How do you deal with the trials in your life? Do you just give up? Do you fight with all your might? Do you deal with them alone? Do you need friends/family's support?

laydee, Good question! There are times that I feel like life itself is a trial and maybe it is. I face things head on and actually "allow" the man I love to help me deal with them. Did you notice that I said I "allow" him to? Prior to the last 7 years of my life I have handled anything that life throws at me, on my own. So, this turned me into a totally independent woman and even fitting in the love we share took some relinquishing of selfish ways on my part. It feels good to relax and know that I don't have to handle everything on my own anymore.

Well if i'm so hopeless, i just face the music and see what the outcome then receive it with open arms no matter how unpleasant it is. Sometimes we are left with no choice and all we have to do is to follow the tide. It's like giving up but only to rise again whenever we had even just a thread of chance. From there, i start a new lease on life and move on. I do need my family's support of course but sometimes i'd rather fix it alone because i can think well that way without involving them.

I guess that's easier said than done. It takes a great deal of faith to look at a problem straight in the eye.

What is a trial? Is it a court trail where a judge hears the advocate for some cirminal case or what? Sorry but I don't know what a trial is? Is it the problems which I am facing in my life? Curiosity never ends for Sanuanu!

I try not to just give up. I look to friends and family for advice and I go to my Pastor for help. I rely on my faith and pray through the hardship and trials I may be going through. My faith has seen me through many hardships that I wouldn't have been able to make it through without it.
