Are you grappling with a big issue in your life right now? Perhaps you're coping with a tragic situation or loss that is making it difficult to interact with your friends or even get through your normal daily routine. Dr. Robin says tough times are a reality in each of our lives, but you somehow need to figure out how to keep going. "You're going to figure out, in spite of everything that you're dealing with, how to re-engage with the positive life force that is available to you right now," she says.
That doesn't mean your problems should be ignored or that they will somehow magically melt away. But by continuing to live your life, Dr. Robin says you will see the light at the end of the tunnel. "Allow life and all of its treasures, all of its richness, all of the small little things that can make a big, humongous difference in your day," she says. "You're going to decide that you're going to live anyhow."
