I’m sure I’m not the only one who sometimes finds it hard to find hope in situations. It can be easy to feel like everything is helpless.
But I’m here to tell you that things do get better. Or even if they don’t completely get better, then at least they become more bearable.
This isn’t meant to be one of those posts of “Oh, life will get better if you really believe!” No. Sometimes it means putting in lots of hard work.
When you’re going through challenges, it can be hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel. You feel as if the tunnel goes on forever, and there’s no end. But I promise you there is an end. You just keep taking steps, no matter how scared you are. It’s not always easy, and it definitely might not feel like it’s worth it. But I promise you it is. I promise you I’ve been there. I still go through challenges. I’m in the trenches.
I don’t say these things because I’m better than anyone else. I’m not. But you’re not alone in what you face. Even when the darkness seems enveloping and overwhelming, you’re not alone. It may mean that you have to reach out and find your support system. Or your support system may reach out to you if they know you’re struggling. But either way, nobody is completely alone. If anything else, I’m here. You can always reach out to me. I’ll grab your hand, even in the darkness, and stay by your side.
It’s not always important that you see the light at the end of the tunnel. But what is important is that you keep going. I don’t car how slow your pace. Life isn’t a race. Everyone hits things differently. But what does matter is that you continue moving. You might stumble or fall, but you got to get up and brush the dirt off.
Often, when you’re in the midst of the tunnel of a challenge, the only way out is through. There’s no shortcut, no emergency hatch that you can climb through. You just gotta keep moving forward. I promise you the view is worth it. And when you come out of the tunnel, you’ll be stronger, wiser, and maybe a little more ready for the next one to come your way.
