Truly, No Life Is Perfect.
Sometimes we think of celebrities as having easy lives with so much adoration, creativity, money and beauty surrounding them. But in a recent interview, Lady Gaga reminds us that no life is without challenge. She said: “I miss people. I miss… going anywhere and meeting a random person and saying, ‘Hi,’ and having a conversation about life. I love people. I’m very acutely aware that once I cross that property line, I’m not free anymore. As soon as I go out in the world, I belong, in a way, to everyone else.” She adds: “I said to myself, ‘Well, if I can’t be free out there, I’ll be free in here,’” pointing to her heart.
Bring Your Unique Set of Skills To Meet The Challenge.
What skills can you use to craftily maintain relationships, even during the tough times? Our family members and loved ones deserve our attention. Even when we feel burdened or overwhelmed, we have something to offer others.
A Mature Outlook Toward Life Makes Challenges Easier.
During conflict, focus on the positive process of engagement and collaboration toward common goals. Set aside your pride, so you don’t become unfair to anyone. Avoid accusations, name-calling and statements that begin with “you always” or “you never.” When the other person crosses a line, make it easy for the other person to back down with grace. Look beyond the surface-level issue to what a person is really needing and what deeper conflicts exist.
Choose To stand strong — Even when all the odds are Stacked against You.
Meeting work deadlines and the expectations of others can be tough. But do not let the challenge deter you from working as hard as you can and finding pride in the process of moving, with purpose, toward your goals. It takes a lot of bravery to accept the challenges in life and cross the rough patches. Give yourself credit for working your way through whatever is on your plate.
