We all go through highs and lows in our life. Sometimes it takes the lows for us to decide it is time to focus on some self improvement. You might be feeling rejected, down, sad, even a little depressed. Remember this when life is in turmoil, what you need to do is smile and not get caught up in all the negativity. You can use these tough times as a time to learn. Turmoil just isn’t a reason for you to stop living.
It is inevitable. You are going to face heartaches and problems throughout your life. These too shall pass. There are some things you can do so that you can come out the other side unscathed. You might be going through tough times right now, but it isn’t going to last forever. Things will change, they will get better – keep telling yourself this. No matter what the problem, what turmoil you are facing, this too shall pass. At some point, you will look back and recognise the lesson that you were meant to learn.
In a few years, what’s going on will be nothing but a memory. It won’t matter. You might even look back and laugh or you might be incredibly thankful for what looked like a terrible ordeal at the time, because what came out of it was good and it made you stronger. No matter what is going on in your life, keep in mind that much of what is going on right now will make up just a small percentage of your life. So, instead of letting it pull you into the darkness, think of what you can do to stay focused and strong. What can you do today, in your life that will make positive changes.
Life has plenty of beautiful moments but there is also pain as we grow and it is that pain that will actually make you stronger. You will endure the pain, because you understand that at the end of the day it will be worth it. You will learn how to overcome the pain ñ that will be part of your self improvement plan. From the pain, you will morph into a beautiful human being.
What you do need to remember is that the negativity of others isn’t your problem. You can be sure that over time there are going to be many people who let you down. During your difficult times, you will know who your real friends are. What you won’t need is the negativity of others who leave you feeling worse than you already do. You want to have friends who lift you up, lift your spirits, even when your world seems to be collapsing.
Finally, remember, life is full of highs and lows. You can’t have one without the other. Your world is ever changing and your self improvement can happen during both highs and lows.
One of the best phrases to remember when you are going through tough times that helped me is to say to yourself, “This too shall pass”. Good luck.
