What to Do When Your Life Flips Upside Down

Ask Julie Smith, Peptalks, Relationships

Dear Julie,
What do I do when my home, my family, my life, my business is flipped completely upside down?

Signed, Julie

Yes, that’s right, my life is a mess right now. Floods, illness, famine … ok maybe not the last one, but still, lately there are days where I feel like I’m starring in my own version of The Ten Plagues.

Resilience is the ability to bounce back from defeat or hardship and it is one of the key traits teens need to develop in order to not get overcome by the world. But how do we as adults learn resilience? How do we learn to move past the hardships and curveballs that life throws at us? How do we get past the hard times while keeping ourselves and our kids together?

In this week’s video, I talk a little about what’s been going on in my life, and how I’m learning to cope with it. I hope sharing my struggle is helpful to you. Share your struggles and thoughts in the comments below.
