Hey guys! Welcome back. I wanted to make a quick disclaimer. I am the world’s worst person at taking my own advice. I listen to other people and take their advice, but when it comes to myself I just don’t listen. Anyone else have that problem?
Getting knocked down is not new to the world. At some point in everyone’s life we get knocked down. Either by our own mistakes, someone else’s mistake, something hurting us, some reason beyond our control, etc. The point is, it happens. I’ve been knocked down my fair share of times. But one thing I have learned is that it’s not how you get knocked down that matters. It’s how you get back up that is important.
I have been extremely blessed these past couple of years. I have been given the opportunity to pursue a college education. I now have an amazing, supportive family, I started this blog, I found my niche in life, and I’m basically a happy person.
It wasn’t always like this though. I suffered through abuse as a child, dealt with a narcissistic mother, and was very poor. I was often terrified and cried myself to sleep. Needless to say I didn’t have a happy childhood. But it got better and I knew it would. I struggled a lot growing up, but I never wanted to do anything harmful because I had hope. I’m not sure where that hope came from, but it was there regardless.
I made it through and got back every time something knocked me down because I knew it had to get better. I knew that one day it all had to work out. I knew that one day I would get what I wanted and be free. So that is what I want you to remember. Whether it’s a bad day, a bad week, a bad month, a bad year, whatever it may be. It doesn’t rain forever. Your life isn’t perfect, but no one else can or should do it for you.
So I hope that you find the hope I have. And I hope you get everything straightened out and you can be happy. If you are struggling, remember your goals in life and what you want and focus on that. Love yourself and be kind to yourself. Make you a priority. Don’t worry about things you can’t control.
If you are dealing with something, think of it like this. Think about the situation. If there is something you can do about it, then do it. If there is nothing you can do about it, let it go. I know that is easier said than done sometimes, but you just have to practice at it. Nothing worth anything in life comes easy. I know the struggles and challenges we face sometimes seem like they are more than we can handle, but I promise if you just stick through it you can and will overcome it.
Find people that love you and care about you and talk to them. Let them know what you are dealing with and struggling with. Talk to them about how you are feeling. They may be able to offer advice or help you, and then again they may just be able to listen. But find people you can trust and open up. It might help.
That is it for this. I hope it helped. Be sure to like this if you want to see more posts like this. Comment below how you deal with hard times and let’s help each other out. Don’t forget to like this before you leave and I will see you next time.
