“I don’t know how I’m going to get through this.”
We’ve all felt this way at one point or another. I’m sure that you’ve also thought this before.
There are some moments that feel impossible to get through. There are some moments that make you feel broken. There are some moments that make you feel like nothing you do will ever be able to make everything okay again. There are some moments that will make you feel like you can’t be fixed.
You feel like everything is crumbling. You feel like nothing is going right. You start to feel like no one understands you. Perhaps you don’t have anyone to talk to. Perhaps you don’t want to talk to anyone about your problems. Perhaps it will feel like you only have yourself.
However long it lasts, even if it is one hour, it could feel like a lifetime. Nights like these can feel extremely long, especially if you can’t seem to fall asleep. It is possible for your mind to become your worst enemy. You can start to feel weak and alone.
But, you’re not alone.
I want you to remember the strength that is in your soul. You are stronger than you think. You are stronger than you allow yourself to believe. You can get through anything that is thrown your way. And not only will you get through it, but you will also learn from it. You will come out of any situation even stronger than you were previously if you pay attention to the lessons. You will even learn certain things about yourself that you never knew were possible. You can take the pain that you felt and turn it into fuel. Then, you can turn that fuel into love. After you heal, you will understand why you had to go through what you did. You will get clarity. You will get a greater understanding.
Through it all, I want you to remember that you’re not alone. Going through hard times can be difficult because there will be moments that you will feel like no one else is going through what you are going through. However, I want you to know that there is someone out there who is going through the same exact thing that you are going through.
Yes, humans are different. Yes, they are unique. Therefore, no one is exactly the same. However, the beauty of emotions is that everyone feels them. Everyone feels pain and everyone feels hurt at one point or another. There can be someone across the world who is going through the same thing that you are. And, even though you might not know them, it is comforting to know that someone else is dealing with what you are dealing with.
You are not alone. And, if ever you feel alone, I hope that you remember this: You will get through it. Keep holding on.
