Life is full of difficult situations that must be overcome in order to move forward. Some situations can be more complicated than others, but at the end of the day, it will be your tenacity and your willpower that will help you move forward. Even in the most adverse situations, you can bring out the positive parts of what happens to you, for this reason, it will always be a good idea to put all your good energy on your well-being.

Next, we are going to tell you about some situations that may feel difficult in life, but in reality, if you know how to handle them well, you can ensure that everything in your life continues to flow on a good path.

Complications in social connection

Social connection and having friends by your side to laugh, experience life and love is a necessary component of life. Human connection has been found to be as important as food and shelter to an overall healthy life. Friends, however, come and go. 

There is a healthy place of acceptance in human relationships, and sometimes putting people aside to continue to make room for new growth is something you have to do. While this change is difficult, acceptance and letting go is a process in life that sometimes teaches us how to be more adaptable. When you find out that the time for a friendship is over , don’t be afraid to let go of that hand you’ve been holding. You will find growth.

A move

Whether you are moving to a house on the same street, to another city or to another country, the impact of the move is the same. Moving around is stressful because there is so much unknown. The simplest tasks, like shopping for food and gas, become daunting because everything is new, and navigating the novelty can increase your level of discomfort. 

Instead of viewing a move as scary change, accept the challenges. You have the opportunity to learn about yourself and grow more when you are uncomfortable. Look at this move as a way to add the knowledge of a completely new city map to your knowledge bank.  You get to try new restaurants, explore new places, and find yourself.  Enjoy it and realize that the changes are only temporary: you will soon get used to it and feel settled in your new city and home.

Job transitions

Job transitions are tough. Even if you were the one who left the company. In the work environment, social systems are already in place with who’s in charge, personalities that are in sync, and people’s boundaries have already been set. 

It’s hard to be the new kid in the new company for these reasons alone. But as you navigate the components of what your new job entails, you can also become a piece of the puzzle that is your new work environment. So enjoy this process. Because in time there will be a new “new child”, and you will have found your place in the system that is the perfect fit for you.

Injuries

Suffering an injury is a difficult change to overcome at any age. Regardless of how or where you hurt yourself, all bets are off regarding your daily gym routine from then on. When working with brain-injured patients in the rehab setting, it is common to see frustration in the body’s ability to return to normal. 

Many of the patients end up frustrated because their recovery and physical abilities are not progressing as quickly as they wish. However, it is important to recognize slow and steady performance during recovery. Obviously, listening to your body is the most important component of injury recovery. Many people in these circumstances keep a diary to keep track of their recovery process, because on bad days when your knee is holding you back and won’t let you walk as much or your shoulder still causing pain , you can take out their performance diary. Sometimes having evidence of the progress you have already made is motivation to keep moving forward in recovery.
