Life can be challenging and we may not have all of the answers at our fingertips
Do we always know what we must do as we go through life? Do we always know the actions that we must take to take care of ourselves and those that we love and care about? I don’t think so. I often struggle to find ways to overcome obstacles and solutions to various problems that I encounter in my own life. I don’t always know what I must do to ensure complete safety and happiness of my family. Now, I am not saying that I stop trying to find ways to overcome such challenges and instead I keep on trying and looking for solutions no matter what. All I am saying is that we don’t always know what to do, and certainly do not have answers to all questions that we often must answer, instead, we just do our best. We do the best we can and hope that our actions are the right ones. If not, if we fail, well, we just keep trying again and again. So, don’t be upset, or discouraged, if you don’t know the answer right away to a particular question or don’t know the best way to solve a particular problem, just do your best.
It’s ok if you must ask others for help or guidance when you need it. You are not overstepping your own ego; you are simply being human. We all need help from time to time, and it’s ok to reach out and ask for it when you can. I say when you can, because, unfortunately, we simply may not have anyone that we can reach out to for help and advice and, therefore, must rely fully on ourselves to find answers and solutions to our own questions and problems. It may often feel like there’s no immediate solution in sight, but there’s always a solution, there’s always a way to overcome whatever we may be dealing with or problem that we may be facing at any given point in time. We just need to be patient with ourselves, and always hope for and believe in a positive outcome. Because, what’s an alternative, complaining how tough our situation is to others, and live in a constantly negative state of being? That is definitely not a solution to our problem(s), it’s a way for our mind to make us feel better temporarily while not actually solving a problem. Therefore, taking action and searching for ways to overcome our challenges is a way to move forward past our problems, and eventually finding answers and solutions we are seeking.
So, when you are faced with a situation where you don’t know the answer, or don’t know how to solve it, don’t get discouraged or upset, don’t lose hope, just keep looking for a solution and ask others for help when you can. Either by yourself or with help of other people, you will overcome difficulties and problems with time, persistence, and hope in a positive outcome. Do the best you can, and never ever give up no matter how difficult things may get. As Abraham Lincoln once said: “I have simply tried to do what seemed best each day, as each day came.”
