Life's a (beautiful) struggle. And since we face hardships every day, the question is not how to avoid it — we can't — but rather how to cope with it. One thing that might help is reminding ourselves that we're in this together. Nobody is exempt from problems. Big and small.

To do just that, let's take a look at the Twitter account 'Struggle Tweets.' Its content is a bit hard to define and often prompts the question "WTF?" but if I were to describe it in a few words, I'd go for "funny", "cringy", and "weird."

From a poor man's meal to a surprising relationship turn, here's a collection of posts you didn't know you needed.

Refusing to be taken down and laughing about it on Twitter is actually not the worst way to cope with life. Far from it. According to the American Psychological Association (APA), people react differently to uncertainty and those with a higher intolerance for it may be less resilient and more prone to low mood, negative or down feelings, and anxiety.

The organization also provides these simple steps that can help you feel in control:

First of all, be kind to yourself. Some people are better at dealing with uncertainties than others, so don’t beat yourself up if your tolerance for unpredictability is lower than your friend's. Remind yourself that it might take time for the stressful situation to resolve, and try to remain patient with yourself in the meantime.

You can also reflect on past successes. Chances are you've overcome stressful events in the past, so give yourself credit for it. Reflect on what you did during that event that was helpful and what you might like to do differently this time.

Also, work on developing new skills. When life is relatively calm, it can be a good idea to try things outside your comfort zone. From standing up to a difficult boss to picking up a hobby, taking risks helps you develop confidence that comes in handy when life veers off course.

Limit exposure to the news if you think it's affecting you. When we’re stressed about something, it can be tough to look away, but compulsively checking the news only keeps you wound up. Try to limit your check-ins and avoid the news during vulnerable times of day, such as right before going to bed.

Let go of things that are out of your control. When uncertainty strikes, many people immediately imagine worst-case scenarios. Try to get rid of the habit of ruminating on negative events.

Furthermore, ask yourself: if a friend came to me with this worry, what would I tell her? Imagining your situation from the outside can often provide perspective and fresh ideas. Trust your gut!

Engage in self-care. Don't allow stress to derail your healthy routines. Make conscious efforts to eat well, exercise, and get enough sleep. Many folks find stress release in practices such as yoga and meditation.

Seek support from those you trust. People tend to isolate themselves when they’re stressed or worried but social support is important, so reach out to family and friends.

That's what happens when you go into a relationship with the mind set of forcing the other person into said relationship.

This is not a spoiler, because it happens in the very first minutes of the movie, but still, if you don't wanna know anything about the movie you should stop right away. Heck, you should have stopped at the "This is not a spoiler" part.... You've been warned! Alright, you do know that the dog isn't really dead and it's alive and well right? You know how movies work, right? :)

As mentioned before, focus on the things that are within your control. Even if it's something as simple as meal planning or laying out your clothes the night before a stressful day. Establish routines to give your days and weeks some comforting structure.

However, if you continue to have trouble managing stress and coping with uncertainty, ask for professional help. Psychologists are experts in teaching people how to develop healthy ways of tackling stress.

Probably because she wants to date an adult who can take care of him or herself.

Sometimes I think that to be able to afford health care in the United States, you have to be really rich.

WTF is wrong with people. If I want to do a haistyle, I'll do the hairstyle, regardless of anyone feeling offended by it. Are we really going to bar people from doing things because of the color of their skin? Even if that color is white? The world's gone mad.
