“Everything’s going to be okay”
It’s been quite a ride these past two years. As I reflect back from 2020 when I personally would say has been one of my toughest mental battles up to now. I have came a really far way. I won’t go too deep with this post because I do plan on writing a book and write/talk explicitly about my personal thoughts and life experiences.
“I can’t do this anymore! I don’t know if I can do this.” Is something I said out loud, while covered in tears when I was alone and by myself.
Fast forward to today. I did overcome that mental barrier. I not only overcame that time of my life, but I conquered it.
I know I haven’t posted much recently, but something felt like I needed to share this with you. See, I had thought that I couldn’t get through it, that I couldn’t handle it, that life wasn’t worth living, and I was certain that thing’s would never get better. But they did!
Whatever it is you are going through, YOU CAN get through it. I don’t have to know you to know that YOU ARE strong! I don’t. You and I both know that you have probably have told yourself before, or maybe even today.. “I can’t do this..” “thing’s won’t get better..” “life isn’t fair..” “why is this happening to me..” “I am tired of trying..” etc. And not only do you tell yourself this, but you believe it because no one seems to understand, or can ever really relate to you to come close to even understand.
Read this, save this, screen shot this, write this! Really I mean it!!
“I AM going to get through this.”
“I AM loved and never alone.”
“I AM stronger than I think.”
“The words that follow ‘I AM’ follow you.”
Speak kindly towards yourself, okay.. everything’s going to be okay.
PS: Next time you see yourself in the reflection of a mirror, smile! And say something kind to yourself.. you deserve it.
