Maneuvering through life can be extremely frustrating. But, it’s also quite amazing how you can feel like completely giving up and something or someone comes by (discreetly or indiscreetly) to keep you pushing forward.
While struggling can feel as if every piece of you is being broken down to nothing, it’s actually building you up to become everything you can be.
It’s all about perspective, persistence and progress. Your perspective is what will allow you to focus on the positive while being surrounded by the negative. Your persistence is what leads to your progress.
Every person suffers a battle that may or may not be immediately obvious. So many face tribulations that shake their very core.
Just remember, there is always a way out of the darkness – perspective, persistence and progress.
I’ve experienced some pretty trying times in my own life. I know what it feels like to be at the bottom of my sanity and grasping to hold on. The beautiful thing about my trials is that they’re mine. I definitely wouldn’t want to face them again, but I brace for them. I know that if and when they happen, I’m ready. They have molded me and taught me to take roads I may not have taken without the painful experience each provided.
I am who I am because of my struggle.
Just like exercising and building muscle, when you’re fighting back, you’re getting stronger – even when you feel weak.
One day, you’ll look back at your struggle and see how every lesson is a piece of your puzzle. Your life will constantly change course – trust your struggle.
