Well hello there. If you’re reading this, chances are that you probably know me and I know you too. And from my limited perspective, things are fine for you (or at least I hope so).
But there are always struggles that others can’t see, battles that you fight for yourself, and sometimes even against yourself too. Obviously, I can’t see your struggles, if there are any.
If you feel things are tough right now, remember that they always were. It was you who got stronger. It was you who fought back. Stuff felt hard in 1st grade too. Can the same things that made you upset back in 1st grade, make you upset again? Of course not, right.
Its because you outgrew them, you overcame them. You left them so far behind that they can never haunt you again, never scare you again.
Besides, you overcame absolutely 100% of your life’s challenges. If you didn’t you wouldn’t be here, isn’t it? Think about it.
Know that things are gonna get both, better and tougher, one followed by another. You’ll be strong enough to crush them.
Having said that, I’d like to talk to you about when things are good, when they’re smooth. Enjoy it. Cherish your comfortable times. Make the best use of it. Do the important things if you don’t have any urgent ones. Work on things you always wanted to. Most importantly, prepare for the impending bad days. Things may be good right now, but you and I both know they’re never gonna stay the same. The jolt is going to come anyways but it depends upon you how hard it will hit you. Humans perform better in crisis when they see it coming.
P.S. I know this isn’t really what you expect. You expect to learn something new, but I was dreadfully busy the past week, and I just wanted to be there. I just wanted to talk to you. Besides, I didn’t want to break my streak of showing up every week because of getting lazy for just that one time. It’s that ‘one time’ only that brings your reliability down and makes you less consistent. So let’s just call this a cheat week, and instead of totally skipping out and absolutely not presenting anything, I bring you just a conversation on my behalf. Make sure to continue it 😉
P.P.S. There’s a new ‘rate the article’ feature at the end of the blogs. Make sure to check it out and rate all the blogs.
Post completion edit (I wrote this two days after I wrote the post): I think this post was more important for me than anyone else. Yesterday, I was feeling low without any apparent reason and I came to my own rescue. I silently recalled what I wrote about, and felt a bit better even if I didn’t look better. And the next morning I was perfectly fine. So every once in a while you’ll feel down, but know that it’s alright. Knowing that is comfort enough.
Well life indeed is a combination of good and bad times. Bad times are rather more important to make us value the good ones (and to keep our life happening too)
Such comforting words are of course good to hear once in a while, they really provide strength to deal with the problem, whatever it may be.
