We all know the hard truth - life is totally unfair. Sometimes, it feels like one thing after another. It takes a toll on a person's mind and body when bad things keep happening, especially when they are all coming at once. It can seem totally unmanageable, especially if you feel like you don't have any control over the situation. Negative stress affects each individual in different ways; for example, some people can't sleep, others sleep too much; some people lose their appetite, others binge on junk food. Some people lose their motivation. Some people become depressed. And some people take life's challenges as opportunities - open doors for change, for personal growth, to develop new skills, or to meet new people.
Some things in life are out of your control. But your mindset - and most importantly, your reactions - are within your control.
Only you can change how you handle difficult situations, and the goal is to manage stress in a way that will produce a more favorable (or sometimes, just less awful) outcome in the end. Try to see the positive in every situation, and handle life's tougher challenges with compassion, grace, and character. Hardships, losses, even failures are the building blocks of compassion and kindness.
Bad things will happen to good people - this is life. Choose how you respond. It's your life.
