We can’t always stand strong. We will stumble, we will fall; we will feel like giving up… even the strongest people have their doubts and their down-times.
So, don’t beat yourself up. This is normal.
Because we are all human.
Just, know that:
There will be times when you feel like you don’t know what you are doing. There will be times when you feel completely lost. It’s okay.
Take a deep breath.
At times, you will feel like you are going up against the whole world. It will feel like, perhaps, you are taking on more than you can handle. Don’t panic.
Take a step back.
Sometimes you will lose all faith – in yourself, in others… You will feel stupid; maybe you will feel like the biggest idiot of them all. Cheer up! You are not the only one!
You will meet people who seem to be doing better than you. You will feel weak, you will feel inadequate. But, you know what? Even those people feel weak at times.
We all have our moments.
A day might come when you will feel completely hopeless, and you will despair. You will feel helpless, or alone. You will lose sight of your goals or ambitions. You will think “Well… what’s the point?”…
And you will want to give up.
But, really, it’s okay. You are doing fine.
It’s not because you are weak, or inadequate. It’s not because you cannot do it. It’s not because you are not good enough. It’s not because you are stupid.
It’s because you are human… and it’s normal to feel that way.
So, don’t forget:
If you fall today, you will get up tomorrow. If you can’t find the strength in you today, you can find it and carry on tomorrow. Take a deep breath and go easy on yourself. It’s not the end.
Now, forgive yourself for wanting to give up. Forgive yourself for feeling weak and tired. Forgive yourself for not knowing what to do… because, really, it is okay.
You are doing just fine.
