A Love Letter to Anyone Who’s Struggling Today
Hey struggling soul.
I want to tell you a secret.
You are so much stronger than you think you are. Do you remember the
last day that you felt this way? When you felt like you couldn’t take
this anymore, or that you were just so tired of living life like this?
You made it through that day. And there’s proof that you can make it
through this day too.
Whether you’re fighting your
body, or your mind… or maybe both, you woke up this morning. Though
you may not have a choice and these circumstances have chosen you, you
are facing them head on. And you might feel like they’re overwhelming
you, or like you’re not strong enough to handle them. But you will look
back on days like this and be so proud of the way you surprised
yourself. Just like you’ve surprised yourself before. Again and again.
not fair that that life has dealt you this deal. It’s not. There’s
nothing that makes it okay. But I hope you know you deserve to be proud.
Because you go through things that other people couldn’t handle. You
don’t even realize all the little achievements you’ve attained. Every
single day, from getting up, to forcing yourself to bathe or shower, to
pushing through the pain, and fighting for your life.
though some days you might feel like you’re losing, the mere fact that
you are pushing through is a little win. You are braver than you think.
More of a fighter than you think. More fearless than you think. And no
one knows. It’s a pretty silent battle. No one knows the little things
you overcome in one day. 24 hours. Maybe today you felt pain all over
your body. But you still made it through. Maybe today your mind was a
mess. But you still made it through. Maybe today you were just tired.
Exhausted. You felt like you had the life sucked out of you. But still,
here you are, another day that YOU won over what’s trying to take over.
don’t underestimate yourself. It might feel like the score is 0 for
you, and 1 for life, but you are so much more than you think you are.
You have power over the pain the world has caused you. And you deserve
every single ounce of that power, because you fought for it. And you
continue to fight for it every single day.
So in case no one has told you lately…. I’m proud of you.
