Trust Yourself—You Were Made To Live This Life

Trust yourself. It’s a simple statement that may seem impossible. We question ourselves; we question our beings. We question why we’re here and what we’re supposed to do. We may wonder if we’re really supposed to be here. Sometimes I wonder why I’m here, what my purpose is, and what am I doing. Is there a reason for me to be here? I’ll question everything I do, every move I make, every call, text, and word, every breath I take. I wonder if I’m doing things “right.”

What is the “right” way to do things? I’m doing the best I know how, but is that good enough? Yes. Yes is a complete sentence. Yes. I’m good enough. I’m meant to be here. The butterfly effect tells us that everything we do can cause a drastic change in the future. It can make incredible things happen. Me being here makes a difference.

Sometimes it may not be an obvious thing. You may make a huge difference in the life of someone else by flashing them a smile. That could be what they needed to make their day different. That could be exactly what someone needed to make their life different. It could change what their next action is. And it’s because of you—you made something a little bit better.

When going through life, sometimes it may feel like just going through the motions. That’s enough. Go through the motions. Get through the day. You can do it. Even if it feels like the worst day of your life, keep pushing. You’re something special. There isn’t anyone like you in the world, and you need to know that.

Trust your judgment, trust what you believe, trust that you can accomplish your dreams. We’re our own worst enemies, but we can also be our own best friends. It’s difficult—life isn’t easy. Life is never going to be easy. Life isn’t meant to be easy, but that doesn’t mean that it’s not beautiful. Not being easy doesn’t mean that it’s not meaningful.

You’ve survived every bad day you’ve had so far. I’ve overcome every obstacle I’ve met. There are going to be more obstacles. There are going to be more bad days. There’s going to be more to life than what’s happening right now.

Trust yourself. Think about it some more. What’s holding you back from accomplishing your deepest dreams? What’s holding you back from doing something you’ve always wanted to do? Why are you letting it hold you back? A lot of the time, the answer may be “money.” Money is an obstacle, there’s no doubt about that. The real answer is your doubt. You’re holding yourself back. Why? You don’t believe in yourself.

Belief is one of the strongest things in the world. Belief in yourself is something that you can do. You can get through it. Believe that you can manage what you’re facing. There’s stress, and there’s emotion, but there’s also power. You hold your own power. You were made to be here. There’s a reason that you’re still in this world, in this life. There’s a reason you’re here, and you’re going to keep going.

You are important. You’re the only you there is. There will never, ever be another you. You as a person are irreplaceable. It’s beautiful, and you can keep going. In blatant terms, you got this. Keep going, because you were made to be here. You belong in this life, and no one is ever going to be able to take that away from you. You belong. You were made to be here. You are a beautiful, incredible being, and you are the only one that can fulfill your destiny.

You never know what you mean to someone else. You never know the impact you’ve had on their life. Trust yourself and know that you are you, and do your best. Push yourself to be the best version of you that you can be. It’s not an easy path, but you CAN do it. Look forward—the future is bright, and you are your own shining star. TC mark
