Don’t trust anyone easily. Take every problem as a challenge. Accept the fact that bad things happen to everyone. Bad times make us feel out of control. Don’t let the little things get you down. Think of the real important things in your life like family, friends, your religion and community.
One of the best ways to forget about your problems is to help others. Always remember good begets good. As you know do good and have good.
Sharing your problems with a friend or family can also reduce stress. Don’t be a loner. Talk with your friends, family, teacher or others in your community.
If talking does not work, do something else to release your stress. You can write down your feelings on a page. You can start a journal or create an art.
