The Struggle is Real

There are billions of people on this earth and no two are the same.

There are so many people, yet only a few who will truly cheer you on and push you to be your best. Not everyone will be kind and uplifting.


There are billions of people on this earth and no two are the same. There are so many people, yet only a few who will truly cheer you on and push you to be your best. Not everyone will be kind and uplifting. I admit I’ve had my moments of ugly. Moments where I spoke rude, cruel, hurtful words. Through the years it finally clicked that my mom was right. Just because you inflict pain on someone that hurt you first does not fix or make the situation any better.

Words can be so much more damaging than physical pain. The words we speak to another person have the ability to stay with them for years. It isn’t always the exact words you said, but they remember how you made them feel in that moment.

I cannot speak for you, but I would rather someone remember the kindness and light they felt from whatever I said to them, than feelings of hurt or pain.

It is never too late to change the way we make people feel. Choose to be someone who lifts others up in their time of need instead of kicking them while they’re down. The world could use some genuine love and kindness right now.

There will always be room to grow and be better than who you were yesterday, or even five minutes ago. We are all imperfect people who make mistakes and start down the wrong path. What sets you apart is how you choose to react when you realize you have done something wrong.

Love and hate. Two very powerful words. Use them sparingly. If I tell someone I love them, in whatever form it may be, I mean it with every ounce of my being or I would not say it aloud.

Hate. Four letters that reflect so much in one very small word. Years ago, the hatred I felt for anyone or anything left my soul. You cannot grow with hate in your heart. Be so full of love that there is no room for hate. We are not called to hate, but to love one another. Regardless of their wrongdoings. In the end, it will only be you that feels any pin. I may have a strong distaste or dislike for something but never will I have anyone for anything.

We all have experienced pain, and continue to because this prod is overcome with it. Choose to grow instead of letting it overtake you.

Start over. Right here, right now. Make the you from five minutes ago a kinder, more gentle person. The world needs more people like you.
