Dealing with Bad Situations

We all have to deal with bad situations from time to time.  However, there are several things we can do to help us through the hard times.

  1.  Remain flexible – Being overly rigid can cause the bad situation to get worse, while flexibility allows us to find solutions.
  2. Perspective – Life is not fair, how you view your situation will determine how you feel and how well you can deal with the situation.
  3. Learn from the situation – Learning from what is happening might help you avoid similar situations or at least help you resolve similar situations quickly in the future.
  4.  Ask for help – We all need help from time to time, so don’t be afraid to ask for it.
