Sometimes we encounter situations that we can't handle, and we want them to end very soon. Some of them have squatter rights, and they hang around a long time. In fact, you think you will never get over some things such as a painful divorce, the loss of a job, or a family dispute.
While you are in the thick of a terrible situation, it might appear to be the worst thing in the world. However, it isn't. In fact, there is purpose in your pain.
There are three major things to consider when you think you can't get over a bad situation.
Admit that what you are going through is real. Even though there might be discrepancies in the details, the situation exists. Pretending it doesn't exist doesn't make it go away.
Know that whatever you are going through is temporary. Nothing lasts forever. When you focus on your problem and mull it over in your mind, you prolong it. Luke said it best when he said quite often, "And it came to pass" (Luke 2:46 and other scriptures).
Think beyond your problem. Think how you will feel after your problem is solved and things are back to normal. Then begin to have that feeling before the problem is solved. This might be hard to do, but it is worth pushing through to that feeling.
Begin rejoicing now and before you know it, you would have gotten over what you thought you would never get over.
