Whomever you may be, whatever you may be going through, just know…you can’t quit, it gets better! Although you may not be able to see the silver lining or the light at the end of the tunnel. Believe me…it gets better! It’s ok that you had to cry yourself to sleep last night and you feel like you don’t know how you’re going to make it. But…It gets better! I know right now you may feel like “God why me?” or “What did I do to deserve this?” However, instead of asking those questions, look at it like, you were specifically chosen to go through whatever it is that you’re going through. God knew you were capable of handling it, He knew that you would be able to make it through the storm and tell someone else how to make it through. Some people have gone through what you’re going through and took their own lives. But the fact that you’re still here, and still fighting, is a victory in itself. I know I say this all the time, but your yesterday happened like it did so that your tomorrow can happen like it should. Think about it….If that person wouldn’t have told you that you couldn’t do it, would you have even tried? Had they not walked out on you, would you have ended up with the person of your dreams? If they wouldn’t have told you “No” when you applied for that job, would you have started your own company? If that situation wouldn’t have knocked you to your knees, would you have prayed? Change is a part of life, and as painful as it may be it’s necessary. But you can’t allow the changes of life cause you to quit. Muhammad Ali once said, “Don’t quit, suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion”. I can hear you now…And you’re right, it’s much easier to be optimistic when things are going well and you can see your own way out. But if seeing is believing, then where does your faith come in?
Believe me, I was once in your shoes, at times I feel like I still am…but I know it gets better!
