​How many times have you heard the saying: “When life gets tough, the tough get going.?"  This cliché sounds good, however for many people suffering, it can be much more complicated. When life gets tough, their life seems to spiral out of control. 

Do you find yourself:

  • Feeling stuck

  • Feeling the life, you know doesn’t fit anymore

  • Feeling betrayed or left behind

  • Difficulty getting past old or current hurts

  • Feeling walked over

  • Feeling you don’t matter 

Waters Edge Counseling and Play Therapy of Northwest Arkansas has a team of experienced professional counselors to walk with you through the storm. Contact us today to schedule a private consultation.

What is it exactly that separates those who thrive regardless of adversity and those who don’t? Is it genetics, luck, or pure willpower?

Consider that Nelson Mandela spent 27 years in prison before he became the first democratically elected president in South Africa. Abraham Lincoln failed in business, had a nervous breakdown, and was defeated eight times in elections before becoming president. A boy born to a teenage alcoholic prostitute and an absentee father found himself in trouble throughout his childhood, eventually growing up to be Charles Manson.

Hardships strike all individuals and families at one time or another. How we deal with the hardship helps chart our future as an individual and as a family. Here are ways to cope with hardships in a positive way.

  • Acceptance of the hardship. Use energy and resources to meet the demands of the hardship, rather than using up energy in denial.

  • Avoid blame. Use resources to correct or change the situation, rather than blaming others.

  • Practice patience. There is a need for conciliation, patience and consideration in times that require cooperation.

  • Express commitment and affection. Be explicit about feelings, particularly expressions of commitment, affection and praise.

  • Open communication. Be willing to talk openly about any topic or concern.
