How to Make the Best of a Bad Situation

How many times have we found ourselves in the middle of a not very good situation?  And sometimes we don't feel that there is a way out for a very long time.  How does one cope and try to move past things?

It could be any sort of situation really.  Divorce, a separation, a bad job, nasty co workers, problems with family, friends, relatives or even your children.  Drugs, alcohol, crime, anything, you name it, no bad situation is ever good.  Oh, and let's not forget the death of a loved one.  That's a bad situation too that nobody can ever really get over.  The void will always be there.

Just how do you deal with a bad situation to make your life still good and meaningful?  We obviously also want to see a light at the end of a tunnel of darkness.  We want to see good things come and the bad things disappear into the past to never been seen or heard from again.

When people are dealing with criminals or a crime of any sort, they just want to get past it.  After all, many people that have to deal with that are just good Samaritan trying to help make their neighborhoods safer and what do they get?  Not nice people trying to get in their face in a not good way.  Making things not safe.  And it was no fault of the good Samaritan.  Any good citizen does not need to have unwanted people trying to cause harm to their lives.  People will not stand for it.

But everyone needs to see the positive in a bad situation and not let it get to them.  Try not to let these people that want to bring you down get to you.  Try to tune them out.  Make sure that you still do all the things you would normally do.  Watch movies, go to movies, play music, visit with friends and family.

And tend to the things that are necessary to make all the bad go away.  Protect you first.  And protect the people you love.  Don't let a bad situation come between you.  Whatever it may be, lock it up and throw away the key.

Anything bad in my mind deserves to have someone take a shovel to it and bury it underground.
