The Worst Days Of Your Life Will Become Your Greatest Lessons

There will be days when it will be so hard for you to just get up from the bathroom floor after weeping on it for a whole complete hour.

There will be days when getting out of bed is going to be your greatest achievement.

There will be days when you will be in so much pain that even just taking one single breath is going to hurt and feel like such a hard thing to do.

There will be days when you might lose control over yourself and not be able to calm yourself down or stop the tears dripping from your eyes.

There will be days when you will experience unbearable hurt that you’ll think that you won’t survive beyond that moment.

There will be days when you might resent or hate yourself that will leave you wondering whether you could ever love yourself again or look at yourself the same way in the mirror.

There will be days when you will be so disappointed that you will question having expectations or trust in people again.

There will be days when you will feel stuck in a dark train of thoughts that you will feel like you can’t get yourself out of.

There will be days when you will feel your weakest and most vulnerable state of mind, that will make you wonder whether you will ever feel strong again.

There will be days when your worst fears will come true and you will have to live through them.

I hope while living one of these days or one of these moments that you can remind yourself that no matter how much you think that you can’t get through this or that this won’t pass, that it always does. It always passes, and you can always get through this, no matter how hard it feels at the moment. And you won’t just get through these moments, you will get out of all of them way stronger.  

These moments are not here to break you or leave you shattered; these moments are here to make you even a better version of yourself and a stronger one.

One day you will be thankful for these moments, even if they were the worst moments in your life. One day you will stand there and know that no matter what life throws at you, you have been through so much before and survived, even if you thought you wouldn’t.

Getting through these days will make you realize how strong you are, even if you never knew that you were that strong or that you had this strength in you before to face and get through all that. These days will teach you that you are always stronger than you think. 

These days are your greatest lessons in life. We go through them and we hit rock bottom and we feel like this is it, then we surprise ourselves by rising up again and conquering. This is life’s way of teaching us and breaking us only to fix us up again and recreate stronger versions of us. It might be a harsh way to learn and grow, but this is life. I hope you become aware of this and that whenever you have one of these days, you look forward to what you will learn and the person that you will become once this is over.
