“Right now you might be in a situation that you think you won’t survive but six months ago you were in a situation didn’t think you’d survive and the point is you will always surprise yourself and you will always make it through.”
This is a statement that rings so so true to me. A few years ago, it was my sophomore or junior year of high school, I was having a rough time in my life. One particular “situation” that always comes to mind is a class, well more a teacher, I had in high school. It started my sophomore year, and it was my English class. I hated (I know hate is a strong word but that’s the only way I could describe it at the time) this teacher, as did all of my classmates who had that class as well. Although she was good at her job and taught us a lot she was very demanding of us, she was very intimidating, and she was scary! I absolutely hated her class, I was a nervous wreck the entire day before her class, and I remember multiple times feeling sick to my stomach, almost in tears. I was ecstatic when the school year was over and I didn’t have to deal with this teacher anymore. Until I received my junior year schedule during summer cheer camp on day and saw the same teacher’s name for a new class being offered at my school. I felt my heart fall out of my butt in that moment.
And to some people my situation may seem like nothing, I even feel silly writing about it now, but back then to a 14/15 year old, it was the end of the world.
Anyway, the way I would get through every class and the way I’ve gotten through anything I didn’t want to do or anything that made me nervous and anxious was by thinking about how I will feel when it’s over. I kept my eye on the finish line. I feel like I’m not explaining it very well and my words feel a little jumbled.
The point is, whatever it is you’re going though, whether it’s big or small, you will get through it. And when you DO get through it and you’re looking back, you will be so happy. You will feel so proud. You will survive.
So even though it may feel like the worst situation in the world, it will not last forever. Keep a positive mind, have faith and believe in yourself, and continue pushing forward.
“Just remember, even your worst day only has 24 hours.”
“So far your survival rate is 100%, and that’s pretty damn good.”
“This too shall pass. It may pass like a kidney stone, but it will pass.”
