Struggle/Strength

One of the most important lessons life teaches us all is that your struggles develop your strengths. It is the only way to go about it, actually.
Strengths develop over time, they develop by you overcoming obstacles and solving problems.

Which begs the question: why do people run away from their problems? Why not face them? Why deny they exist? Why put the blame on other people?

Well, for once: it can be a frustrating process.

I remember when I first started writing. Fourteen years old, I thought I was phenomenal. Most folks who read my stuff said I was either a retard or fourteen years old. I was both. Kinda.

The truth of the matter is that I had to overcome this obstacle: what people thought of my writing.

And I had to keep writing…

And I had to do the work when I didn’t feel like it, or it felt as if the story wasn’t going anywhere. I wrote during the bad days, when I thought that at best I’ll be mediocre, and at worst, I’ll be complete failure.

We are works in progress.

I cannot stress this enough.

Write it down. Put it against a wall. On your fridge.

You are a verb, not a noun.

You can overcome struggles and become stronger than you used to be.

Anything is survivable, as long as your heart beats…

That is the right mindset to have when going through life.

Will it be easy?

No.

Will it be worth it?

Like few other things in life.

For there is no greater satisfaction than being able to do what previously was impossible.
