10 Ways to Be Strong in Facing Difficult Trials

Be strong

It's not easy to be strong in the face of tough trials. Your days are like nightmares and all the regrets come to torment your mind. 

Some people experience mental disorders because they are unable to face the misfortune they experience.

 However, like it or not, the best choice that can be taken is to face the ordeal. 

Running away from the problem will not solve the problem. It's the same with giving up on the fate that is so bad for the time being. 

To help you face tough trials, here are 10 ways worth trying.

1. Pray 

Pray to God. Ask for his help so that you are strengthened to face this calamity.

Also, remember that you are never alone. There is always a God who will accompany you. 

In front of him, you can vent, cry, and ask for help as mentioned above.

There is nothing wrong if you increasing the frequency of worship. 

Because when you are facing trials, your mentality must be very shaken. 

The reason is, worship can calm the troubled mind.

2. Confide in other people

Besides praying, you can also shed your feelings on other people. 

Even though it is only in the form of words, the effect of confiding is quite large, you know.

The majority of people feel some of their burdens lifted after finishing telling stories. They become relieved and can think better.

But remember, confide in those whose attitude is mature and wise enough. 

Don't confide in those who are still childish and judgmental. 

The wrong choice of friends to confide in can make your mind even more chaotic.

3. It's OK to Cry

Yes, cry. Pour out all your sorrow through those tears. 

No need to be proud or ashamed. Crying is a natural expression of feelings when someone experiences sadness.

Remember, being tough doesn't mean being tough. Being tough doesn't mean holding on to feelings. 

To be strong in facing trials, you must be able to accept the disaster and go through it well. 

And crying is one way that you can stay "sane" going through this disaster.

4. Strengthen Relations with Friends and Relatives

Almost everyone who has experienced a disaster must have felt frantic. Not infrequently you wonder why all that happened to you. 

Those who are not strong will even blame God for the fate that befell them.

In situations like this, the presence of close people is very important. 

Their presence will calm you down. They can also help you stay away from bad thoughts.

To strengthen the relationship with these close people. Don't even leave them. 

Maybe some of you want to be alone. However, remember to keep in contact with friends and relatives. 

5. Ask for Help

Ask a friend for help

Don't be shy to ask for help. Everyone in this world needs help from others. 

So if you need help, just say so. 

Let those who want to help to help. Later, when you have risen, remember the services of all of them. 

Be there when they need help too.

But what if someone denounces what you did? 

Eits, don't worry. You just need to stay away from people like that. 

Just make it the ordeal you're going through to select toxic and non-toxic circles.

6. Be thankful for what you have

One of the ways to be strong in the face of difficult trials is to be grateful. Yes, thank you!

It may sound strange, but it will remind you that your world is not over. 

You still have the capital to rise. You are still given sustenance by God.

For example, you just got divorced by a husband who was caught having an affair. You had trouble finding a job after becoming a single parent. 

And after successfully getting it, you are asked to WFH with an incomplete salary.

What you're going through is really hard. No one can deny that. 

However, look at your baby. At least you still have him now. 

So, be grateful for its existence so that you are still given strength.

7. Do Your Best

Do the best you can do at this time. It's not easy to do that, but it's worth a try.

For example, you have just been accepted at a favorite PTN. 

But before paying the entrance fee, suddenly your sister is sick and needs a lot of money.

With a heavy heart, your parents used your savings for college for your younger sibling. 

On the one hand, it's obvious that you love your little brother and want him to get well. But on the other hand, it's normal if you feel sad because you can't go to college.

Your situation is very dilemmatic. But the best that can be done is to act well too. 

So be patient. Support your sister. Meanwhile, as long as you are not in college, you can continue studying to get a scholarship.

8. Don't Daydream

Daydreaming is an activity of imagining something that is most difficult to realize. 

These activities can cause your depression to deepen.

For example, you have just been laid off by a company due to the co-19 pandemic. 

You have to pay for the wife who just gave birth and the first child who wants to go to school.

The ordeal that you are feeling is very heavy. You are stressed financially as well as mentally.

The best solution you can take is to keep trying. 

You can look for any odd job or ask people for help.

Again, avoid daydreaming in this situation. Because daydreaming about depressed people usually only adds regret. 

Instead of getting better, you will be more stressed.

9. Think ahead strategy

Making a strategy for the future is an effective way to be strong in the face of difficult trials. 

By thinking about what to do in the future, you will no longer dwell on past events.

It does take time to get to this stage. So don't be in a hurry if you still need to recover mentally. 

It's just that, when the time is right, think about what to do in the future.

10. Move On

Stop. Do not insist on regretting the disaster that happened. Especially when you blame yourself.

Trials are something that not everyone wants. 

Some trials can be prevented, but regretting them is useless. It would be better if you take lessons from what has happened. 

But what if someone else violates your rights? For example, being robbed or injuring yourself?

Actions like that have to be processed legally. You are right to demand justice. 

But moving on still needs to be worked on. So, change your mindset so you can look to the future. 


Trials come and go. In a light measure, it's easy for us to move on in the face of the calamity that befalls us. 

But when the ordeal is very burdensome, it is clear that not everyone can handle it well.

Nevertheless, the world continues to turn. Life doesn't stop just because you are being tempted. 

Standing up to tough trials is a must-have skill. Because in this life, maybe not only once you will feel that way.
