When you are going through a hard time, and you feel like giving up and going back to your old ways, how do you get through it?

Report as

First, remind yourself where your old ways got you. Chances are it wasn't pleasant. You go through hard times one day at a time, and constantly remind yourself that the situation isn't permanent. Giving up admits defeat, and when you admit defeat you will find yourself right back where you once were.....and probably worse.

I look towards my friends. I don't ask for help from them, nor do I usually tell them about the problems I'm dealing with, but just being around my friends allows me to smile and even forget about the rest of my problems. Even if I don't have many friends or they are more like just peers than friends, they always helped me without them realizing it. If they don't work out than I draw, write, read, listen to music, or just sleep (things I do to keep my mind and hands occupy). But the solution to your problem can be different from mine. What are you afraid of going back to?

what helps is that I always believe with time...bad time goes even if I just sit around and do nothing about it..
But if I work for it it goes faster.......
Just a belief that the time will pass out and good time will be back helps but how fast depends upon our efforts
Secondly a problem is a problem only till we consider it a problem....
start thinking it as a part of life helps big time..........

So in short the kind of attitude and your mind set is all which helps in any situation

Stop everything and look back to what caused you to become strong and break away from your old ways... In life we are always going to be faced with obstacles and our goals are to overcome and triumph through with a strong grip on reality. Don't give up what you worked so hard to achieve. You don't want or need to put yourself in tougher situations. Stay strong, positive and focus on finding solutions and not going back to your old ways. As they say with truth, "this too shall pass". It does, just believe within yourself.

I understand what you are saying. I have worked so hard to get to the 4 month mark of not cutting myself. But recently I have been struggling and thinking about going back to it.

Keep busy. Spend time with friends and family who support you. Stay away from negative situations that will drag you down. Stay focused and don't get distracted by difficulties. Everything is temporary. Even the worst situation will change and pass with time. Remember who you are. Strong awesome and amazing.
