Have you ever felt like you just can’t take it anymore, as much as you try your best to keep going?
Like you’ve reached the end of your strength? As if you can’t continue fighting as much as you want to?
Have you ever felt so overwhelmed and exhausted that you can’t get out of bed? So tired and drained that you would just like to spend the rest of your life crying your soul out?
Have you ever felt that you’ve lost all purpose? That there is nothing you could possibly do to make things in your life better and for you to start feeling like your old self?
If you have, let me tell you that you are not the only one. None of this makes you weak, and it definitely doesn’t make you a lost cause.
Let me tell you that we’ve all had days in our lives on which we’ve felt as if we’ve lost all our hope.
Days on which we’ve felt like we are about to fall without the chance of ever rising again.
Days on which we’ve felt like we’ve reached our breaking point without the chance of ever putting ourselves back together.
But here we are, stronger than everything that was bringing us down . Here we are, standing firmly on our feet, more powerful and badass than ever.
And you are no exception. This is exactly how you feel right now.
And you will survive all of this as well, even though you don’t think this way now.
That is why I am here to tell you that all of these emotions are just temporary. I am here to tell you to try your best to look at everything from a brighter perspective and to always remember that tomorrow is a new day.
That is why I am here to tell you never to forget that everything happens for a reason. That there are times when God breaks you just so he can fix you.
That there are some painful moments in your life which will turn out to be your most valuable lessons. That one day, you’ll be grateful for everything you are going through right now.
I don’t know what exactly bothers you. Maybe you are going through some family problems or maybe your relationship has reached its end.
Maybe you haven’t accomplished as much as you hoped you would or a person close to you betrayed and abandoned you when you needed them the most.
Or maybe you are just going through a rough patch without any particular reason.
But at the end of the day, the cause of your misery isn’t really relevant. What is important is your reaction to it.
What is important is this all-consuming feeling you have which is putting pressure on your chest and which can’t seem to go away.
And what is even more important is for you to know how strong you are . You’ve made it through much worse situations, and you will survive this one, as well.
Please, don’t lose your hope and your faith that things will find the best way of sorting themselves out. Don’t ever allow yourself to stop being positive and optimistic.
Instead of focusing on the things that aren’t functioning the best at this moment, focus on those parts of your life you are doing great in.
Focus on the things you’ve accomplished, on the scars you’ve healed, and on the heartbreaks you’ve managed to survive.
Because that is the only thing that counts. Don’t think about the number of times you’ve fallen.
Think about all the times you’ve managed to rise from the ashes.
Don’t think about your vulnerabilities and weaknesses because they don’t define you and never will. Think of your strength and power, and how they will show you the way out of this misery you are feeling right now.
Instead of putting yourself down and being so hard on yourself, give yourself a break. Be proud about achieving this much and never lose faith in your ability to accomplish even more.
Instead of giving up, continue fighting. Keep trying and keep struggling. Because that is the only way to reach your full potential and come out on top.
And most importantly, instead of beating yourself up and blaming yourself for everything bad that happens in your life, start loving yourself a little bit more .
Start appreciating and respecting your own efforts, and everyone else will follow.
