When the difficulties lock you down - Keys are patience, hard work and prayers[This thread wins a special prize for the topic-based TOW of November 2017]
It is said that life is a journey with lots of ups and downs and one encounters numerous speed breakers on the way. Sometimes we pass through green sunny open roads and at other times we have to pass through the dark tunnels.There are some people who are lucky and get the things easily in life while others are unlucky and face hardships in life.
We all know every tunnel has light at its end and even darkest of the night is followed by daylight. But what if sometimes we are locked in difficulties which never seem to have an end to it? It is very easy for a person to get impatient, frustrated and melancholic during such times. They sit back crying, worrying and regretting about what has happened and speak aloud as to how they have been unlucky to the lest and try to gather sympathy and help from the people. But a million dollar question is does this help at all in solving the problem? No, not at all! When you worry and get into depression you lose the power of rational thinking as your mind gets jammed. So the key to overcoming such unending difficult situations is to have patience, sit back and plan, do hard work and most important have faith in God. It is true that person is his own best friend and nobody can help you more in such tight situations than you yourself. So you have to be on your foot, keep going and never stop trying under such situations. Sometimes you may think your so-called friends and relatives can help you but in most of the cases it is we ourselves who have to undertake efforts to bail us out from unfavorable situations. Trust in God and faith that whatever he does is for good, gives immense internal strength to face such situations with bravery.
So if you are locked in a difficult situation, do not waste time in repenting, worrying, complaining. Rather than that do hard work, have patience, believe in God and keep trying. If you do so then you have found the key to come out of it.
