Im going through alot right now and I was handeling it all pretty well until yesterday. Im going through relationship struggles which are going to lead to a break up (we live together), deaths (not just one) in the family and major life changes in general. I've been trying to improve my life by dieting and stuff like that, but I feel like my energy level is hitting pretty dang low. How do I get through these rough patches and keep my life on track?

I really don't need to keep track. I remember everything which was rough and hard in life as it's stamped into the back of my mind and although these often come and haunt me. i am happy that i can remember certain things as it makes me closer to those i miss. Kudos ~Joey

In life struggles we all have problems but different faces. I will encourage you to be strong in the Lord, the word of God say when your mother and father forsake you then the Lord will take you in his arms. A relationship gone bad. I had alot of bad brakes in my life and it made me stronger, in time you will heal from your hurts. But you have to trust God in this if the man want to go let him because don't care how much you try to hold on to him his mind is made up to do what he wants. You will still be left with your self- esteem and a peace of mind. You have to come to realize that people come and go out of your life. Sometimes for a reason, season,or for good. So once your heart is pure towards people. You can't avoid the hurt but, you will pass through life with ups and down let no man keep you there because great things are ahead of you. Bigger, better and a brighter future lies in wait for you. Wake up out of your struggles and incourage yourself and watch God frime your life with New relationships who have your interest at heart.

I say the best thing to is to talk to people about what's going on, people who cares to listen. Try to think about good things and work your way up from there. Take it one day at a time, and do stress yourself too much about this because it will affect your health. And there are lots of more important perspectives than that. So just take it easy and as it comes.

that's a good question, I too have lost 2 relatives so far this year. Energy is low, dieting failing, only think I got going for me is my wife and my faith in God and the knowledge all things are temporary.

there's no guarantee on how long and how easy you are going to get through those things. just make sure that you're always with friends and limit the time that you spend alone. when you're alone, things could be maddening. and just like the answer from above, pray. there's no harm in doing it, and it gives you a certain peace of mind.

set your priorites in life... your life is more important then anything else... you cant get beenfits of dieting or anything you are doing right now...until you stay calm and happy. for relationship..best way is talk and sort out who is wrong and where the problem is try to fix it.. if you muttually thinks that now the time is getting it over then just change your path...rather then compromise and stick to tormend relationship its better to move forward and find peace in your life.

I honestly understand what you're going through. I've chosen to spend time praying and then trusting that God cares enough about me to take care of it and see the best end to my situations. I'm sure He'll do the same for you if you start talking to Him.
