Growth happens not in spite of pain but because of it. We must go through pain to come out stronger. The things that caused us this pain before have less and less effective in the new stronger version of ourselves we could become.
If you find yourself going through a tough time and you are feeling down or depressed about it. Know that everyone goes through this. Some spend a very short period of time and others spend a very long period of time in this state. Think of this state of mind like the winter, as it comes it will also go. From cold and dark to spring warm and bright. We can’t control the world around us but we can control how we start to see the world.
Find people that will listen to how you feel and give you encouragement, especially if they too have been through the same or similar situation.
If you were in the woods lost for the first time, wouldn’t you want a guide that has been through there before and made it out? Makes sense, huh.
“A smile simply does not mean the person is happy. They can be the most upset, angry, and depressed person you have ever seen on the inside. Don’t ignore someone because they are smiling. They might still need you.”
