There are days I want to shut down and lay in bed all day. I feel tired, lost, and unable to keep going. Stress and depression take over and take its toll on me.
Giving up is certainly the easy way out, but it’s not an option. I wanted to give up many times before and I’m more than happy with the choice I made to keep going.
We are all meant to be here. We all have a purpose.
Life has a funny way of showing us sometimes, but we are meant to live a happy and fulfilling life.
It’s hard to have a positive outlook when financial struggles, illness, death, job loss, natural disasters, and relationship struggles occur. We don’t realize it when unfortunate events happen at the time, but those occurrences build strength and understanding within us.
Looking back at my financial loss, abuse, poor relationships, and loss of loved ones, I grew and have learned tremendously from those instances. Death is unfortunately inevitable, but it taught me that it’s beyond important to spend as much time as I can with my family and friends. My financial situation was awful years ago, but it showed me what not to do to get myself into that situation again and makes me more grateful of how financially stable I am today.
As much as it hurt to go through some of the situations I have faced, those situations have taught me unexpected lessons and made me into the person I am today. Without struggle, there is no progress.
The hardest situations eventually come to an end. Every storm runs out of rain. Hang on and take it one day at a time.
There are brighter chapters ahead.
