We’ve all been there. At the bottom, with nowhere else to go. We were all broken by the world and that’s why it’s very important to know that you can get up again.
Every woman in this world is a great example of a warrior because each and every one of us went through tough times at one point or another but none of us stayed on the ground. We lifted ourself and one another.
That why I’m giving you some reminders to help you get through those tough times that seem to have no end.
1. Accept what can’t be changed
Sometimes there are things in our life that are not up to us to change. Those things can make us sad or angry, most probably because we don’t have the ability to influence them.
But what can we influence? The way we look at it, of course. That’s why it’s very important to react to hard times as lessons more than as problems. Lessons make us stronger!
2. Tears aren’t a sign of weakness
If you have the urge to cry then don’t hold back! Tears are never a sign that you are weak—from birth they’re a sign that you are alive.
You can’t shut down your emotions and there is no reason to do so. You simply need to accept that your emotions are a part of you and that you need to cry in order to cleanse all the bad things that happen to you.
3. Let go
Holding grudges only makes you feel sad or angry and it doesn’t even affect the other person. So why bother with it in the first place? You don’t need to fill your life with unnecessary misery that doesn’t have anything to teach you. So, let go.
Let go of all the grudges you’re holding against someone or against the world. It’s simply not worth your precious time or your heartache.
4. It doesn’t matter what others think of you
It’s not important what someone else says about you. Let them gossip. Let them be occupied with your life because they don’t have lives of their own.
You need to know that you are perfectly fine without those jealous and miserable people who have nothing better to do with their lives. Don’t let it bother you. What’s important is that you know that you are lovable and precious. Let them think whatever they want.
5. You are not alone
When times get tough we tend to forget that there are people out there who love us more than anything. Those people are very important in our life and we should never forget about them.
We are never out there completely alone, because there will always be someone who will be there for us in the middle of the night when we feel insecure and fragile. Those people will lift us at the times when we forget how to do it ourself. Don’t ever forget those people.
6. Don’t regret anything that has happened
There’s probably a reason for it. You have been granted an opportunity to get to know yourself better and an opportunity to grow.
Don’t regret your decisions because they shaped you into the person you are today and you should be proud of all the things you’ve learned and all the situations that turned you into the badass woman you are today.
7. It will pass
Remember the last time you thought that your life was a mess and that you wouldn’t be able to survive it? Well, you did. You are still here. You have the ability to smile and be happy so what made you think that your life is miserable? It’s not.
Everything that you’re feeling right now, all the tears that are flowing down your cheeks, will pass and you will feel reborn. Don’t worry. It just takes time.
8. Be yourself
In this hurricane of judgment in our world, we forget who we are and we forget what we wanted in the first place. We replace our own hopes and dreams with the hopes and dreams of the people around us and it leads us to feeling bad about ourself and about our life. But why?
No one can be you better than yourself. There will always be someone better than you but you are unique and you should be proud of who you are. There’s no need to feel bad about who you are. You deserve to release everything that you are. The world will thank you.
9. If someone wants to be there, they will
We tend to occupy our mind with people who simply weren’t meant to be in our life. They made us feel unlovable and they made us feel unappreciated but that’s not what we deserve.
You need to be aware of the fact that if someone wants to be in your life, they will do everything that is needed in order to find a way to stay there. Don’t bother trying to keep them or giving yourself away too much. If they want to leave, let them go.
10. Your problems don’t define you
You are way more than what you’re going through. You are a beautiful creature who gives the world meaning and it wouldn’t be the same without you.
That’s why you should never let a problem define you. You are way beyond your problems.
