I often find carrying on can be hard and the older I get the more responsibilities I have and it is hard. Life can be pretty great but we often focus on the hardships and the things that take our time rather than the rainbow in the sky. It can be so easy to focus on the thunder clouds and things that can go wrong that we often get down and life can be difficult. It can affect our self esteem and it can make us feel bad about anything and everything. We need to know that the thunder clouds will not be with us forever and with like every storm they do get better and we have to just sit it out. Life is full of ups and downs and we need to know that through all the things we go through we will have enough strength for each thing. We have enough strength to get through each day and to do the things that we have to do from getting up in the morning to putting the kids down to bed. Everything little thing takes time and takes strength.
We think that we have to keep on going and there is no light at the end of the tunnel but there is and life will get better. We are told so many negative thoughts, we are told we are not good enough, we are told there is no light at the end of the tunnel, we are told that we are a burden to our family and friends, we are told that we just need to give up and life is not worth living. It is something that we believe and it wrecks our self-esteem and the way that we think about ourselves. We believe the things that society tells us, we believe what those people who hate us say, we believe all the negative things about ourselves. It will harm us and it will be hard to keep on going. With help we can carry on and with help we will get to the end of the journey. We will become proud of the things we have achieved and we will grow to become what we want to be. Just look back on the 24 hours and see how well you have done, the things that you didn’t think you would be able to do but you did and you should be proud.
When we are down and when struggle to be worthwhile we should know that we have the people around us who support us, we have our family who will be there when no one else is, we have friends who will be there to laugh with, we have spouses to cry with us, we have so many people that can help us to feel worthwhile and so many people that we area blessing too. It will take a long time to realise it and it will take a long time to know that we are worth something. We always think that we are not able to do the things that we are able to do but we can, we think we are not able to speak the words that we are able to say but we are able to have clear speech. We have rough years but if we ask for help then we are able to do it and we are able to keep on going. The days will be rough but we should know the people that we can go to, to be able to help us and to keep us going.
We have bumps in our life and days will be tough but with help we will be able to carry on. I have had mental health problems over the last two years and it has been hard, I didn’t know how to get through some days, I didn’t know how to keep on going but I did and I am thankful I did. I was able to turn to the people who could support me, I was able to talk to those people who really cared and with the help of the community around me I was able to carry on. I was able to keep on going, I was able to build up my self esteem, I was able to cut down on my pills, I was able to be happy with who I am, I am now pleased with who I have become, I am pleased with how my life has turned around, I am so thankful for those people that have stuck by me when no one else has been there. It has been tough and there are some days that are still hard but with help I am able to carry on.
I am so thankful for all those people that have stuck by me, I am so blessed to have a community around me, I am so pleased that people are able to support me in my journey and the things that I am going through. However, people will not always be with me and they will not be there when I need them. It has and will be hard when people are not around to talk to but I know that God will be there and God will protect me and give me the strength that I need. I know that with everything I go through God will help me and God will give me the strength to keep on going.
