Dealing with Tough Times

More wisdom from the Dalai Lama:

“Tragic circumstances help you develop inner strength, the courage to face them without emotional breakdown.  Who teaches this?   Not your friend, but your enemy.”

For many people today, the enemy is job loss or wage cuts.  Our real challenge is to face the enemy without anger or tears, to solve our problem without a show of “poor me.”  One important thing to remember is that you are not alone.  Workers across this country – and many other countries – are facing the same problem.  As the wise man says, we need to learn from our enemy and become stronger. Look inside.  The strength you need is there.  You just have to find it.
