Don’t Close the Door on Life. Stay Strong and Survive
It seems like things will be getting worse before they get better. The economy showed signs of recovering in the market today, but the jobless rate hasn’t budged. People are still struggling.
I got an email from an 84 year old man this evening and he said that the last three months have been the toughest in his whole life time. He is 84 years old and struggling financially.
This type of situation has led many people to battle self doubt, anxiety, fear, depression, hopelessness, and all the other usual suspects.
What re we to do? What will happen to all of us if this keeps up? These are questions that many people are asking right now.
Let me give you some thoughts to try to help you through these troubling times:
Don’t ever give up. Remain strong. You will persevere by just decided that nothing can force you to collapse.
Try to enjoy the little things while the economy is faltering. Go to the park. Rent DVDs instead of going to the movies. Buy the store brands instead of the expensive brands.
Make some great home cooked meals that you found in the old recipe book you found on the shelf. If it was good for our elders it still must be good. By cooking your own meals you will save money from not eating out. Have a “family,” meal. That means everyone sitting down at the table at the same time. Actually do some talking. Won’t that be different?
Go one a vacation with in driving distance. You can just as much fun somewhere closer as you can hundreds of miles away.
I realize that these aren’t exciting solutions. What we probably really need to talk about is how to cope in this troubled world.
My book, Signs of Hope: Ways to Survive in an Unfriendly World, talks directly to you as readers about how to do that very thing. It shares ways to fight anxiety, fear, depression, self doubt, hopelessness, etc.
