Be Optimistic, For This Too Shall Pass

I know you’re going through a difficult time and I know you’re in pain — pain that leaves you aching in places you never felt before. And I know, during this difficult time, it’s hard to pick up your pieces and put them back together. And I know, during this difficult time, it’s hard to find the light when everything appears to be dark. And I know you’ve heard this before, but I’m reminding you again: there is dawn after every dusk, sunrise after every sunset, and an open sky after every storm.

So be optimistic, for this too shall pass.

You will lose but only so you can learn. You will fall but only so you can feel. You will break but only so you can blossom. You will be helpless but only so you can seek the right help. You will be destroyed but only so you can discover.

So be optimistic, for this too shall pass.

Stand strong and don’t let these cutting winds crash into your bones. With time and healing, you will go from feeling powerless to powerful, and you will look back at every struggle and scar as a reminder of your strength.

So be optimistic, for this too shall pass.

There will be strength behind your struggles, a story behind your scars, and softness in your heart despite your sorrows.

So be optimistic, for this too shall pass.

There is no handbook, guide, or lesson plan on how to deal with your struggles. You are doing your very best. Know that you will fall, you will fail, but you will eventually fly. And don’t you ever, ever beat yourself down for how you’re handling life. You’re dealing with your struggles just the way you were meant to — based on your conditioning, maturity, and circumstances.

Your beautiful transformation is no different than a seed that is planted deep beneath the ground — you too will bloom and blossom after being tried and tested in the rough. So be optimistic, for this too shall pass. TC mark
