Life tests us.
There are times when we are filled with anxiety, hopelessness, fear, and all of the things that people don’t like to open up about because it’s not a happy subject and as sad as it is, you feel that people don’t want to know sometimes.
The truth is, is that all of those things are part of us as humans; as well as happiness, joy and faith. It’s easy to say, “Oh, just look on the bright side and life will change” and this, to a certain extent can be true- life is better when you have a happy mind set; but it’s not so easy to snap into a good frame of mind. That takes work, commitment to yourself and going easy on yourself also.
You can have a happy mind and a happy life by slowly changing your thought processes, learning to find your own way of dealing with sadness and being ok with yourself on the days that you feel less than able to do so. You’ll get less of those days and you’ll gradually find that you start to feel happier inside, instead of having to act happy on the outside.
We go through these stormy parts of our lives to clear out the unnecessary and unwanted clutter in our minds so that we can see clearly at the other side. Any situation that we find ourselves in which creates turmoil in our existence will always end with smooth, calm waters and we would’ve learned a lot more about ourselves by the process.
Allow yourself to be free, to be happy and don’t be too hard on yourself when you’re not. You are doing the best you can and you’re doing well. So keep up the good work! x
