"When things go wrong, you’ll find they usually go on getting worse for some time; but when things once start going right they often go on getting better and better." -C.S. Lewis
I think sometimes, conflict and heartache and problems..they only make us stronger. In the moment we want to break down, cry or curse at the world. Usually after you do it, you’ll sit there wondering why you were so mad in the first place. Things happen, bad and good…and for the most part when something bad happens, something that tears down our walls we’ve spent so long building, the things that make us lose hope and meaning…those are the important moments.
These moments will be monumental. They will only make you stronger, more compassionate and empathetic. They will give you understanding and more appreciation for all the times when things were good. Sometimes, realizing you don’t have all the answers isn’t the worst thing, from there you can start asking the right questions.
"I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best."
Being able to take a step back from what you’re doing and ask yourself what you were doing wrong can help you excel into change. To change your life for the greater, the stronger…the happier. Maybe the bad times come, and they break us down, but from there we get to re build. Re build our thoughts, our emotions, our appreciations, relationships, our worlds. Even though sometimes we take a step forward, only to move two steps back...there will be a reason for it. Maybe you aren't ready, maybe you are meant for something better, greater, something that suits your life and who you are meant to be.
Of all the different roads you could have followed, the different decisions you have made in the past...have all defined who you are today. Things happen for a reason. Those reasons are hard to understand, and even at times they are hard to accept, but there is always a reason.
I think sometimes, it’s when you are at your weakest that you are the most creative. The possibilities that lay before you may seem far away, but they are endless. You are not alone, nor will you ever be. To be beaten down, experience loss and heartache, to feel as though you've hit rock bottom...stop, there is hope. Things will get better and from here, you will only be stronger, wiser and better.
