I wrote this quite a few years ago when I was going through a pretty rough time in my life. It’s something that I look back on quite often to remind myself of my struggles that have ultimately turned into my strength. So, for those of you who may be feeling a little down about life right now, I hope you read this and find some encouragement to keep on keeping on because you’re every bit deserving of a beautiful and amazing life ❤
I’ve learned lately that things will never go as they seem, and unexpected things will happen with such bad timing. People will come and go throughout life & some may hurt you more than you ever thought they could. I’ve realized that the truth really does hurt, & there’s some pain and guilt that will never go away. Bad things happen so that good things may eventually fall into place, even though that may seem impossible at the moment. Behind every person’s smile is a soul full of deep hurt, emotion, fear, hope, guilt, disappointment, unhappiness, happiness, and love.
We become scared of our own fears; scared of losing those we love, scared of the hard things we have to face, scared of the future, and just scared of life itself. Who knows what it has in store for us? And how will it affect the person that you may become? Life can’t be lived out of fear and regrets, and everything has got to happen for a reason. Those reasons are unknown, and it seems so unfair, but maybe it’s better off that way. It’s better as a mystery.
When you feel like you’ve hit rock bottom, & you’ve completely broken down, remember those who love you, those who care about you, those who would do anything to take away the pain you’re feeling because it hurts them to see you in so much pain. Remember those that you know you can depend on, those you know you can trust, those who won’t judge you and love you for exactly who you are, and those that deserve to be remembered & never forgotten. They are the ones that matter. They are the ones to be appreciated, & they are the ones that need you in their lives just as much as you need them in yours. Remind yourself that no matter how hard life may get, it will only build you as a stronger person with an even bigger heart, despite however many times it’s been broken or ripped apart. Be thankful for what you do have, and appreciate God for giving you a life to cherish every moment, every minute, and every second of everyday.
