These past 8 months of my life have been the wildest ride I’ve ever experienced in my life. There were a lot of unexpected twists and turns that really changed my life in an unforeseeable way. I struggled a lot emotionally and mentally. I was really hard on myself because I felt like I should’ve been better or smarter so that I would have avoided all of the L’s I had taken. However, I am human and it’s life after all so I eased up on myself.
The one thing that kept me going throughout that rough patch was wanting to be able to live to tell the tale. I experienced a difficult hardship, it felt like there were only doors closing and none opening, but I knew I would flourish eventually. I wanted to be able to tell the story of how I survived what will probably be the toughest time in my life and that despite everything I still had faith, especially in myself.
It’s hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel when everything feels so shitty. I felt mad at the world, but I stayed hopeful because in life we go through transitions and changes. Transitions and changes can be the ugliest things in the world because it can bring out thoughts and emotions that you could have never fathomed. I learned to give in and go along with it to see where it would take me. I worked jobs I hated. I swallowed my pride. I looked on the brightside as often as I could. I knew eventually that there would be a lot to learn from that particular period of my life. A lot of growth came from it too.
I manifested a lot of things that eventually came to fruition. It took a lot of time, but it was worth each day I patiently waited. Experiencing a breakthrough makes whatever you went through worth it. I can honestly say I’m the happiest I’ve ever been in awhile. I hope that by sharing this I am able to inspire or help someone who is going through something. Rough patches are always temporary. Keep pushing. Live to tell the tale of how you survived the unthinkable
