Short-term sacrifice for long-term gain

When life gets tough for me I have to face it head-on. I have to be honest with myself and those around me when I'm not happy with the way I'm feeling and acting. I have to be able to joke about it and keep a positive attitude. I have to be able to apologize, and be forgiven. I have to allow myself to ask for help. I have to remember that times like these don't last and that there is a reason for the difficulty. You don't get back to the mountaintop without going through the valley.
