Today, we have another inspirational post from contributor, Stephanie Carfrae. She is a Creative Writing Graduate; you can find her own blog at www.stephcarfrae.blogspot.co.uk and I think you will be inspired by Stephanie's first video on YouTube
Doesn’t it just feel like all your problems are weighing you down?
Well the good news is this is just temporary. Although it feels like it will go on forever, I assure you it won’t.
In months, years, a decade you’ll be looking back and asking yourself why did you think that was so hard? Why did you let that stop you? And it’ll either be because things have toppled on top of that, and you have learnt to deal with it or all the issues of those days have disappeared.
And you’ll be glad you’ve been through it. Either because it’s taught you how to deal with problems for the future when they appear, or you’ll be so thankful that that was then and this is now. You will be better equipped to fight off a similar issue, there’s no way of stopping them coming though. It’s like when you have a cold or getting a vaccine, because your body has dealt with a cold before, hopefully your cells will be stronger and fight it off quicker than last time.
I know it isn’t easy to accept that one day it will be Ok. And right now it feels like the weight of the world is coming down on you, but it will get easier and lighter to carry. You’ve got to go through it, to get stronger. Just grit your teeth and do whatever needs to be done, because you will be so thankful for it later. You might not be able to see it now, but there will be a faint ray of light that will guide you through it. And if you can’t see it yet, you’ve just got to keep going until you do. It can be a long, hard road though. So I can only hope that your friends will stand by you and support you when you need it. And when you need space I hope they will give you some distance.
