Be proud of yourself.

on

There are days we just survive and nothing positive happens except getting the chance of a new tomorrow. Those days are dark, filled with anxiety and depressing thoughts, silently waiting to be given permission to invade our lives.

Sometimes we feel trapped and helpless in our heads, trying so hard to reach our goals even when we can barely see them and we’re at our lowest. But still, we rise and do our fucking best to survive and give ourselves a better chance at life. If that’s not something to be proud of I don’t know what is.

Most people won’t know the full extent of your struggles or your pain. Most people will never understand that maybe getting out of bed in the morning is a struggle or going to a job is painful, only you will be able to do that for yourself. And that’s okay, as long as you remember to celebrate your small victories and be proud of the small steps you are taking towards a better future.

Just because others aren’t aware of your sacrifices doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be proud of them. Those small victories are the ones that lift you up and carry you through the day. Don’t diminish anything and appreciate everything.

Appreciate having another day, appreciate having another chance, and appreciate getting closer to your goal. Eventually, you will get to where you want to be and those dark days will be left behind, making room for happier days to come. Days where you finally reap what you’ve so carefully sowed and days where you can be even prouder of yourself.

Think of those days to get you through the tough ones and stay strong! You are doing the best you can.
