Problems in life can feel so overwhelming that we doubt our ability to fix them. It is during these moments of doubt that the issue we are facing seems to triple in size, intensity and danger. This causes us to feel trapped in a corner, unable to escape. Often, the problem stays the same, but our perception changes. The longer the problem remains unsolved or the more failed attempts at removing it – the more we perceive the situation to be helpless.
The problems I speak of are everyday problems. Trouble at work, lack of money, school exams, friendship and relationship disputes to name a few. The type of problem which you have a level of control over. Remember – millions of people all over the world are experiencing the same issues as you and many are worse off. When faced with a difficulty, think of it as an opportunity to prove how well you can adapt, resolve, succeed and find happiness during the tough times.
I wanted to share this post to remind everyone that you have the power, even when it feels like you’re at your wit’s end and there’s nothing you can do. Just remember…
“The size of your problems is nothing compared with your ability to solve them. Don’t overestimate your problems and underestimate yourself.”
