As a living being, it is unenviable that our lives will be mixed between good and bad moments. Unfortunately, some of us will have more bad than good. But on the other hand, some will have more good than bad. We just never know which life we will have. At any rate, we have to take the good with the bad and be able to navigate between both. While we would love to dream of the good life there are also the hard things in life that we imagine will break our very soul. Whether it be death in the family, an unforeseen event, or an illness, we never really know how we would deal with it let alone live through said event. I’m here to tell you we are usually stronger than we give ourselves credit for. Part of our reaction is involuntary but there is a part you can control. You can condition yourself to a point. You have to decide to be strong or if you are going to give up. Your initial reaction will probably be involuntary because it’s your honest reaction to whatever just happened. But then it’s your job to take a step back and evaluate how you are going to deal with the situation. It most likely won’t be easy but just know you can get through whatever comes your way. We can’t always help what happens to us but, we can control our reaction to it. You may want to crumble but you can decide to be strong and keep standing. You were given this life because you are strong enough to live it. So know you can get through anything. So believe in yourself and your strength.
