Tough situations build strong people
I’m a firm believer in the saying “that which does not kill us makes us stronger”. In fact, most of the challenges I’ve faced over the past few years have been met with this approach and not only have they forced me to develop myself in ways I never thought possible, but they have also forced me to see the wider picture and develop resilience for anything that may come my way in the future.
All of us (I’m sure) at some point in our lives, have gone through something so shocking, heartbreaking and life-changing that it hit us right where it hurts. I’m equally sure of the fact that despite it knocking us for a six, most of us have still managed to get up and fight that little bit harder; either for ourselves and for our own personal development, or for others. Whatever the reason for fighting back may have been, I think it’s important to remember that we, as individuals, are much stronger than we think and the inherent strength within us can be unlocked when the right opportunity presents itself.
Now, I don’t claim to be a therapist nor someone trained to give medical advice, but I do know one thing and it’s this: life’s too short to be second guessing every move you make; it’s too fleeting to be crying over a situation that can’t be changed; and it’s way too precious to not make the most of what you’ve got. Embrace the changes, power through the setbacks and have compassion for those around you; for they may be fighting a battle you know absolutely nothing about.
We all have those voices inside our head telling us we can’t do something or that we’re not good enough. Sometimes, we may even have the voices outside of our head in the form of people we love telling us we can’t do this or we can’t do that. But, if you can rise above it all and constantly work hard to be the best version of yourself, nothing else matters. You can achieve anything you set your mind to by using both the negativity and positivity you face, to propel yourself into the future you desire.
