No matter how much we try to avoid negative events, they always seem to find us. When something bad happens we often have the tendency to soak in our own misery and think we don’t have what it takes to keep going.
These are moments when everyone around us looks so happy, everything seems so easy for them, and here we are, doing our best while life kicks us again and again.
In trying to cope with whatever is happening to us, our biggest mistake is thinking that someday it’ll be over and everything will just fall into our laps. The truth is things never get easier, we just find better ways in overcoming obstacles and learn to not dwell on them as much. So the key to keep going is in our pockets.
It’s hardships that make us stronger and help us grow. It might sound crazy, but the best approach would be to be thankful for every difficulty because it gives you a chance to prove yourself and at the end of the day to be your own hero.
