How To Handle Difficult Emotions?
We all have gone through our own share of difficult emotions in the past or maybe even today? I have learned and I strongly believe what it says in Psalm 46:1 God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Leaning on God in the hard times is as important as leaning on God during the better days of life.
I have found that prayer keeps me close to the Lord and comforts me while giving me hope and direction in life when sometimes life seems so very painful. Difficult emotions come to us without much warning sometimes. That is why we need to walk close with God each and every day not just the dog days of life!
Keep your eyes on bridges rather than the walls…
In this world, there will be obstacles that irritate, agitate, and frustrate us all. Part of the solution is to keep a level head and allow your intellect to lead your emotions rather than Visa Versa. Difficult emotions are just that (difficult rather than impossible). Sometimes it is best to step back and take a short break to regroup and while you do that, say a prayer and ask God to help direct you to what would be the best for you to do?
Another thing that I learned while going through a separation and ultimately a divorce, was that yes there are times to be comforted and given support, but often times people do not realise that even when going through difficult emotions that each one of us can encourage someone else, which can help encourage you at the same time. ~ Bill Greguska

Bringing good news is imparting hope to one’s fellow man. The idea of redemption is always good news, even if it means sacrifice or some difficult times. ~ Patti Smith
