ENCOURAGEMENT FOR TODAY-Hold On!
Today you’re going to feel like “You’ve taken all you can stand and you can’t stands no more!” You’re going to feel like giving up, quitting, calling it off, giving in, telling that person off, stopping, maybe even ending it all. No simple words can just make the pain & struggles go away. It’s so easy to feel like nobody else understands what you are going through or can put themselves in your shoes. All you want is the struggles and the pain to stop. I get that.
I wish I had the quick answer or had the power to make your pain go away but I don’t. For now, try to hold onto this. This overwhelming moment is just a moment. It’s a moment of choice in believing that what you feel right now is absolutely true or it’s not. It is a choice in believing that perhaps your feeling that you’re worthless, can’t do anything right, “what your co-worker said about you is right”, you’ll never get promoted, your book doesn’t matter, your life has little purpose, something is wrong because you are not “DOING” something, etc.” are the truth. It is also a choice about believing that those feelings are just feelings that are hurting and painful right now but they are NOT the truth about who you are. The second choice is much harder to look at but is the one that is the truth. Feel what you feel today, then hold onto the truth. We fall, make mistakes, do foolish things, so what. What we do is NOT who we are…it is simply a wrong belief we have grown to hold onto as fact. Please don’t move or base your worth on what you feel or others words. You are so much more than that. Wait and hold onto the truth of who you truly are as a person.
You can do this!
