Life’s major hurdles
For the many wonderful moments that life holds, there are a number of terrible ones, too. And when they arrive, they can be particularly devastating and difficult to overcome. But finding the strength to make the best of a bad situation and move forward as a wiser person is what life is all about.
One of the most distressing issues that can happen in the workplace is becoming the victim of an accident at work. Severe injuries may permanently affect your ability to work, stripping away your earning potential. Consult the materials at Gov.uk to learn your rights as an injured worker, and enlist the help of an experienced solicitor if your employer is uncooperative. These two resources are important if you are the victim of sexual harassment or unfair labour practises as well.
Unemployment can result in monetary troubles and shake your confidence, especially if you’ve run out of statutory redundancy pay. Try to keep up your spirits by networking and sending out resumes, and look for opportunities for further training that will strengthen your application in this competitive job market.
Relationship Problems and Family Disputes
Whether they be familial, friendly, or romantic, relationships are the most meaningful part of a person’s life. Finding people who can share in our joys and sorrows is truly one of life’s greatest blessings. But there is a flip side to that, too: losing someone we love—whether that be through a dispute, a divorce, or a lost contact—can be one of the biggest obstacles we encounter.
If you’ve simply lost contact with someone you care about, why not look them up? E-mail, Skype, and social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter make it easy to reinitiate contact with friends, family members, and business contacts with whom you’ve fallen out of touch. Don’t let old grudges and disputes hold you back; you may be surprised to find just how willing people are to forgive and forget.
Things get more complicated when it comes to break-ups and divorces. These are highly emotional separations that can really take their toll on your psyche and your self-esteem. In the case of a divorce, there are legal and financial issues to settle as well; look to family law firms to provide consultation and serve as mediation to resolve the divorce on amicable terms. Turn to close family members and friends to talk about your feelings and frustrations and give you support during the divorce process.
If you’re buried under mortgage or credit card debt, take the first steps toward recovery by doing a complete analysis of your current income versus expenses and establishing a tight budget. You may be able to make informal arrangements with your creditors to make smaller payments until you get your finances on track. If your financial issues are more serious, look to formal arrangements as possible solutions before filing for bankruptcy. Gov.uk and the National Debtline provide important information and strategies for getting out of debt.
