how do you keep the faith when life keeps getting harder and harder??? it doesn't seem to be getting any easier. ever since i lost my dad it seems like one bad thing keeps happening after the other and i don't know what to do anymore or if i can take any other bad things happening. in your darkest times how do you keep the faith, what do you do to get yourself out of it?

Hi hear ya. Sorry whats going on with you. I try and focus on the positive things in life. It is tough though because its waaaay easier to be pessimistic than optimistic. I guess I try to be grateful in the touhest times and I think that helps me get through each day...one day at a time.

Hi Digby, I know that you have been going through a very hard time after losing your father but I didn't know that there were other factors as well. Sometimes it really feels like when it rains it is a hailstorm but just like any storm, this too will pass. I've gone through such a roller coaster ride of good times and tough times but one thing that I know for certain is that the tough times always pass. My faith has been tested so many times but somehow the tough times make my faith even stronger. Like Jimmy, I like to focus on what I am grateful for and that always turns my energy around. I will journal about what I am grateful for at the end of each day and I feel a ton better. If I'm having a rough day, then I will do it in the morning or any time of day. I'll even recite what I'm grateful for to myself and that helps too.
