Everyone has the ability to build mental strength, but most people don't know how.
We spend a lot of time talking about physical strength and physical health, but much less time on mental strength and mental health.
We can choose to perform exercises that will help us learn to regulate our thoughts, manage our emotions, and behave productively despite our circumstances - the 3 basic factors of mental strength. No matter what your goals are, building mental strength is the key to reaching your greatest potential.

Why is it that once I hear that her tragedies are freak accidents and through no possible fault of her own that I find it harder to take her words of advice? I thought that when she said she got married, got the job, bought a house etc she was going to say how her husband left her or she got fired or went bankrupt and had to sell the house, something that she could possibly blame herself for, even if it wasn't her fault at all. I haven't suffered serious loss but I'm 30 with no house and no love of my life and she's possibly younger than me and has had two houses and two men she's loved enough to marry that accept her for who she is. I can see how much of a horrible, petty human being I am for being jealous of a lady who has lost her mother and husband but I feel it's harder to be mentally strong when part of you feels YOU'RE the enemy, not the world as in her case. Has anyone else suffered from this feeling of not getting the point where you want to be in life in relationships etc and you're struggling not to blame yourself and feel you're not good enough?

Great talk! I believe that the input we receive from the womb throughout our childhood and even into early adulthood especially from our parents, our siblings and many other means has tremendous effects that affects us for the rest of our lives, if we could learn to somehow keep the good and get rid of the bad, or even use the bad to make us stronger and wiser, we would live fuller and more meaningful lives. This talk gave me some really good ideas, i'm very thankful to TEDx and the young lady who shared her story and inspired mine.
We need a grieving process no matter how long it takes, from lost car keys to the death a pet or family member. And many people ARE victims of circumstance. Would you tell a starving child in Africa "Well...life is what you make it"? An abused elderly person "Quit feeling sorry for yourself"? Someone with severe genetic clinical depression "get to work!"? I certainly hope not. This woman is not realistic and at least online, there is no verification of ANY of her rather extreme case scenario personal stories. We must be cautious of what we listen to.
I don't think that saying life is unfair is correct. In fact, it's very fair. We all get the same existence and we're all faced with problems and tragedies. The fact that "bad" things happen to us all if the most fair thing ever.
I don’t know how to talk to my mom about my feelings because the way she grew up she knew how to control herself and how to keep her expectations low and she went threw things and always tells me and my brother you got it good and I’m always crying and she says I need to learn to control yourself and I don’t know how to tell her I think I’m a little depressed
This is such a most unexpected incidents happened in her life nt only in her"s but it happens others life too in other form. God just opens u or divert u to travel in different path to make u strong , bold, courage nd to fight demons.. But the path is hard nd tough nd through travelling u can feel the pain, pressure nd cry but later u r the victory from all sicknesses.
Wow! Said diabetic client must've had good insurance cuz the mentally ill/injured that receive Medicare visavie SSI/D don't access to that quality mental care, just dismissive therapists occasionally punctuated by overbooked earnest ones
Last fall just before turning 37, my life took a devastating turn. I came down with a skin condition that is still not diagnosed. I was kicked out of my home went to living in a motel till running out of money. Winter came by now I was living out of my van, the day I left my home State it was -30 with the windchill. I went to Florida to see my Dad who I hadn't seen in 20 year's, stayed there for two and a half weeks. Then I set my site's on Texas, I knew I could find work because of the Hurricane. Long story short, I ended up in south Texas, I still don't know what is wrong with me unfortunately. I have to make a decision soon on going to Colorado or heading back to Michigan, if I go to Michigan doctors maybe able to figure out what is wrong with me. Having to work with my problem at times is extremely hard mentally and physically. I may also find that Colorado weather makes it better for me and possible to beat this without medical help. This is the toughest decision I have had to make my entire life.
I find her talk to be sad.I'd like to believe and it has also been my experience that we are all connected. The minute you withdraw from the social web of interdependency you feel alone and therefore have no true soul or souls to lean on.
I have been suffering for a year now. A bad relationship finally ended. I blamed myself for not being a better man. Now I read and study and work and constantly encourage ppl to find a starting point and keep moving. However I can't let go of the unhealthy thoughts. I think this lady is saying every second every hour and everyday, you have push back against life. I've learned suffering eventually will lead to you finding yourself. Thank u for posting this video. "WE" can do this.

Несомненно, сложность разрешения семейных неурядиц обусловлено тем, что между супругами, как правило, нет соглашения, брачного контракта и они предъявляют друг другу различные требования, как материального так и морального характера.
