Staying Positive is Hard

All you hear all day is how bad the economy and how hard it is to find a job. For those of us without a job it makes it even harder to stay positive. Either it's the Dow dropping, huge number of layoffs, dropping home values or another peanut product is being recalled. So with all that is going on how do you stay positive? Believing that you will find a job soon and that you won't be heading towards financial ruin?

I don't know.

Please let me know. I know stressing out doesn't help - but it's hard no to. I think I'm getting gray hair faster recently and that stress could be the culprit.

It is hard to stay positive. I know I was a wreck when it happened to me. The uncertainty, the fear, the anger was all overwhelming at times. But I tried to stay focused on the good things in my life: I had a supportive mate and family, friends who cared about me, and I had use of all my body parts. Things could've been worse. It was a very stressful time (and I wouldn't want to repeat it), but I kept saying to myself that it was just another bump in the road, and that my life would be filled with such bumps, and the sooner I learned to deal postively with them, the better. So I dealt. And you will too. Why? Because you have to. Because you are a smart, independent, capable person who can take care of herself, no matter what life may throw your way. You WILL get through this. Everyone you know and love will help you through this. We all have faith in you.
