When you feel life's kicking your behind, you can choose to make things worse or focus on what you still have left. It's easier to fight when you remind yourself of all the reasons you already have to choose the best possible scenario.
You didn't come this far only to get this far. When everything is falling apart, the easy thing to do is to let yourself fall apart as well. But, it's incredible how much strength you have, and you merely need a small reminder that the sun will eventually come up. Maybe not tomorrow, but soon enough.
This too shall pass
You might feel as if your hands are tied, and the only thing left is to stay optimistic. Nothing lasts forever, and not everything has to make sense.
When you find yourself in a difficult spot, remember all the storms you already concurred. And remind yourself that so many things seemed impossible, yet they came true. You got this, and time's on your side.
Worry is a waste of time
Every single hard situation offers you at least two choices: to stick to facts or to get overwhelmed and helpless. It seems more comfortable to surrender yourself to despair, but in the long run, you're not doing yourself any favors.
Keep your strength and energy to keep up the good fight. Your best resources are already inside you, but overstressing will only make them less accessible. You can't rush certain things in life, but you can be patient and gentle with yourself, so your mind will feel comfortable enough to start making rational decisions.
You live, you learn
Every mistake and wrong turn is a chance to learn. No, you didn't ask for another life lesson, and you feel mad because you had so many exciting plans. But, that's not how life works.
You can spend the rest of your life asking why, how, and all the questions you know you won't be able to answer. Or you get to learn more about yourself and to teach yourself some valuable lessons. Sometimes we need a big push to realize how powerful we are.
Focus on yourself
If you can figure things out, you will be able to help others. That's why it's crucial to put yourself first and use your powers to stay collected and present. If you're feeling pain, that means you're growing. And no, it's not fair, but that's the way things are.
Accept your situation and give yourself the best care imaginable. A tough position requires you to stay positive. People will look for the worst, but you shouldn't let them feed you their negativity. You'll gladly share your optimism, but at the end of the day, this is your fight, and you'll do what's best for you.
Count your blessings
There's something compelling and humbling if you remember to be grateful when the disaster strikes. Instead of using your time to dwell, or throwing a pity party, list all the things you already have, as all the great people in your life.
Challenge the way you think, by breaking old patterns and replacing them with gratitude. It's the only mind game you can benefit from. And it will help you move mountains because that's some twisted way of the world showing you that you can take any punch.
We all have our battles because life's not smooth sailing. And we are all the better at giving than receiving advice, no matter how great. Still, try to remember the most important parts of what you just read: positivity, gratitude, and calmness. It might save you from additional troubles and make you stronger and more prepared for future strains. Additionally, it can make each day more manageable, so you'll have more energy and time to enjoy life.
