One way helps us endure our sad present is to see it as a transitional stage in our life, or a bridge we should cross in order to reach to the bright future. Another way is to see such a period in our life as a test that polishes up our talents and without which our latent potential will never appear. We can think of whatever right means that will make us bear difficulties in our life patiently.
I have adopted this motto to help me endure difficulties in my life patiently:
"THIS SHALL PASS."
