My head is banging for the reason that there are a lot of negative circumstances intruding my very tiring life. I tend to fight them but because they are too many,they just won over me that easily.Arghh.it sucks. I felt like my coping mechanisms can't handle it anymore. Is there any reason for to smile even having that damn problems?

well, i seemed to looked at you in a different way. you were smiling, but deep inside i know there is something wrong also.. i dont know of your coping mechanism, but for sure, it also will fail you. no one has all the strength to stay intact when facing life's greatest challenges. no one has all the strength and face the world without shedding their tears. and no one has all the strength to stand alone. no one.. and with your question, well you have all the reasons to be happy. why? because it is just one way of reminding you that God is still around. He wanted you to know HIM.. that amidst the life's unending struggles, HE is really around. maybe as of now you had forgotten Him, or that You are happy because you have no problems and that you are tested right now.. it is all part of the test gold, to prove of HIS presence in every season, in good times and in bad.. and finally, you have all the reasons to be happy even when there are lots of problem.. i mean, who does not have any?.. hehe..sharing to you Matthew 11:28-29

I already thought about doing that,but sometimes problems just cover it. Now I will try not to focus on my problems and rather try to see the brighter side of everything.Thanks for the response!

You should be happy no matter what circumstances you may encounter. You are given such problems because God knows that you can handle it. If you will surrender, you're a losser. Don't think you're tired. The more you think, the more you become exhausted. If you think your problems are too difficult to solve, ask for advices from your friends but be very careful because some advies may not not be good for you. Have a nice day!

Be strong keep your head up and try to look at the positive side of everything..if there is one? Sometimes the only problems are the ones we create for ourselfs try not to hyperfocous on all the bad things right now, Just look how everyone in america thinks they have it so hard and are barley getting buy..they should go to africa for a week and come back then see who has it so bad. To quote 2pac "If you can make it through the night there's a brighter day" I hope things start getting better for you soon and wish you the best of luck with whatever life throws your way.

Dear mary... First of all life is another name for struggle..... Problems keep coming now and then ....and even we have new problem in our life every day. Even I have many problems in my life . But my attitude to face them is face one by one and one should always remember that they will never end...so prioritize your problem and take them one at a time . I know many need address at a time but still you need to prioritize. And give yourself a chance to take rest and recharge for another day.... I think Thats All.... All the best!!! Ganesh
