Remember That Life Is Not A Straight Road

When you feel alone…

When you feel like nobody understands your pain…

When you feel like you’re all that you have left…

Remember, life will sometimes test you. You will feel the urge to die at times. You will feel like everything that was good that happened was a sham. Don’t give up.

You’re not here to live a perfect life of happiness 100% of the time. You’re here to grow, to learn to accept the things which you have no control over. You are here to believe that things would get better even when  you currently see no reason to believe so.

And when you look around you, and see no hope for a miracle, trust that the path laid out for you will eventually lead you to your desired destination – or an even better one.

Life will not be like a straight road that you drive on smoothly. Life would be like a curvy road on which there are potholes available. Navigating this path will mean you would have to develop the necessary coping skills needed to become good at doing the one thing that you may suck at.

Appreciate those who’ve become family to you. Be thankful for your life journey so far. Take some moment to embrace yourself. Life can be worth it because you showed up.

Life is not a straight road. Remember that. It would help you keep your hope alive.

DON’T LET THE BAD DAYS HOLD YOU BACK

There comes the time when you feel the world on your shoulders. You feel like turning back. You feel the world is about to break your back. The load is too heavy. The pain is too much. The loss is to heavy.

You can’t quantify it.

I’ve been there too. That tells you that you’re not a lone.

How to deal with pain or loss

What I did was this…

I let the pain flow through me. I didn’t let it control me.

There reason is because pain – stress – loss – whatever you decide to call it, is a toxic emotion. They are negative in nature. They are not good in nature. They’re not good for you level of productivity and they’re certainly not good for your health.

What is that negative emotion that you’re feeling today?

Don’t let it get stuck inside you.

You deserve better.

Things may not go as planned for your right now…but not to worry. Everything will turn out fine.

It may not be today or tomorrow morning…

If you don’t let your bad days hold you back, you victory will be celebrated at the end of the tunnel. And of course, that’s where the light is – at the end of the tunnel.
