I feel like majority of the time I'm a bit hard on myself. We are our own worst enemy and sometimes we can be a little self critical. There's all these things that I want for myself but amidst that, I fail to see all that I've done and accomplished. Everyone has a story and a past and sometimes we forget how much we've made it through to get where we are now. Nothing comes easy and I think I fail to remember that you have to go through some shit to get to the top. I can't always have it all at this moment, things take time, and I have things to learn; but I need to remember that I'm learning and that's what counts.
If you had no ups and downs in life then you'd be dead. Being able to persevere through the hardest times in life and continue to move forward is what makes a strong person. Nothing worth having comes easy and if that were the case there would be a lot of things out in this world that held no value to us simply because anybody would be able to have it. A strong person isn't someone who goes through nothing and is perfect, it's someone who knows loss and struggle and still chooses to be courageous enough to keep going. You have to keep reminding yourself that you ARE strong. You CAN get through this tough time. Be proud of how far you've come and know that God didn't give you this trial if he didn't think you could get through it. No one is perfect and those who can overcome obstacles and still wake up with a strong mindset are the strongest of them all. You're here, you're breathing, you have a chance, never ever give up!
