The hardest battles are yet to come, or so they say. It’s a belief that what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, yet sometimes it can feel like each battle that you’re going through is going to be your last. When it gets to that point in life where you feel like everything is coming down on top of you, you still have to dig deep and battle through it. Because what’s happening to you right now will most likely be something you won’t be phased by in a year’s time. That sounds like a long way away, but it will be within those 12 months that the issues disappear, you find your way in life again. Everyone is allowed to fall off the bandwagon every so often, and goes through a bit of a tough times that tests them. But it’s how you get back on the wagon, and how you get through life, that shows how strong you are as an individual. So, we’re going to try and talk you through some of the battles we go through in life, and how you can get through them.
The Biggest Battles
When your life is shaken by an event, you can’t help but feel as though the world is crashing down on you. It could be the death of a loved one, the loss of a job, or the ending of a relationship. Everyone is going to go through times in their life where at least one of these scenarios happens. Depending on what type of person you are, depends on how you tackle it. Some people love to turn to something they see as an escape, such as alcohol. It numbs the pain of reality, and turning to it daily to get through the stress of the bad time is a reality for so many people. If you visit www.help4addiction.co.uk/, you’ll find a website full of help and support, whether it be you who is going through the battle or someone you know. We think it’s so important to reach out to someone who you know is turning to alcohol and other substances. Sometimes all that’s needed is that helping hand from a friend!
The Minor Battles That Pile Up
Often we can’t pinpoint one big battle that’s making us feel the way we are, it’s the smaller battles in life that rock us the most as they begin to mount up. One day your car might break, the next you might leave your bank card at home, and the one after that your card gets declined because you’re all spent out. This is a reality of people all over the world, and it leads to constant daily stress that can severely impact your mental health. We’d recommend checking our services in your area that can help. There are financial services, community support groups, and counselling that can help those who are struggling every single day.
Finally, we think it’s so important to keep battling through, no matter what. There are so many avenues of support, all you have to do is reach out and find it! Fighting alone is so common amongst men in particular, delaying the healing process and preventing them from improving their life!
