When times get hard, it can seem impossible to bounce back. Things get complicated, people give up on you, bills pile up, and life feels like an uphill struggle every single second of every single day. Giving up feels like the best option. Just drop everything. The job, the bills, the house…some people even dream of running off to live in the woods and leave the world behind! What do you do, once you start to feel overwhelmed?
