Well if you're reading this then you obviously feel like you're just at your wits end.
It seems like every time you get your footing, the rug is ripped out from under you all over again.
Just as you start to move on, you somehow end up back at square one.
One step forward, two steps back.
Maybe it's that awful ex who just can't stay away, or maybe it's the best friend who's so wrapped up in their own problems that they can't be there for you.
Maybe it's family problems or trouble at work or school. Maybe you're just struggling and feeling down on your luck.
But I promise you that it does get better.
Life is not easy, but you're going to be okay.
I was walking in your shoes not too long ago, thinking that life was never going to stop knocking me down.
I thought I was never going to get out of the rut I was stuck in, that I was never going to feel better.
But I was wrong, and so are you.
Sometimes when it rains it pours, but the sun always shines again. And so will you.
One day you're going to look back on everything that's been holding you down and realize that it was actually pushing you forward.
If you aren't challenged, if nothing pushes you out of your comfort zone, how are you ever going to grow?
One day you're going to take all of this stress and drama and hardship and turn it into success.
In the meantime, be kind to yourself and just remember that there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
You're going to do incredible things that you can't even fathom yet. Just have faith.
