“The fact that you have a difficult time doing things that other people can complete with ease doesn’t make you inadequate. It doesn't make you incapable or weak. And it doesn't make you a failure. It makes you human. The truth is that everyone struggles with something. No matter how happy or well-adjusted a person may seem, we all have fears that hold us back. Despite how put together someone may seem on the outside, no one is perfect, and that's okay. Whether you have a difficult time being social, talking on the phone, becoming independent, using your voice, entering a relationship, connecting with others, individuating from your family, or getting out of bed each morning to face the world -- know that it's okay. And know that despite your struggle, you are capable, you are talented, you are important, and you are enough. ”—Daniell Koepke
“It is okay to be at a place of struggle. Struggle is just another word for growth. Even the most evolved beings find themselves in a place of struggle now and then. In fact, struggle is a sure sign to them that they are expanding; it is their indication of real and important progress. The only one who doesn’t struggle is the one who doesn’t grow. So if you are struggling right now, see it as a terrific sign — celebrate your struggle.”—Neale Donald Walsch
“There is nothing shameful about needing help to function. Whether it’s help in the form of medication, therapy, support groups, mental health hotlines, or the inbox of a friend— it's okay to need a crutch to lean on. It doesn’t make you any less capable or competent. It doesn’t make you weak. And it doesn’t make you a failure. It makes you human. It's makes you a person who is wounded and searching for a way to heal. It makes you someone with the courage to acknowledge that they have needs and the strength to get those needs met. And although it may be true that not everyone needs these things to cope, it's a lie to think that everyone else can function without support. No one gets through life without some form of help. No one is impervious to the struggle and strain and heartbreak that come with taking up space. We all have a difficult time coping, and at some point, we all need help. You are not an exception. You're important and you matter. Your life matters. And if asking for help is going to make things more manageable, if it's going to ease your pain and help you fight the darkness you carry, then you have every right and reason to get support. Always.”—Daniell Koepke
“We sometimes face so much in our lives, that we feel the need to detach from everyone and everything that's close to us. If you ask me, I say it's good for us. With the pressures of the world constantly building up onto our shoulders, I think taking a mental, and sometimes physical, break from it all could be beneficial. When you're out there facing the world, don't forget that you're human and have every right to take care of yourself and to make sure that you're happy with yourself. Please, when it feels like you're facing too much in life, take a break, smile, and go out there and live. What's meant to be a part of your life will be, regardless of whether you take breaks or not; you won't miss out. Take care of you today, so you can do more tomorrow.”—Nadir Keval
“I could tell right away that you were once a people pleaser. The remnants of it still remain, and probably always will to some extent. What's changed is not that you don't like to please people. What's changed is that you've recognized the value of your pleasing people, causing you to put a price on it. Now, it must be earned, and will not be handed out or even made available to just anybody. There are some that will always hold your heart and for whom you will always be willing to do anything to please. but you will also put barriers up against them, not because you don't trust them, but because you are afraid of one day being trampled by those closest to you, and that is your greatest fear. It is your greatest fear of all because you recognize how real that possibility truly is, perhaps due to your own experience or the experiences of those close to you. Regardless, this armour you have built as an external extension of you is good for you because now, a person must be willing to take arms with your armour to even stand a chance at getting a place in your life.”—Nadir Keval
“Often, we get pulled in to the thrills of life and forget our responsibilities. We get so intrigued with "having fun" that we forget to be thankful and grateful to God for giving us all that we have, for protecting us from the hardships faced by others around the world. Take a minute while you're out there enjoying life today, and remember those struggling, regardless of how big or small their struggle. We all face ups and downs in life, and God never burdens us beyond our scope, but that doesn't mean we aren't challenged. Rather, it means that we are given opportunities to grow and become better, to get closer to God through worship, remembrance, and seeking His Help, and to find internal peace in our personal journeys so we can have the strength and determination to spread peace to every soul we touch.”—Nadir Keval
Whenever I’m going through a hardship in life I do my best to try and view it as a blessing in disguise because regardless of what it is that I’m going through it will either make me stronger or make me realize that there is something I need to change. So either way it will end up helping you only if you don’t allow it to break you first. Always keep your head up!
