Times To Distress

We all have problems. We all must evaluate and strategize practical and realistically ways of finding adequate and attainable solutions to our problems in order to reduce and/or eliminate stress and avoid distress (if at all possible).

Some problems really are only temporary! Having a: it will ‘eventually’ pass attitude as well as a gratitude attitude for whatever good is still a part of our life helps!

Though at times, we all have our “911” situations we must unexpectedly face, building inner fire-resistant positive-character traits like courage, patience, and resilience: we can ride the outer storm and not drown. We need accurate evidence and accurate knowledge to make the wisest/best possible choices during seemingly senseless situations that stress us out.

During times of distress, my family and I have been very grateful for true friends/true peer support enabling us to HOLD ON!:)
