Know that whatever hardships you are currently facing, it is only temporary. It will and shall pass. Not without a price though. You need to put in the effort to get yourself through it and remember to always practise patience. Patience however is an interesting specimen. It is not as easy as it sounds but the wait is worth it. It always is. If all fails, you need to believe that the calm is just ahead. Without it, without hope, all is lost. That is where one falls into utter despair and without any intervention, internally or externally, it is almost impossible to get out of.
