“ Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It is a very mean and nasty place and it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life.” — Rocky
You’ve been beat down. Life isn’t playing nice. You’ve been a punching bag. Dreams are turned to dust. Hopes drain down your face as tears. Nobody is promised an easy ride. It sucks when the wheel of misfortune finds you.
Does that mean you should lay down and take the beating? No. You stand up. Look at your scars as a reminder that you’ve lived through hardship before. This is only a new mask on familiar pain.
Allow this experience to fuel your strength. Persevere. You’re allowed to cry. You’re allowed to scream at the ground and sky. Shake your fist at the heavens, and tell them, “Not today!” Hardships are doorways to knowledge. Step boldly into the forge and be shaped by the anvil.
You don’t get to quit. You’re not allowed to be bitter.
