There is not a problem in this entire world that someone else hasn't already gone through.
What ever it is that you are struggling with, someone else has and or is currently going through it as well.
Someone woke up this morning, looked at their life and said nope, not today.
They decided that they rather not deal with it and said their problems could wait until tomorrow but....
Seriously, why put off what you can start handling today for a day that isnt' promised?
We even look at other people's lives and covet what they have instead of going out there and accomplishing things for our selves.
Their life might look fabulous but truth is you don't know what that person went through to get where they are today.
They had to go through something in order to reach the level that they are on.
Let's do a quick break down of what it means to go through
Through is defined as moving in on one side and coming out of the other side.
It's quite simple; if you are going through something it means that you have to come out of it.
You were not meant to stay in your current situation however, how you choose to emerge is entirely up to you.
You can come out defeated, broken, and numb; woe is me, my life is over, I will never love again, and all that jazz.
Or you can come out with a new sense of accomplishment, joy, and peace; the journey sucked but at least learned something that will benefit me in the future and I don't have to go through it again.
What we fail to realize and comprehend is that every situation is is a life lesson. There is not a situation that you go through that you do not learn from.
If you find yourself going through the same frustrating situations and you can't figure out why, the answer is quite simple.
You are not learning anything from them.
You are going through the emotions and you're not thinking about what got you in the predicament in the first place.You are allowing yourself to become stagnant and comfortable in a place that is only temporary.
I've had my vehicle repossessed before in the middle of the night. I had to call out of work and I had to ask for rides to and from work. This was a temporary solution to a long term problem. I was not satisfied and comfortable with asking people for rides everyday. It was already embarrassing that my vehicle was repo'd and on top of that I felt like I was a burden to my friends and family. I feared that they would get frustrated with having to pick me up and drop me off everyday from 8 to 5.
Throughout this situation I learned that it is okay to ask for help and that pride will get you nowhere. I was able to spend time with my close friends that I rarely see, enjoy some quality time with myself, and save my money until I was able to purchase a new vehicle that was newer model and cheaper than the one I had.
I know for a fact that other people have gone through the same situation. Granted, while going through I felt like the only who has ever been in that predicament. My feels were screaming at people to just shut up because you could not possibly know the pain of losing a materialistic possession that I was going through.
We have to stop allowing our emotions to dictate our actions. We shut down doors before they are even open by our attitudes, mindsets, and emotions
Yes, you are upset.
Yes, you are going through something and you don't see how you are going to get out of it.
No, it does not give you an excuse to make excuses.
Stop making excuses of why you can't and try to do everything in your power to can. After you are done trying, keep on trying. Don't stop moving until you are living beyond what you imagined for yourself.
The hardest part about going through something isn't believing in everyone that believes in you; it's believing in yourself.
You are your own worst enemy. You are harder on yourself than anyone else. You have to take that initiative to motivate yourself so that you can keep on moving and striving towards the end of your through.
No, it will not be easy.
Yes, you will fail and fall short.
Yes, you will want to give up.
No, this is not a valid reason to give up
Pull the wedgie out of your butt and just do it.
Stop complaining that it's uncomfortable when you have the power to change your situation. You have all of the tools, resources, and support that you need in order to conquer any and everything that the world throws at you. Get out of your emotions, put faith into action, get to work....wedgie free.
