If you’re at a point in your life when you feel like you’ve had enough when you’re at your wits’ end, and at the end of your rope, just know that it won’t last forever. It will get better.

And you’ll be just fine.

Remind yourself that this is not the first time and it will certainly not be the last time that you are in a position like this.

We will continue to encounter these moments over and over again throughout the course of our lifetime. We will constantly experience these moments where we feel like we’re at the end of our rope, but as the saying goes, “When you’re at the end of your rope, tie a knot and hold on.”

And when you begin to climb up and out of that pit that you feel you’re in, you’ll surpass every single knot that you’ve ever tied. Those old knots will help you. You’ll use those knots to help you climb up every single time. They’ll serve as a reminder that you hung on and did not give up the last time you were in that position.

There’s a reason why these moments are so important in life.

They teach us that life doesn’t necessarily get easier, but instead, we get stronger. We get stronger from continuing to climb past every struggle we’ve ever faced.

If you’re at the end of your rope, muster up every bit of strength and energy that you can find.

Use whatever you have left in the tank to get you to tie that knot and hold on. Remember that you’ll eventually make it out. You’ll make it to the other side of that rope. And when you’re on the other side, you’ll be able to see just how far you’ve come.

Life is all about perspective. You may not see it when you’re at the bottom, but you will once you’ve finally reached the top. TC mark
