I don’t have a solution to your troubles…heck, I don’t even have a solution to mine most of the time. But, I can tell you that with time and focus on a solution, it’s possible to get through them. The outcome may not always be perfect, and you may not always get your way, but sometimes the winning part of the challenge is beating trouble down just enough to put the situation behind you, so you can move forward.
It means there are times when you won’t get your way, you may have to compromise when you don’t want to, and there are definitely times when you’ll feel like you’re losing.
Perhaps the point is to be bigger than your troubles; make it hard for them to exist and fight back with vigor, no matter what the situation.
Will having the big bat cure your troubles? No, but it will surely make them wish they never bothered you in the first place (and it might just give you an edge the next time they come knockin’ on your door).
Swing that bat, and give your troubles troubles.
