It doesn’t matter whether you are going through some family emergency, if your heart has been broken by the person you love the most or you are experiencing some other problems—the point is the same. When life knocks you down and when you feel like you are at your breaking point, it seems impossible to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
You feel hopeless and helpless, convinced that things will remain like this forever. You think that you’ll never get yourself back up and all you can think of are the worst possible scenarios of how things will turn out.
It’s as if all of the optimism in you died. Like you’ve lost all faith that a better tomorrow might come and that you will rise from this misery you are going through at the moment.
Like you’ve lost all your will to live and to even try to make things better. You are led by all those negative circumstances without even trying to impact them anymore and you’ve allowed your inner demons to consume you completely.
It doesn’t matter that the people around you keep telling you that everything happens for a reason or that there is some good in everything bad. You simply can’t believe in any of this, because pessimism has overwhelmed you to the point where you don’t see a way out.
Well, let me tell you one thing—these are not empty phrases or things people say just to comfort you. These are not clichés you are supposed to believe in just to feel better in a given moment.
This really is the only truth—God always has a purpose for you, even when you don’t see it. You don’t have to believe me now but eventually you’ll see that sometimes He always has a plan which we are usually not aware of.
Just remember—when God breaks you, He is only doing it so He can fix you later on. He is just doing it to repair you and to make you become the best possible version of yourself.
And this is exactly what’s happening to you right now. You are probably wondering what you did to deserve all of this pain and when it will stop. But what you keep forgetting is that God never sends you more than you can take.
So, if you are going through a lot right now, it means He believes in you more than you believe in yourself. It means you are much stronger than you think and it means that you will make it.
Please, trust me on this one—all of this pain is actually good for you because it is shaping you into the woman you are destined to become. All of these challenges and temptations are there to toughen you up and to help you see everything you are capable of.
They are there to help you see that there doesn’t exist a problem you can’t solve or a difficulty you can’t overcome. That you should always hope for the best, even against all odds.
They are there to help you restore your faith and to make you believe in yourself. To make you believe in God’s plan and in His love for you.
Remember that everything you are going through is nothing but a test of your strength and power. A test which you will pass and which will help you see how brave and badass you actually are.
So please, start seeing your struggles as blessings from God because these are exactly what they are. Start seeing them as tough but valuable lessons which will teach you everything you need to know about life and which will help you become wiser and smarter.
Even if it is the hardest thing for you to do now, be thankful for all the negative experiences and all the bad people destiny has sent your way. Consider yourself lucky for every obstacle you encounter and start seeing them as a way to lift your spirit up and to reach your full potential.
Just be patient enough and trust me—everything will fall into place before you know it. Have faith that everything has a deeper cause and a bigger purpose you might not even be aware of. That not one of these things you are going through is pointless and that these dark times will come to an end sooner or later.
