We all face difficult times in our lives. When life doesn’t go our way, it is how we choose to react to these tough times, and unpleasant situations that can make or break us. Here are some things to remember when we are struggling with arduous, burdensome and painful situations.
Nothing is Permanent
Every day is a new beginning. Yes, every night is dark,but every morning the sun comes up. Things may not be good now but eventually the situation will change. The pain won’t last forever. Take every new day and make the best of it.
Our Scars Show Strength, Not Weakness!
Bad experiences don’t damage us, they make us stronger. We may have emotional scars, but those wounds have healed and the hurt is over. We have learned from the experience, and the scars we have are the proof that we can overcome ANYTHING!
We Can Stay Positive When Others Are Negative
There will always be people in our lives that will bring us down, but we do not have to listen to them! We must keep smiling and focus on being positive. Remember,negative people are unhappy. They will try to drag us down to their level. But, we can choose not to listen. We are our own person, and we don’t have to deal with problems by being negative. This is OUR Choice – (Negativity is their choice, not ours!)
When We Are Struggling, We Must Keep Moving FORWARD
The struggles we face will help us grow, develop and progress through life so that we can find true happiness. Our struggle will be worth it, so it is important that we work through our difficult times.
Fear Changes Nothing
It is important that we focus on the best things that could happen, instead of the worst things. If we only focused on the bad, we would never be able to reach our full potential. We need to stay motivated and take risks.
We Need To Keep Going
When life knocks us down, we need to get back up! Again, and Again and Again. We are strong. We can do it! Then we will always be ready for whatever life throws our way!
Whenever I feel defeated, and feel like I can’t get back up, I think of Sia’s dong, “I am Titanium!” It makes me feel empowered, and I choose to become bulletproof, and make a choice not to allow any situation, that life throws my way, or anyone, to exert their ” power ” over me. Nothing is going to knock me down !
How about you? Will you choose to get back up and keep going when life throws bad situations at you? Tell us in the comments below how you move forward and stay strong when life doesn’t go your way!
Instead of fantasizing about how life should be, accept what life really is. Then choose how to live it!
You Are Awesome!
