Working through difficulties

Someone once told me that my blogs showed my ability for me to be able to work through my life with ease. It may look like that but it’s not always how it goes, but the comment did get me thinking.

I am no different to anyone else. There will be times when I struggle too. I have always felt it important for me to continue to understand and recognise my struggles so that I work on getting past those. I dealt with anxiety, stress and fear as a child, it was massively important that I found ways to work around what I had to deal with. As an adult, it’s what I continue to do.

That when we don’t speak out or deal with our problems, it hurts us more. Not always in the short term, because in the short term we cope, but in the longer term, our thoughts and struggles can lead to low moments or bouts of depression.

I certainly have my down days, but I also need to work through solutions, for me to feel better about what I deal with. I find that writing, talking and being honest about my feelings are the best way for me to work through things. Expressing my feelings on my website brings order to my life.

When other people read, leave responses and share their feelings with me, it helps me and others too to know that we’re really not alone.

  1. I agree with you. Not dealing with problems sometimes makes it worse.

    If you deal with problems you will feel like you have taken control of the situation and it will make you feel stronger in the long run.

    1. You’re right Randy. We will feel more in control the more we deal with our problems. Experience of dealing with problems also give us that. I hope the Diary helps you too.

  2. I definitely need to work on things better.

    I just don’t have the guts to confront my problems when I should and deal with them in my own time, but eventually they get dealt with.

    It does help me to read your posts. They give me confidence that I lack sometimes. Thank you Ilana.

    1. Thanks Lisa. Maybe reading more of my blogs will give you even more confidence. Thank you for your kind words of me.:)
