Read This During The Tough Times Of Your Life..!!

in #life4 years ago (edited)

It is rightly said by someone,
"The pain you feel today is the strength you feel tomorrow. For every challenge encountered, there is an opportunity for growth."


Often, during the worst times of your life, you feel worthless and want to give up on everything. You get into a series of negative emotions that continuously bothers you and puts you more down in life. You start to think that you can never get out of all this shit.

Yes, there are times when you experience a shaken faith, and life split into fragments you cannot ever imagine to bring back altogether. Yes, there are times, when you're on your knees with a broken spirit, and an aching heart. There are times when no matter how hard you try, you are unable to see a single ray of hope around.

There are times when no matter how hard you try, you find yourself depleted, defeated, and disappointed. You see, no one with whom you can share your sorrows. You only experience negativity and negative people around you.

You get heavy in heart, that feeling triggers you, and you want to cry loudly. But, the thing is you must not control your tears at that time. Instead, you must cry as much as you can. You'll feel good! No doubt, you'll feel better!

At such times of heavy stresses in life, you must realize that you are not alone in the race. There are a majority of the people today, who at some the other point in life, suffer from the problems of hopelessness, disappointments, regrets, failures, and other negative emotions. There are people who can't stay happy at a job and change them frequently(whatsoever be the reason), there are people who encounter relationship failures(love life failures, breakups, failures in friendships), there are people the opinions of whom don't match with their parents, and they are in constant fight with them, there are people who see failures in business, jobs, relationships, and ultimately get stressed and depressed from life.

So, you must realize that you're not alone in the race, you are not the only one struggling with the tough times and finding ways to get through it all, there are many like you in the race who are finding a little hope of light amidst all darkness.

Be strong and don't let the tough times put you down.

Remember what Alonzo Mourning said,
"Tough times don't last, but tough people do. And I've been through some tough times, and I know a lot of people can recall tough times and maybe are going through some tough times right now, but they don't last."

Life can be tough and may seem uncontrollable at times. But, no matter how tired you feel about having tired, you must go on. Go quietly, go slowly, go timidly, but go on. Yes, you are indeed tired for all the right reasons, you are tired because you have to be, you are tired because you are now mature, you are tired because you are growing and someday that growth will make your dream come true.

You are tired because you are kicking toxic people out of your life, you are tired because you are making a change, you are tired because you are fighting for justice, for yourself, for the right reasons. Yes, you are tired for all the right, you are tired because you have learned the art of letting go, you are tired because you have stopped waiting for someone to come and change your life and are doing it for you all by yourself, you are tired because you know the truth and that believing in hard work and the universe will ultimately give you what you want in life, maybe not now, but surely at a point in future.

Yes, you are tired, no doubt, you are tired, but go on, go on, believe more, and go on.

To tell the truth, when hard times hit, and challenges come your way, you can either let your situation define you, let it destroy you, or let it strengthen you. Only you are responsible for the choice you make.

Here are a few powerful yet easily forgotten truths to help you choose wisely and grow even stronger during the tough times in life:

1. Half of the Battle is of the Mindset

If you win your mind, you win the race and every struggle in life, and that too, with grace. Mindset plays an important game when it comes to changing your thoughts and ultimately changing your reality. When you realize that nothing, but, it is the mind that bothers you, you never feel hopeless with the pain of any situation, and you grow up each time you fail, count on the blessings in life without complaining about what you do not have, and move ahead for the better forever!

2. There is Always Something, Something to be Thankful for

Even if you are all surrounded by struggles, anxieties, problems, difficulties in life, you cannot deny that there is still something that can make you feel grateful. Figure out the blessings in your life and smile. Being positive in a negative situation is not a sign of innocence, and instead, it reveals your true strength and leadership skills. You do right when you choose to smile and appreciate your life even if you have so much to complain about and cry.

Be mature, do right, admire small beautiful things around you, find joy in little things, and smile. Life is a gift, and you only have to realize. Happiness does not make you happy at the end of the day, and your gratitude towards things make you happy.

3. Pain is a Part of Love and Life, and it Only Helps You Grow

No doubt, right from an early age, you are taught that pain is harmful and evil. But do you ever wonder what will happen if you are afraid to feel what you feel? Pain is crucial, it helps you grow, and without it, you can't move with stability. It is when you consistently feel pain in your life that you consistently grow. Pain makes you a better person.

Pain wakes you up to the reality of life. You need to feel pain the same as you need to feel loved and alive. Pain means a lot in life, yet you always try to hide your pain. So, realize that, just like good sense, pain is something to carry by choice. In the end, you can only know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice left!

4. Great Things Take Time

Great things take time. If you want to run a multi-millionaire company, you may have to spend years working on it. You have to put in regular efforts and grow step by step. Instant results are rarely the best ones. With patience and determination, you can surely boost your results, and reach your desired place in life. Remember that if you receive instant gratification, you will never have anything left to look forward to in life. You will always crave the joys of progress and success after years of hard work.

Also, if your wishes get immediately fulfilled, you can instantly lose them too. Creating something of value takes commitment and time. Be the creator of your life, and leave something for people to remember for centuries. Go slowly, but go regularly. One day, you get it all!


Life is a gift, and life is a blessing! One of the best advantages life offers to us is the fact that it is difficult. We grow, get our path, fulfill our inner voids and life's meaningful purposes, and recognize our strength amidst dealing with life's struggles. Only because life is tough that we matter, do something of value, and make a difference in the world!

Remember this..

Be tougher when life is tough, and don't let the tough times distract you. You grow more strong each time you fail. Always wish a life that gives you the strength to lead your path towards greatness and distinct success.

Hope you all enjoyed the post..

Much Love<3<3<3


I agree with you that tough time will not for ever & we have to take chalenges.
I think your content will encourage those who are feeling frustation at this moment.We have to take pain to be strength.

Yes, without pain, growth is not possible. Nothing in the life but it is the tough times that makes us grow and feel better about ourselves! Only if we understand that..
