Keep Your Head High When The Earth Feels Like It’s Crumbling Beneath Your Feet


I know right now it feels like everything is going wrong, like the world is completely against you and there’s nothing you can do to change it. You feel like there’s a volcano erupting right in front of you and you can’t out run the lava so you just keep getting burned over and over again.

This time is hard and it’s challenging you, but let it challenge you for the best.

It doesn’t seem fair and it feels like everything that could go wrong is going wrong, but I assure you that things will get better. You might not believe it because you can’t see that far in the future, but things will get better.

Things will always get better and things will always work out in one way or another.

All you can do when the earth seems like it’s against you is keep moving forward, do what you can to fix your situation and maintain a positive outlook. Keep smiling and keep looking for the lessons to learn because in every heart ache there is a lesson that will guide you on a better path in the future.

You are so bright and you are so strong, you are capable of so much. Don’t let these moments of weakness steal away who you are. It’s a tough time, but things will get better and you will be okay all you have to do is believe in yourself.

You need to be there for yourself most importantly because if you’re not there when the earth is shattering beneath your feet then no one is going to be there. When you are crying on the floor in the middle of the night you need to be there for yourself, you need to pick yourself up and keep going. You need to be your number one support system. You need to be your own best friend.

I’m not saying you shouldn’t rely on others because you should, but you should still put yourself first and make yourself your own number one priority.

Things feel like they’re hard now, you feel like you just want to give up and you can’t find the strength inside you because maybe you don’t have the best relationship with yourself, but I believe in you. I believe you can do it and I know this is just a bump in the road.

This is part of the ride; it isn’t the final destination, you still have so many more good things ahead of you.

You have the world at your fingertips and you can do what you wish with that opportunity.

Make the most of it, don’t let life control you, but instead control your life. Be the one who is making the shots and writing the chapters of your own book. Don’t sit back and let someone else take control. Do what makes you happy and don’t ever give up on yourself when everything feels wrong because I assure you soon everything will also feel right.

Life is all about balance. Where there is good there is also bad, you just have to accept the low lows sometimes in order to celebrate the high highs.

Life can’t be good all the time, it’s just not realistic. But taking the good with the bad and finding balance between the two – that is your average everyday life. That’s the life you should embrace because you only get one shot and it will be a hell of a lot more enjoyable if you look at it with a glass half full mentality than a glass half empty mindset.

Keep your head held high when everything feels like it’s going wrong because things will get better. You are the only one who can change your attitude and that attitude can go a long way to help everything feel right again. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
