What does it mean to cope?
Yes, I'm serious. I thought I've known since elementary school but have discovered I'm confused. I especially need to understand this in terms that differentiate from "compensating". Thanks.
To cope in my opinion means to "keep living". In other words don't let circumstances cause you to give up on life. It also means accepting the reality of a situation.

One of the secrets to having a happy life is to always have (something) to look forward to. One man's opinion! :-)
Coping... From my mind, it's to deal with, to handle. The ability to juggle without entirely breaking. Coping is barely making through it. You cope with situations by struggling to get through instead of combusting.
Coping in life means to be able to take in what you see and to face up to life's challenges however you try atleast you know you have coped with the challenged.
