6 Things to remember when going through tough times

There are moments in everyone’s life when it seems that everything falls apart. It is a part of living, and it is by going through these difficult, tough times that we are able to grow as human beings.

I wrote this post for anyone who is going through a difficult time and I really hope that these words can help you find some strength to get through this tough time in your life. Or at the very least offer you some comfort. Life can sometimes feel too difficult, too overwhelming, and unfair but whatever it is that you are going through right now, regardless of how low and defeated you may feel, I want you to know that this is not the end. Life has so much in store for you.

It’s okay to not be okay all the time

What you’re feeling is valid. The pain that you’re feeling is valid. All the emotions are valid. And it’s okay to cry. It’s okay to feel. Being vulnerable it’s not a sign of weakness, it’s an act of courage. You don’t have to keep pushing your emotions and feelings aside. Know that it’s completely okay for you to not have it all together all the time.

You’re not alone

Remember, no matter what you’re going through, you’re not alone. Share what you’re feeling, reach out for help and you’ll see that there are so many people in your situation. And somebody will care about you. Somebody will listen and is going to be by your side.

Spend time with yourself and reflect

Find comfort in being alone and spend that time in reflection without any judgment. Ask yourself  “What can I learn from this moment?”,  “How can I grow through this?”.

Everything happens for a reason. Even if it’s just a lesson to learn and grow into a better person.

Express gratitude

Sometimes, it’s so easy to focus solely on the negative things that are happening right this moment that we cannot see all the good things we do have. Even when you are experiencing a tough time in your life, there is something to be grateful for in those moments as well. Every painful experience will become a stronger you.

Everything will be okay

Nothing in life is permanent. Tough times never last forever. Whatever it is that you’re feeling now, you don’t have to feel this way for the rest of your life. You have the power to change it. Your present situation doesn’t have to be your final destination. Also, time heals, always.

Every struggle is an opportunity for growth

Struggles, difficulties, and experiences are needed in order for us to grow, in order for us to succeed, become a better version of ourselves, and become the person we are meant to be.

Each adversity that we face teaches us a lesson. They prepare us for the next step that we need to take to achieve our greatest purpose.

If you’re struggling, you deserve to make self-care a priority. Whether that means lying in bed all day, eating comfort food, crying, sleeping, rescheduling plans, watching your favorite tv show, or doing nothing at all — give yourself permission to put your healing first. Quiet the voice telling you to do more and be more, and today, whatever you do, let it be enough. Feel your feelings, breathe, and be gentle with yourself. Acknowledge that you’re doing the best you can to cope and survive. And trust that during this time of struggle, it’s enough.

You can still achieve your goals and make your dreams a reality. You are strong enough to pass this. You can still be happy.  Take it one day at a time, take one step at a time and you will get there. Keep going, keep believing in yourself, and know that you are enough.

You can do this and I believe in you ❤️
