Overcoming Difficult Life Challenges
Because of my extremely troubled childhood, I am continually asked, “How does one overcome tragedy or difficult life challenges?” Without knowing the particular details of someone’s situation, my generic answer usually has something to do with the reclaiming of a positive emotional state by taking responsibility, forgiveness, and letting go.
That answer, while truthful, regularly doesn’t suffice, and the person will inevitably respond, “Yeah, but…How?” This opens the door for a more detailed explanation, which I’m happy to give.
My first suggestion is to find or create a supportive environment (which can include, but is not limited to, family and friends).
After my parents were murdered, I was very fortunate to be placed into the custody of my maternal grandmother. She provided a loving and nurturing environment that allowed me to grow and flourish after witnessing such a heinous incident.
In your case, you may find it helpful to locate a support group or an organization that can help you work through your issues, or you may want to link up with a productive group of like-minded people to have as a social outlet. You can find groups of almost any interest you can think of at Meetup.com. I’m not suggesting you find a Meetup group to dump your problems. I am suggesting that, as you work through your challenges, you have other outlets so that you don’t allow your problems or current life situation to consume you. You can also create a supportive environment by cleaning, organizing, and beautifying your immediate environment in some way. Maybe you can buy some fresh flowers or put up a photograph or picture that makes you smile and place the objects where you will regularly see them. Although these may seem like trivial suggestions, these simple ideas will start to move the mind and body toward overcoming your challenging situation.
My biggest emotional breakthroughs have happened through forgiveness, letting go, and taking responsibility. Believe me when I tell you, it took a lot of work for me to come to a place where I could forgive the man that killed my mother.
