We hear this comment as a response to all sorts of human drama and pain – it seems
to be the catch cry of our times. When it’s used as a response to someone making a
silly, minor complaint, it can be quite funny.
When it’s used as a response to genuine pain and suffering, it’s just cruel. There
have been so many dramatic events across the globe lately and from what I have
seen in my Life Coaching Practice, lots of people are really struggling to ‘Suck It
That’s where Life Coaching can be of such great assistance. When there is trauma
and pain, suffering and sorrow, Life Coaching is the ideal tool to help you rise
above the trauma, learn positive lessons from it and move powerfully forward with
You don’t have to be alone to sort out your issues and problems. It’s okay to admit
you are floundering and to ask for help. It doesn’t mean you are weak or useless,
it means you are human!
If you’re someone who always solves the problems of others, to whom everyone looks
for support, guidance and monetary assistance, it can sometimes be really
challenging to admit that this time, you can’t cope, this time it’s you who

It is natural to grieve for the loss of a loved one through death or divorce. It’s
okay to feel sad when there’s illness and suffering. There is a time for the grieving
and the sorrow and then – there is a time to move on.
A person can only wallow in the pit of despair for so long and then it’s time to climb
out of the pit and get on with your life.
I know about the pit of despair, I was in it for about three years (many years ago now),
following a painful divorce. It got to the point where I was sick of the sound of my own
voice telling my tale of woe. That’s when I crawled out and started looking for different
things. I asked for help and found it through friends, family and Life Coaching.
“Ask and you shall receive” really works. Quite often, especially if you are that strong
and capable person that others rely upon, people around you don’t realize you’re

so nobody can see our pain. This does not serve us at all. Far better to ask for the
help you need, from someone appropriate.
