Think of negative situations as challenges, not as problems. And as challenges, use them as opportunities to grow, to enrich your perspectives, and make worthwhile changes in your life.
It is a mindset. Thinking of the situation as a problem solidifies the issue as if it is permanent and that it will absolutely change your life for the worse.
Challenges are more positive, though they may seem disturbing at first. They are more transient. You deal with them as you continue your life. There’s an upside: as you work through them, your life becomes enriched.
When you view these situations as opportunities, you’ll become far more adept at handling them quickly, efficiently, and with less stress.
