Have you ever experienced a very bad day in your life,when anything you do or say turns out a disaster.When you just lost your job,your girlfriend dumps you,your rent is due,you can't even afford to buy your usual groceries. Then it dawns on you that you might just want to take your own life...but wait! There is more to life,you can actually think for a moment and rewind back the hands of time to how you ended up in this situation,then it hits you that you need to stand up like a man and face your battle,for only the strong survives.

yes !you are absolutely right!As the saying goes "fortune favours the brave" it is only wise to be brave in difficult situations!We do not know what will happen the next minute because life is so unpredictable!It is always right to be emotionally stable!Good or bad occurings, we should take everything in our stride!We should be like a lotus leaf,which does not allow water to stick on it.Though we are in the ocean of trouble we should not allow it to stick on us!

I truly agree with you. Life is precious & one should learn to live. One bad phase comes in life for every person but one who can face it & live really lives. Losing a job well better awaits you, time to look out. Girlfriend dumps you, she isn't fit for you- that's the way to live coz' one who understands you wont dump you, so waste to spend time on such things. Face every obstacle but never give up. once the bad is gone surely good phase arrives.

Yes I have had a few bad days like that. And felt the same. The truth of the matter is is that I would never take my life. I am a leader to many who know me and to admit weakness would be added insult to injury. I will ask for help from someone if I need to. Not before I have done everything I can do to rectify the situation myself and to understand how I got there to begin with. Then I will have helped myself and learned how to help others avoid that situation or help them out of it if need be. You can only help those who want to help themselves.

Sounds like a country western song played backwards. You get your wife back, your truck back, lol. There is an old saying, it is always darkest before the dawn. If someone hasn't gone through a bad time good for them, but most people I have known have had times that were really bad. Your attitude and, a sense of humor can help alot to get through a bad situation. Also not being afraid to ask for help when you need it.
