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.  In terms of my writing, it may look like that but it’s not always how I feel; but the comment certainly got me thinking.

I am no different to others who deal with issues in their lives. I think it’s the nature of life. There will be times when we struggle, me included. I know it’s important for me to continue to understand and recognise my struggles so that I can work on getting past them. As a child, I found ways to work around what I had to deal with. As an adult, I still do.

I believe that when we don’t speak out or deal with our problems, it hurts us more. I have seen it first-hand. Not necessarily in the short term, because in the short term we cope and find things to keep us busy, but in the longer term as we work to build our lives, our thoughts and our struggles if they’re not dealt with can paralyse us.

I certainly have those days, but I also know that I need to I deal with my thoughts and work through solutions, for me to be able 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 site, absolutely helps.


When other people read, leave posts and share their feelings with me, it helps me (and others too) to know that we’re really not alone in our struggles.

  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.:)
