Hey guys! Welcome back. I hope you are having a great day so far. I’ve been back and forth these past couple of months about the way things have been going. Sometimes it seems like things are going right and sometimes it seems like things just keep going wrong. I think that’s how life goes in general. But I wanted to share some reminders for if you are in a point where everything seem to keep going wrong so hopefully you can find some inspiration or encouragement. Life can be challenging sometimes, but these reminders can help.
You can’t control what happens to you.
You are not in as much control as you think you are or you would like to be. There are things that happen, people who do things, and situations that come up that we simply cannot control. So just know when things are going wrong that it may not be something that you have done or something you can control. All you can do is control your own actions and reactions to the things going on in your life. Do your best to remain strong and positive in the times of darkness because nothing lasts forever. Release the need to control everything and just do what you can.
You will get through this.
Life happens. Bad things happen. No one is exempt from things going wrong. We all have times when we struggle and times when nothing goes the way we want them to. But one thing I know for sure is that no matter what it is, you will get through it. You have a strength inside of you that no one else has. You have what you need to get through it. It doesn’t mean you won’t struggle. It simply means that you can and you will get through whatever it is. Everything happens for a reason and nothing that is happening right now will last.
You don’t have to learn anything.
I know I said everything happens for a reason and I truly believe that. But I don’t think everything necessarily happens because you are supposed to learn something. Sometimes things just happen simply to put you back on the right track. Whether you lose something, gain something, learn something, or your life simply shifts a little, everything has a reason for happening. You don’t always have to see the silver lining. You don’t always have to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Sometimes you just have to get through it one day at a time.
You are not alone.
It’s easy when we are going through something that is incredibly difficult or painful to feel like we are alone and our struggles are our burden to deal with. But I want you to know that in two ways you are not alone. First, you are not alone in what you are going through. You are most likely not the first person who has ever gone through. There are others who have gone through what you are going through. You are also not alone in your life. Even if there are people who don’t care and you know they don’t care, there is always someone who does.
You can make a change.
Life is hard sometimes. We go through things and we struggle in ways we sometimes least expect. But I want you to remember that when life gets challenging and things become unbearable that you can make a change. It can be difficult because we often don’t love change, but change can be a really good thing. Change gives you a new opportunity and a new way to be in control. It changes things. You have the option to do the things you want to do if you are willing to follow through and put in the work to make them happen.
Life is not perfect and you are not perfect. But that doesn’t mean that your life is worth any less. Stay strong in the midst of the chaos and great things are sure to come after.
