Start by addressing the most pressing issues first then deal with all the others

You can't fix everything, you just have to deal with it.

Think they wanted practical advice not spiritual counsel

hey, it’s okay!

take a deep breath! maybe write down all the things that are worrying you? this might help relieve the stress!

tackle one thing at a time! work out the thing that is making life hardest and start at that!

I’m sure you’ll be okay!

Thank you for your replies. What if the most pressing issue are the slowest and take the most time to solve? My problem is that I get stuck at those and it prevents me from working on other things

They tend to take longer to address, true, but there's nothing wrong with working at whichever speed you're the most comfortable with, if you rush it, you're more likely to make mistakes, and I assume you still have decades left on this earth so there's no real shortage of time.

I'm very fast in general and I feel more comfortable finishing things quickly so it frustrates me when there are big blocks in the way

I suppose it's where you have to figure out what can be changed, how long it will take to change, how much effort/what will you need to change it and also what can't be changed, and learning to let go of the things that can't be changed.

Yes, I can understand how that would be frustrating, but what's more important? Getting it done quickly or getting it done properly?

Of course. But you've not really said what the issues are, hence the generic advice.

I am facing financial and accommodation issues but I am very fast at studying and reading. The former hinders the latter because they require long-term solutions but I'm thinking how to put them aside so I can focus on what really matters and deal with them only when their time comes (although they require a lot of mental energy, the actual 'work time' needed to resolve them is minimal)

Is this in relation to university? Is this an immediate issue? Are you eligible for student finance? How is the support from your family?

Yes. Yes. No. Available but needs a lot of 'communication' work to gather and I lack in social skills.

Hmm, okay, feel free to not answer, but do you have a good relationship with your family or is it strained? Are they able/willing to help do you think? Would taking a year out to work to get money be an option? Remember, university can be done at any age.

I think you just need to develop a really strong mindset to get through life. The problems you face now, you most likely won't be facing them in the future because even if you deal with different problems in the future- the fact is that there is an end to every problem that you face & the stronger you learn to become through the experience of life & it's issues, the easier it will be for you to deal with them as life goes on. And if you need help to become stronger and to deal, there are many options available. Counselling, talking to someone who understands you or even talking out loud to yourself and reminding yourself there isn't anything you can't get through. If you're more spiritual, then praying to God is always helpful. Surrounding yourself with good people, who remind you of how strong you are, or even writing down your thoughts/feelings when it gets too much and you have no one to speak too. Just don't be afraid to ask for help whenever you need it because I know it's easier said than done but trust me there is nothing you can't get through. Life is full of surprises & changes and in a few years time, you'll wonder why you stressed so much about your current problems.
