Do you know at your worst moments of reckoning you can think of at least one other person who has a worse situation. You can say to yourself, if this person can persevere, then so can I. Do others share this belief?

It might help a little bit, to know someone else has been through something terrible and lived and perserveared in spite of it. Of course there are things in life that are going to be a challenge to get over no matter what. But most of us find a way to cope, and sometimes that person who has been through it is the only one that understands the pain that you are going through.
