    What do you do when life kicks you in the *o*l***s... again?

    When you feel like you're doing all you can, but then life just says "No", and not for the first time.  How do you pick yourself up?  (Sorry about the swear but I'm fuming today)

    Rich I know how you feel, but don't let it get you down. Pick up the pieces and go for it stronger than ever and don't look back.

    I keep going for my girls because I know they need me. If I didn't have them, I'd be likely to crawl in a corner and not come out for a few days - or weeks - or months.

    I also have the hope of Christ to keep me going. I know that eventually I'll die and none of the bad stuff that happened to me on this earth will matter, anyway. All that will matter is what I did for Him while I was still alive. Some days I just don't "feel" it, though. But feelings are not faith.

    Sorry. I don't mean to preach. You asked how I pick myself up, and that's just my honest answer (which will probably be voted down because I mentioned Christ). I have to look outside myself because if I don't, I won't see any reason to continue with anything.

    Hello Richard, when I get frustrated with life and things. I have a drink of hot tea (English Breakfast Tea made strong) Sit back breathe and think about what the block is, people, money, whatever. Ask myself is it beyond my control, people are, so is the economy, so accept it is frustrating and I have no control. If I can control the situation and in particular my emotions and reaction then I try to work on doing that. It is amazing how often it seems to work out, when I accept my own limitations but then allow myself to work on using my strengths to go about things differently.

    I hope this helps and you are soon feeling better about the situation.

    i once got a piece of good advice a long time ago which has helped me in many situations. You should always look at the possitive things that you have done in a day and go for it from there. No matter how small they are. That will always make you feel better. Hope that helps mate and good luck

    I just tell myself "It's ok", "It's alright", or my favorite "It's just a test".

    I've found that life says 'NO' more often than not. Allowing Time to do it's healing and revealing has always worked best for me. Try to resist impulsive reactions to the 'NO's', as that usually results in further, and often more intense 'NO'S'.  Like  workingmomwm, I also find relief and comfort through my faith in the Lord. Additionally, I've learned that life's NO's are like nasty weather.. they come, (for awhile), and then they go, (for awhile). Nothing stays good, nothing stays bad, but change is certain.

    Hey, it's just life.....................NONE of us are getting out of it alive!

    I care a great deal about the details, but despite that...........that is the bottom line.

    Well my friend .. The sting of battle is a beautiful thing.  You don't  dwell on the battle, rather you thank God for the ability to fight it.  then you say to yourself .. " I've got some serious ass to kick," and you start swinging ..  The harder the challenge the better.  It makes you a seven foot 300 lb warrior ready to take on anything.

    I see life as a battlefield. i prepared myself for whatever failures I may encounter everything I venture into something new. Cliche it maybe, but I do believe that the true measure of the man is not how he run, but how he stands after falling.
