There are some people who walk through life, confidence in tact, never giving you the impression that anything could be wrong in their lives.
Does this woman look peaceful or lonely?
There are those who have lived a privileged life and know nothing else. Though, if you were to ask some of them, they would tell you they are not all happy.
There are those who have nothing, come from nothing, to make their way, to live a life that they can be proud of, because they want it bad enough.
It is easy to get overwhelmed in a sea of emotion!
All of us live a life. Some of us live it better than others. Some of us choose not to live at all, because it is hard, or sad or too much work. Others choose to bury themselves in bottles, drugs, or anything that will dull their pain.
Then there are people who had a hard time growing up, due to circumstances beyond their control, living with the life they were dealt. But those same beings chose to change because circumstances change, life changes and you can change as well. You just have to find the way.
FInd a way to keep going - life can be a party, at least sometimes!
Others were born into a life that is a constant struggle, pain and hardship. Some don’t survive this life. Some do. Some don’t want to and some never look back once they leave it behind. You may be in the middle of any of these types of life right now.
It is important to see yourself, love yourself and move forward. Yes, this is easier said than done. But know that you are not alone, that others have done it. Find those others, ask for help.
Be strong enough to remain in the game!
Keep placing one foot in front of the other, every moment of every day.
All of these ways of life lead us ---- somewhere.
You can be the person who gets past it all, who gets to thrive in the end and help others in turn. And you can be that person who has conquered issues, dealt with problems and moved on and away from those issues within your life.
You get to choose which way to go!
But recognise that you can do these things one small step at a time. Maybe going to the mirror and telling yourself that you love yourself is the first step. Maybe holding someone’s hand when they are sad would be just what they need, and you. Smiling at someone on the street, could be all it takes. How about complimenting someone on how they look, how they are dressed or how beautiful their smile is? These are all little things, but can have huge impact.
And know that every time you have won out over an issue that threatened to swallow you up that you have moved ever closer to the person you want to be. You only need to recognise it.
No – that is not easy either. But keep going, keep moving, keep looking.
Ask, ask again, and move forward. Choose to be the strength in your life that you need.
Love yourself, just a little. Then you can love yourself a little more. One day you will find that you can love yourself a lot.
There are so many people out there who have gone before you, find them, listen to them, try what they have tried. Keep going.
Forward, ever forward, leads you to the next path, the next door, the next moment, when something, anything, becomes the thing you needed to find.
And you realize how far you have come. Now just keep going.
