Every difficult situation I’ve experienced has ultimately changed me for the better. I’ve grown stronger as a human being and I have been able to advocate for others who are still struggling to be heard. I can’t tell you what a privilege and honor it is for me to use my own pain to help people find strength and hopefully prevent unneeded suffering for many others. These positive rays of light were only able to come through the darkness because I allowed them to, because I was open to them, and because I didn’t dwell on my past or my pain. I simply honored it.
Find something positive about a struggle you’re facing and share it with someone who’s struggling. They’ll know something better is coming to them too. There is always an opportunity to turn a negative situation into a positive one as long as you are open to the possibility. (Not my words.)
The fact that you’re struggling doesn’t make you a burden. It doesn’t make you unloveable or undesirable or undeserving of care. It doesn’t make you too much or too sensitive or too needy. It makes you human. Everyone struggles. Everyone has a difficult time coping, and at times, we all fall apart. During these times, we aren’t always easy to be around and that’s okay. No one is easy to be around one hundred percent of the time. Yes, you may sometimes be unpleasant or difficult. And yes, you may sometimes do or say things that make the people around you feel helpless or sad. But those things aren’t all of who you are and they certainly don’t discount your worth as a human being.
The truth is that you can be struggling and still be loved. You can be difficult and still be cared for. You can be less than perfect, and still be deserving of compassion and kindness. Be you. (Not my words.)
This is for the ones who are struggling right now. This is for the ones who have been having a rough day or week or even year. The ones who feel like this storm will never end. Keep fighting for you. Not for friends, not for your family, but for you. Keep fighting because deep down you hold a tiny voice that knows you were meant for far more than this sadness and pain you are feeling. Keep fighting because the person you will be on the other side of all this is cheering for you so much. Keep fighting because you will get there. And it will be worth it.
Understand that your competition isn’t other people. Your competition is your procrastination. Your ego. The unhealthy food you’re consuming. The knowledge you neglect. The negative behaviour you’re nurturing. And your lack of creativity. Compete against that. You deserve a better you. (Not my words).
Suddenly social media has created so many experts who brag about their success stories. Most of these only talk about their success. Half of these dumbfucks have little to nothing success in their field, rest half are just scammers.
Genuine people who made it big will never sell their recipe to success. Because it’s personal. My journey with my relationships, friendships, religion, finance & career, all are personal to me. I may give tips to my son one day, but why will i tell some random person to follow my steps & make it happen, if i already made it so far walking on my own!!? Nobody helped me become what i wanted to be. The journey wasn’t smooth sailing. And i also know nobody will put similar effort to be where i am.
Ask Elon Musk how he got into Tesla without founding it & how it’s the world’s highest valued automobile manufacturing company in stock market while making only 0.13% of cars in this world!!? Will he ever tell you in a while how that happened? It’s consistent rigorous efforts of time & discipline, that’s paying off right now.
Stop selling success stories. Now we live in a world where people first need to know what they shouldn’t do. I want more people to talk about setbacks. Failures & struggles are fun too. I don’t know why people avoid that part! If you can’t enjoy the struggle, you don’t deserve the SUCCESS.
Being empathetic has some side effects as well. If you’re a genuine empath, others emotions can flip yours like switch. Have you ever had a day that was going great until it wasn’t because it was ruined by someone else’s bad day!? Imagine a day when you accomplished a lot of goodness, got positive feedback, focused on self care & feeling overall optimistic and confident. Then someone comes home, or you get a call or you meet up with a friend and their day isn’t going so well.
If you’re an empath, your own emotions immediately shift toward whatever they’re feeling, which can be disappointment, anger, worried or whatever. It’s like you lived through their day and not your own. This can make it difficult to hold space for that person as you attempt to cope with the same challenging emotions. People who can’t keep up with own emotional strides always bring negative impact to others. Learn to own yourself with time.
If you read my previous post on “Dumb” & commented something that I didn’t approve, it’s because I have two lines to add below it. Saying it here.
There are two kinds of “Dumb people”; one who’s wrong but struggles to accept it, next one who’s wrong and proud of it. The good part is; both are hell lot of fun. Whenever you think a dumb person is talking crap, just enjoy that beautiful conversation coming from another peanut brain. We all need some dose of nonsensical laughter once in a while, such people are always a help when you are going through a horrible day. And I always say this in my posts “Life is fun, let it be”.
People really get confused when they see these two words together “POWER COUPLE”.
It simply means, you see TRUTH, TRUST & CONFIDENCE in your partner’s eyes. Each time you are face to face, you scream at your partner without opening mouth “You are going nowhere this lifetime. Your address is my arms. I own you.” There is no longer a day where communication will struggle. There is no chance for misunderstandings. Each words spoken are TRUTH or a PROMISE. That’s when you are sure about your forever next.
While typing this I can add one thing; I don’t know where i stand in terms of a romantic relationship or LOVE kinda bullshit. I was/am never ready to enter a relationship. Did that mistake just once, failed. Not ready to allow anyone close without a huge time tested solid foundation.
Now I assure, I see TRUTH in someone. Request is; please never lose it. My heart is healed & I am back on track towards usual flamboyance. Thanks for succesfully keeping my both heads active. Yes, I am trying to make you weak. And shhhhhhhhh, I know how to make twins.😂😘
