There is no way of ever knowing what life is going to through at you, so sometimes we can be very unprepared for difficult periods in life. Whenever we are forced to go through some very stressful times, such as going through a divorce, bereavement, or a serious illness, it can often take us by surprise and we aren’t quite as emotionally prepared for these situations as we might have thought we would be. This is one of the main reasons why tough times are so hard on us and why so many upsetting periods have a negative effect on our mental health.
There is no reason you will never smile again, though. You will be able to get through these tough times and out the other side. As a result, you will be much stronger as a person. Has life handed you lemons? Here are some things you can do about it.
