Coping With Life’s Hardships.

I think all of us, at least once or twice, have had a moment where it is very difficult to keep your head above the water or not feel like everything is a bit too much.

But I also think that there are many moments where we don’t realize that – yeah, everything IS getting too much.

Sometimes we try to not even question something being too much to handle because, in reality, we might not really want to face the downfalls of that acceptance.

And even though it could be in all sorts of context, I think these are some handy ways you can try to cope through it instead of avoiding it – because let’s be real. Some of the obstacles of life are very unavoidable.

So here are some ways to deal with it:

  1. Spend your time with the people you love, and/or do something that you love. Okay okay, so I think I put this as a point in one of my other posts, but it is seriously one of the best things you can do to make yourself feel happier in my opinion.

  2. Sadly, you can’t sit around, binge-watching Netflix all day – do something you know will make you feel better! Whether that be having a spontaneous baking session, or going to the gym or for a run, whatever you know feels good and makes you feel happy will for SURE, make coping a million times percent better.

  3. Talk to someone. Now this one is a little vague but I’m sure you know what I mean. Talking to someone about something that you are struggling to cope with can be so therapeutic and weight-lifting and I can guarantee that – even if it doesn’t change your whole life and make you miraculously carefree – you will definitely feel better than before. It can be a friend, a therapist, a parent or guardian, anyone who you trust and are willing to open up to.

BTW, a quick shoutout to, what I thought was very relevant to today’s post, the macaroon in the title picture; on the way back from my summer holiday in France last year my sister accidentally squashed the macaroon she had brought back from the hotel on the Eurostar which happened to be very photogenic!

    I really enjoyed your blog today. You are right — we all take too much upon ourselves, and kick ourselves because we can’t handle it all. And it’s not like plowing the fields and digging wells — this is everyday mania like office work and family and social media and people and death and illness and everything inbetween. You have to get to a point in your life where you say hey, I can’t take on one more thing. And that’s okay. That’s the way it’s supposed to be.
