I Hope You Trust That The Dark Times Will Pass

I hope you have faith that this difficult season for you will pass soon.

As each day passes by, it’s increasingly easy to lose your motivation. To resign yourself to the throes of hopelessness that engulfs you. To give in to the temptation of staying in your comfort zone. To surrender to negativity and let it consume you. To wave the white flag to your current situation.

But here’s the thing about going through dark times — it won’t last forever. You don’t necessarily have to suffer for a prolonged period. While you can’t instantly switch to a better mood, there are things you can do that can help to alleviate your pain. It may not look like much, but progression consists of taking small steps every day.

Amidst the chaos and whirlwind of activities, it’s okay to seek tranquility, calmness, and peace. It’s okay to take a deep breath and slow down your momentum. It’s okay to set aside time for relaxation, retrospection, and reflection. It’s okay if you are not where you are yet. It’s okay if happiness seems like a faraway daydream. It’s okay if success eludes you. It’s okay if you’re struggling to stay afloat. It’s okay if you’re lost and confused about your next step.

Not all of us have it all figured out. Instead, take comfort that often the darkest times and stormiest days build strong character and a resilient mind. The hardest goodbyes blossom into new beginnings. The lessons of yesterday lead you to a brighter and more hopeful future.

I want you to know that you are worthy of the effort to pick yourself up and try one more time. You are worthy of the belief that you are capable of greater accomplishment and triumphant success. You are worthy of the whole universe conspires to give you all your heart desires.

You owe it to yourself to believe in that tiny voice that you can do whatever you set your mind to it. You owe it to yourself to wake up every single day and try your best in all your endeavors. You owe it to yourself to look at the frightening odds against you squarely and face it courageously. You owe it to yourself to cut off contact with the people who dim your light. You owe it to yourself to conquer all the overwhelming obstacles stacked against you one day at a time. You owe it to yourself to live your true authentic life with no regret.

For you are worth so much more than you realize.

You are worthy of all the goodness, kindness, and beauty that life has to offer. You are worthy of living your most ideal life where your wildest dreams are within your reach. You are worthy of a love so full, overflowing, and certain that your heart is bursting with uncontained happiness. You are worthy of a healthy body and mind that fuel you with unstoppable energy and motivation. You are worthy of adventures, travels, and experiences that stir your heart and satisfy your wanderlust. You are worthy of manifesting your best and most fulfilled life in this present reality.

It’s okay if you are going through dark time now, but please have faith that this will pass. It will take time, but you’re slowly getting there. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
