How to handle yourself in your tough times. Difficult time comes in everyone’s life. Some people take the wrong steps in difficult times and waste their lives. But they do not think that if there are clouds in the sky today, tomorrow or after tomorrow or in some days the sun will surely come. Because it can not be always raining. That’s what happens with us in our difficult time. If we are in trouble today, then tomorrow or sometime later we will definitely come out of this difficult situation.
Remember, tough time comes to strengthen us, not to weaken. When the sky is cloudy, even then the sun is in its place, it is not visible for some time due to clouds. And as soon as the clouds will go, the sun’s ray will fall on us. Similarly, in the difficult times, we need to maintain a little patience, that time will pass very soon, and good times will come.
I am going to tell you an incident of Akbar and Birbal. Akbar was the third and the greatest Mughal Emperor of the Mughal Empire ,who reigned from 1556 to 1605. Birbal, or Raja Birbal, was a Hindu advisor in the court of the Mughal emperor. He is mostly known in the Indian subcontinent for the folk tales which focus on his wit. Once Akbar told Birbal, write something on this wall that I feel sad if I read in happiness, and I am happy to read in pain. And then Birbal wrote – This Time Will Pass Away. Yes, if you read it in happiness then you will be sad and you will be happy if you read it in sadness.
Let me give you another example, that when we wake up in the morning, then do we feel like getting up from bed, do not But still we get up. Yes, in the same way, we also have to take ourselves out of this tough time. Now it depends on you that you want to move forward by learning from this difficult time, becoming more robust, or want to destroy yourself in that tough time.
We must go ahead by learning from that tough time. And the hard times should be remembered just for what we have learned from that time that made us stronger.
