How To: Deal With Things When You Don't Think You're Strong Enough

I got some bad news. Now I could sink into depression. But anyone who knows me knows that’s not me. I was down about it for a while but after speaking to a few of my friends about it I feel much better and can smile about it now. One little let down in life is not going to rid me of my strength. And it’s a week later, and I can’t even remember what it was that went wrong, so it can’t have borne that much of a weight on my life.

I am so much stronger than that. And so are you. Though you may feel vulnerable when it comes to life’s blips, please understand that everyone has them and even the most composed person you know is fighting a battle that you know nothing about. And that isn’t because you’re a bad friend, it may be that they are ashamed or embarrassed to mention it or think it’s not even worth mentioning. So what’s beating you up? Be it internal or actually physical you don’t deserve it. Let me guess, you self-criticise. We all do it. I’ve just grown so sure of what I’m doing; I’m writing to make YOU worthwhile. Because you are. Sometimes we just need reminding. And there’s nothing wrong with that. I have post-its to remind me of my worthiness, but not everybody has that.

The voices in your head are loud. The more stress there is in your life, the louder they get. Obviously stress elimination is a way to lower their sound. This is not easy for anyone. First, you need to sort out what is stressing you out. Then you need to cut it out of your life. This is not an easy process. Take small steps if you can. Removal in small chunks will make it less of a bombshell. The self-doubt and the belittling voice in your head will quieten the more you believe in yourself and what you do. So, you need to believe in you. I know this is not an easy task. It took me many years. And I still don’t believe my writing’s any good, so I still have issues with believing in myself. But as far as I can, I want to help YOU believe in YOU and writing has proved the best format in which to do that so I’ll keep writing. Until YOU believe in your heart YES YOU ARE WORTH IT. Until YOU just be yourself and know that that is Ok.

You are so much stronger than even I know! Haven’t you gotten through bad points in your life to get to this point? Are you alive and breathing today? Yes, you are. Congratulations. It may not seem like a big deal to you now, but someday you will be glad.

 Hope this helps.
