Thinking Positive When Times are Tough

Life is never meant to be easy. I have a 4 day test next week. I use crutches and both my wrists are sprained. It is painful to walk alot. still I keep in my heart everyday what matters the most. A lot of people look down onme like they are better than everyone else. No one is better than anyone else. I could just give up completely and be so negative that all I will ever do is fail. No matter what anyone is going thru, think positive and good things will happen. Once, I thought, how much worse can it get? I got my answer on my way to a job interview. If someone refuses to change, that is all on them. I do not judge anyone. There are unseen forces at work. It does not matter if you believe that! It is true. Everyone's life is pre-written. You can change things in your life. I have. I need to have surgery. Everyone has problems to face daily. I did lose my home. I stayed in a shelter and had things stolen from me. I do believe "What goes around, comes around." Steal from someone, how much will you lose doing doing that? Threaten anyone and it comes back to you. Everything everyone does and says comes back to each person sooner or later. Believe in God and Jesus, without them, no one would be here.

a pleasant day desertrose16, indeed your main topic says it all. thus, in tough times, its no matter how tough life is, we must still think positively. as the many people says, its no point thinking the negative ones since it will just hinder the good and positive vibration that may come. aside from that, if a small negative thing happen, for sure, there will be a bigger and good positive result. perhaps, it was only destined that we walk on the rough road so to realize how beauty life is.

I like what you said about walking on rough road for us to realize the beauty of life. Everything is a sacrifice. We can't always have what we wanted and even if we have what we wanted, it is not necessarily what we needed and sometimes it is not what makes us happy. Triumph is greatly achieved if we put a lot of effort in reaching it. What a sweet victory it would be!

Hello desertrose! I have high regard especially for people like you who unknowingly inspire people like me. You are right, keeping a positive outlook in life will bring only good things and it is up to us on how we will use if for our advancement. people who always look for someone to blame are the ones who are weak for they do not know how strong they are and yet they chose to be weak. I salute you for always keeping up a brave face to life's trials. God bless.
