Eight things to do when difficulty hits you. 1. Keep calm, don't panic, don't get dramatic. 2. Don't nurse regrets, (forget what is over the dam). 3. Practice de-confusion (list it on paper). 4. Don't insist on a solution for the whole problem (just go one step at a time). 5. Ask yourself if the problem is right or wrong; (no wrong action works out right) (hold on to the right and you will come out all right in the end.). 6. Pray. 7. Go for a walk and talk with the Lord and then listen and believe. 8. Continue to persevere. You will somehow stay on top and come out all right.
The sublime and the ridiculous are often so nearly related, that it is difficult to class them separately. One step above the sublime makes the ridiculous, and one step above the ridiculous makes the sublime again.
