Advice & Self-help | For your future self

IMG_3905.JPG

I see people sharing inspirational quotes like this all the time. I’m the sort to scroll past them most often and even more likely to not even read what they say.

So why? You might ask did I choose to read this one, save it and then repost it here? Well I’ve not had a good week recently and this quote reminded me that even when I want to do nothing but lay on the sofa and sleep, I am strong enough to face what life has thrown at me.

I am strong enough to look after my daughter, to stand up to bullies, shut them out of my life and know that I am doing what is best for my child.

I have always been a people pleaser, more often than not to the detriment of my own happiness, but not anymore. I know I have to be happy in order to be able to do what I have to do in life.

Everyone is strong enough to live the life we’re given, sometimes we may not think it, sometimes we don’t come out of life’s hardships the same person but that new person will be strong enough to take on the new challenges.

Each time life gives us a setback we either fight, or we run. Sometimes running is the way to go about it, but most often fighting and not in the bare knuckle, punch ’em in the face kind either and learning how to overcome the hurdles makes us stronger and better people.

Next time something comes up in your life and your first instinct is to run away, don’t. Stay, fight and make yourself a stronger and more determined person.

Your future self will thank you, trust me.
