I know you don’t believe me now.
I know that the pain you feel inside your chest is almost unbearable. I know you think this will never pass.
But what you don’t know is that bad days don’t last forever.
They are there just to remind us how small we actually are.
They are there to let us know that we can lose everything we have within a minute.
They remind us of how everything can chang quickly and that we can’t affect it.
But, on the other hand, those bad days won’t be there all the time.
Bad days can come and go just like good ones.
But you know what is important?
It is important how you behave on those bad days.
If you feel you are having a bad day, just accept it. If you want to cry, cry.
If you want to talk to your friend, then do it.
If you want to scream, then scream. Just don’t keep the pain inside.
Don’t do it because once it explodes, it will completely ruin you.
You are allowed to fight your pain in ways only you know.
It is fine if you want to be alone or you want to surround yourself with people.
It is okay if you feel that your world is falling apart.
It is okay if you think that things will never be the same. It is okay to be a mess.
Just know that things like that never last long.
They last just long enough to remind us that no matter how good life is, all can change in a second.
They teach us to be humble. They teach us to respect life.
They make us go through hell to be happy. They teach us how to grow. But they never ruin us.
So, please bear in mind that no matter how disoriented and bad you feel right now, it won’t last forever.
Remember that there is always sun after some rain.
So, why are you worried in the first place?
It is not the first time life has played with you like this.
You have had these moments before, and in most cases, you have matured as a person.
Even if you had a bad day, something positive happened inside you.
That is what you need to seek in every bad day.
Look for that one positive thing which can make a difference.
These things don’t have to be complicated.
They can be simple like…
Just one smile of a stranger on the bus.
One ‘take care’ your bestie types in a text.
One ‘thank you’ that an old lady tells you when you help her cross the street.
If you don’t see the positive things in negative ones, it is like you are closing the doors to blessings.
Because first, you need to learn things in a harsh way, and then you will be happy.
First, you need to be broken and sad so you would cherish the moments when you become happy and fulfilled.
Otherwise, you won’t recognize the real blessings when they happen to you.
I hope that now, you have a totally different perspective of all the bad days that are about to happen to you.
I hope you are aware of the fact that they are there to teach you a lesson.
They are there to show you that no matter how much money or power you have, you are as small as any other human being.
And you will realize that life is all about the small things.
Maybe money can make you happy but not more than the smile of your child when he sees you after your day at work.
Those hands around your neck are the most expensive and meaningful jewelry you will ever have.
So, cherish people. Forgive them. Give them second chances.
But don’t let them make a fool out of you.
Live to the fullest and try things so you don’t regret anything.
And one more thing; keep that charming smile both on your good and your bad days.
Because, why not?
