Whether it is a personal loss, or the overwhelming pressures of life, neglecting the assistance of others or not seeking it will lead to a break down sooner or later. As you continue looking at how humans deal with stress, this question comes to mind: Is the burden to be carried as a group effort? Do humans assist each other with their hardships, ultimately sharing a common connection through agony? It is for certain that a single person will not be able to deal with such stressful experiences alone without altering their own personality and character. Shutting yourself within a bubble will only lead to a disillusioned world where difficult experiences cripple you, and you constantly feel guilty for things you may not have been able to change.

Mankind experiences loss and anguish, hatred and vengefulness, physical and mental agony, yet we strive for greatness.
Humans are constantly being tested with difficult pursuits which they may surrender to or use their willpower to overcome. We often choose the latter. When one is unkind or disrespectful to you, it is human instinct to allow that disrespect make you feel insecure and ultimately cause deep anger. People tend to be victims to their own misfortune more often than they are survivors of the difficulty they face.
