I felt like I should write a post about this right now for everyone, including myself, who may need to hear this.
I know that sometimes life can seem rough. I know that sometimes it seems like nobody understands. Sometimes people really, truly don’t understand at all. Some people seem to take joy in bringing us down. Whether people mean it or not, there are always people out there who will end up bringing us down. There will always be that comment that shows up, stinging you and hanging in the air, ruining everything. There will always be a moment in life that you wish to forget, or you wish were different. It could last 5 seconds or 5 years. There will always be something that you struggle with. Something that you may be able to move past some days, and some days… Some days you will have struggles that seem impossible to face. They will haunt you. They will crush you. Whatever this struggle is, there are days where you just want to back down and let it take over.
Don’t let it.
Please, please, do not let it.
You can take a stand. I know it’s hard. Oh, it is so hard. But you can fight it. I know you can. I believe in you. And while it is hard, once you do it… It’s amazing.
I can’t tell you that it will be quick. Some struggles take years to conquer. But if you don’t work at it, it won’t go away.
Things get better. I know that sounds cheesy, but they do eventually. And you get stronger. So even if things still aren’t perfect, you know how to deal with it.
Sometimes it’s stupid, close-minded people that bring us down. Sometimes we can all be a little stupid and ignorant. But that’s okay. We’re all human and make mistakes. We all find a way to fix it in the end.
But somewhere, among the stupid, ignorant people… There’s someone who cares. It could be a friend. A family member. Someone who is rooting you on from afar, who sees you as a role model. Someone out there cares. Maybe you just haven’t met them yet, or they can’t tell you right now. But believe me. There’s someone out there worth moving on for.
Maybe it’s yourself.
You can make it.
You can fight it.
I believe in you.
