I stumble... I fall... When can I get up and back again? There are times that seems my life is tumbling down and everything that was beautiful is turning dark and ugly. I know there are point in our lives that we feel defeated and everything that we do doesn't have value at all. More worse, when you are down and lonely it doesn't happen one time in a day. It could ruin your entire week and all the things you knew you can handle, will be put into waste. How can you go on when everything seems not right? Thanks in advance and Happy Lotting!

Hi danitykane: thanks for mention these kind of things that happens in everyone's life and we have to deal with them for being happy. I think that you have to think clear and remove all negative beleives. Somedays you think that everything goes wrong and even that there's no way things will get better. Well that's not true, if we trust in God, if we look in our lives, how we have found the power to solve these issues. Thanks for your discussion and remember taht there's always an option to take and that maybe we think everything is in darkness. Well that is not true. You can count on your parents, on your friend and most important you have to count on God.

Hi star! wow! very well said. I was moved with the words that you said and yes I almost forgot about "HIM". I am so silly. God is always with us every time we are feeling down and lonely. I should trust Him more. Thank you my friend!

All we need to do is to trust in God. And yes, we always have options in life. Learn from our mistakes and take away all your positive energy. PRAY. And remember that there's alway light at the end of a tunnel.

We all fall sometimes. I have many struggles myself and have battled depression, too. The only way I get through it is to find ways to change my mindset and to cheer myself up. When you're in a gloomy mood, you're the only person who can get yourself out of it. I refuse to give up on anything so let's just say I am that stubborn that I don't give in to my miseries. When I am upset, I usually work out because exercise is a natural way to combat stress and negativity. Then, I do the things that I enjoy to cheer myself up. I go on because I refuse to let life take over me. I should be the one taking over my life.

Hello danitykane, These things normally happen to everybody. We're hurt, in pain, and like what you said sometimes not only once in a day or a week truth to tgh saying "when it rains,it pours" isn't it? Be strong and keep the faith! Always think that there are others who are in much worst situation than you. And always remember that there are lessons to learn from these experiences! God bless!Ingat!

During that point of life, what we need is GOD. Pray. Surely, you'll find answers. Lay all of your burdens to GOD. Cast all your cares to HIM. Leave everything with GOd. And have trust. Be strong. There's a great reason why that thing is happening. Stay in touch with family. Enjoy life with them.

Of course, if things don't go the way I wanted it, I fell so upset and would take time to get over it. I takes may time to let it sink in into my nerves and then, think of ways on how can move away from it. One thing to consider is to think that not all things are under our control. All we need is do actions to correct them as much as we can. These are but challenges in our lives that we have to face and make us a better person. :-) hope this helps.

Hi, when this happens to me, will make me feel really frustrated, this put me in a hard situation that I can't handle it, and I will call my friends, and talk to them about this, they will always give me some advices, maybe some of the advices are not helpful, but if you talk to others, and feel somebody else is really care about you and want to help you, that feeling is great, and I jsut believe everything will gonna be Ok.

Hi sridharsahu and danitykane: that's usually my frist reaction but afetr all you must think that this is not the answer. Actually if you just get frustrated thinking over and over again the reason that makes you think life it's not right you won't find a solution. It's necessary that we stop and think about what we can do, where we can get the answer and ask for advices. There's no problem without a solution. Thanks for posting and keep mylotting.

I put my trust in God, and have faith he has a plan for me, and this is just my test, until he reveals it to me.

Well, I think we all go thru and experience this one from time to time. I think it is part of our learning and growing process for many, and unfortunately a way of life. The main thing we can do, is learn to work thru these, and find ways to make the Best out of it as well. For me this often means learning to put my Trust in God more believing in the end no matter what happens that things will be for the best. I know it is not easy but in time I know it was all worth it as well.

Hi danity, yeah everyone has their ups and downs. The important thing is to know life really isnt that bad. Sometimes we make a storm in a glass of water. There is always someone who is having an even worse time than you.

You need to get right back up right after you fall. There is no point languishing on your fall. You cannot achieve anything with that. All you are going to do is to make a bad thing worse. Champions do not mean that they always win. It means that they never quit. It means that they know exactly how to bounce right back. They do not let a setback ruin every other opportunity. Things will not always go your way so you should be able to adapt to what life throws your way.

It is human thing to stumble and fall and it is very easy for us to do that. The really hard part is how to move forward. Don't forget that life is not a walk in the park but look how you've survived each time you fall. You are still breathing, feeling life and for sure feeling that you are still loved. Think of all the good things that you have and don't sulk in one corner thinking of the bad things that happened and the things that you don't have for the moment.Past is past and let bygones be bygones now.Focus on the positive things around you.Wether you get up and start moving your life has to move on.It is all up to you if you will lead it to succeed or take another fall again. It is your call. God bless. :-)

Hi danitykane! I TOO HAVE COME ACROSS TIME WHEN EVERYTHING TURNS OUT IN WRONG WAY. I HAVE A SHORT TEMPER AND GET ANGRY EASILY. BUT IN SUCH SITUATION, WE CAN LEARN SO MANY THINGS INSTEAD OF LOSING. KEEP YOUR MIND STRONG AND YOU CAN GET THROUGH IT.
