The thing about life is it’s not always easy, and you can’t always win. At some point in life, it hits you. It hits you really hard. The person you love doesn’t love you back, you get fired, you lose a family member. At some point in your life, you’re gonna hit rock bottom.
You’re paralyzed, you’re like, ”why?” and that why can really really destroy you. Once you start asking yourself ”why me?” why not the others, why me? I’m actually a good person, I never did something significantly bad, why the hell did it hit me? Because that’s life.
Life is unfair. Success is not measured on the days when the sun shines. Success is honestly measured on the dark, stormy, cloudy days. And if you can’t absorb failure, the honest truth is that you may never meet success.
Sometimes it takes things falling apart, for better things to fall into place. Sometimes it takes the most uncomfortable path, to lead your life to the most beautiful place. There’s gonna be bad days, there’s gonna be dark days, but you need to embrace it. Because that pain is what makes you stronger. Failure is what makes you stronger. you have to accept those down times, because once you realize those down times, are just as much part of life as anything else, you are then able to strive again.
You’ll never see the purpose of the storm, until you see the growth it has produced. You will never understand why you went through, until you see the strength, the power, the resilience that it built inside of you. Ask yourself why. But this is a better why, “why am I doing this? Why am I failing? Why am I even getting myself in a situation where I could fail? Because I have a dream. Because I have goals. And the more you’re thinking back to those original goals, the easier it is for you to get back up and say “Alright, it might be difficult, it might be painful, it might be stressful, there might be no people that believe in me, but i believe in me.”
You know it might have been the case that you should have gone through that harsh break up, that you should have gone through that heavy loss, just in order to find something even better. The only way to get that even better, is to get back up and work. To get back up and put yourself out there again, to rise up again, stronger, better, wiser, ready to grasp that new opportunity.
You gotta believe that the tables in your life will turn. That pain will become power, that weakness will become strength, and that confusion will become peace. Better things are coming. Everyday is a new beginning.
