You must be overwhelmed with life right now, I know. Sometimes, when you think about it, it would be a wonderful thing to be able to just pause everything and make the world stop.

Stop, Universe, you’re making me want to throw up. Stop, Universe, I’m not ready for this. Stop, Universe, this is not what I want.

There will be times when you will feel alone. This, the overwhelming feeling of not knowing what to do because all of this is new, is normal. But just so you know, the whole world feels the same way too. Everyone feels like this is new, they just wouldn’t admit it because, like you, they are scared too. Scared that people will judge them, that people will see them as inferior, as a coward, just downright chicken shit.

You have no choice but to go on with your life. Of course, you have no choice. Right now, it feels like it’s just you against the Universe. It feels like the whole world is plotting against you, the Universe is trying to make you feel unloved and unwelcome. Sometimes, it will feel like the Universe is against you. And one day, you will just want to give up.

Stop, Universe, I can’t do this anymore. Stop, Universe, my heart is going to explode. Stop, Universe, you win.

And this is when you will learn to trust the Universe. You will learn that the Universe will never throw something at you that you cannot handle. Somehow, it knows that you stronger than you think you are, it knows that you can do anything because that’s just how you roll. It knows that you are not the kind of person who just gives up without a fight. The moment you learn how to believe in yourself, the Universe believes in you, too.

Life will never be easy. Happiness cannot be served to you in a platter, just like that. There will be times when you will feel so lost in life and you will wonder what you have done wrong. There will be moments when you will question everything about life and there will be times when you will want to just drop everything and leave. There will come a moment in your life when you’ve never prayed so hard.

The Universe knows you are worth more than just the easy things in life. It knows that you deserve so much more than you could ever imagine. Happiness takes time. Doesn’t it feel so much more exhilarating when you get something you worked so hard for? When you’re in a panic over life, that is when you must learn how to trust the Universe the most, it is when you should trust yourself. This is the time you have to think about everything that you have been through, and find the strength within yourself to go on with your life, even if it means having to learn all of this the hard way.

The Universe has so many amazing plans for you. There will come a time when all your hard work will pay off and you will finally be able to breathe. You will learn that all the heartaches you have been through just made you even stronger. You will learn that the Universe has been writing such a beautiful story for you, and it was just waiting for the perfect time. And when that moment comes, you will learn how to thank the Universe.

Thank you, Universe, for believing in me. Thank you, Universe, for not giving up on me. Thank you, Universe, for everything. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
