unable to fight on..i will just think of them.They are my pillar of support.

Well,I think throughout our life time,we sometimes have to face those tough things. Whenever I feel diappointed or depressed,I usually turn to my attitude and my family and my friends for help. I always think we should be very optimistic and get the right things or knowledge from our experiences especially those which are suffering. It's also good to talk with a friend so that sb could listen to you and help you with some viewpoints that you couldn't see cause you were invloved in it. Any pain will go away one day,it's just the problem of time. We should look ahead and lead a happy life:-)

Every atom of the universe may crumble under pressure, and i may to a certain degree, but under no circumstance i think of commiting sucide or dying.. But i always have a stern and firm Faith in God, and i trust Him to the core, and so all the misseries will vanish in times to Come.

Good day, this is a nice question, in times like this, i just hold on to the good memories of the past, talk to my friends, bar hopping, i bear in my mind that trials are not forever, thus this makes as a good person, am an emotional person, its really hard for me to cope up some emotional problems, but i dont lose hope, trials and failure are normal in our lives..

My faith I guess.I do pray and try to stay optimistic.Eventhough I am not a very couregeous person, during the difficult times I don't know from where, but I do get a lot of strength to face it.May be from the realisation that "whatever happens you have to face it and live your life".

We know that life is not always easy. There are always going to be tough and tougher times. And when things doesn't go as I have planned and the bad days comes rolling down to me then the only thing that holds me is my boyfriend. whenever I fail on something that is really important to me then he is the one who consoles me. He is the one who's always there and is ready to help at any cost. He is the one with whom I cry all night. It's him who's been holding me all this time. And I'm really thankful to him.
