4 Simple truths that can make you feel better even when things are going bad in the country

Things are not going according our expectations in the country.
I will not write to criticize people. I’ll leave that to the professionals who are already doing that day in and day out. I’ll just give you a message.

4 Simple Truths that can make You feel better even when things are going Bad in our Country

1. We are in this together: you are never alone
Life is getting harder and everyone is feeling the heat and most of the time we can’t do anything about it.
Look around you, you’ll see that people are doing fine. But they’re not. We are all struggling in our own way.
The first thing we have to know is that we have to adjust ourselves. If you can’t change the situation, change yourself to adapt to the situation. After that we have to think about our families and others around us (the elderly and the poor). Giving each other a helping hand or empowering each other can mean a lot.

2. Everything in life is temporary
Everything in life has a begin, middle and end. Even the darkest days will past and the Sun will shine again. There is a wise saying: If you’re going through hell, keep going (Winston Churchill)

3. Worrying and complaining changes nothing
Dreaming only won’t make you dreams come true, this is also the case with complaining. You achieve nothing today by complaining about yesterday. Attempt something, even if you fail it’s better than complaining.

4. There are still enough reasons to smile and be happy
A smile does not cost a thing and is no miracle. Smiling in hard times does not mean that you’re strong, it means that you are strong enough to face the the problems.
There are a lot of beautiful things around us that we miss to see during bad times. Appreciate the people who you have around you. They might not be there any more when the bad times are gone. Just open your eyes. At the end of the day, it’s not happiness that makes us thankful, but thankfulness that makes us happy.
Things will not get better with this, but these are the things that will keep you going.

to life,
