You Determine What Your Problems Do To You PT II @KingJoseph_1

Do you think you have problems?

My dear, they will not last forever. Your problem will not live forever, but you will! Storms always give way for the sun . winter always thaws into springtime.
Your storm will soon be over, my dear. And your winter will thaw. Your problem will be resolved.
Remember this, every problem has a limited life span, just like every mountain has a peak and every valley has its low point.

Automatically, life has its ups and downs, its peaks and its valleys, no one us up all the time, nor are they down all the time. Problems do end, they do go away. They are all resolved in time.
