A Reminder to Keep Going

Be not afraid of growing slowly; be afraid only of standing still — Chinese Proverb

At one point in my life, I almost gave up on myself. I had no one to talk to and I had no reason to keep going. But I always pushed myself and reminded myself that it will get better. I’m glad I went through that because it made me who I am today. I realized I can be strong and I am strong because I’ve gone through a lot.

This point taught me that life wasn’t waiting for me to deal with my lows. Time never stopped, even when I woke up with no desire to tackle the day, I made it to the next day. This is a reminder to keep going, even if you don’t see light at the end of the tunnel. Life isn’t waiting for you while you shut down. It’s okay to take time off from life. Just don’t get stuck in the ‘off life’. No one will wait for you. No matter what happens, time passes and life moves on.

I suggest you keep going.

Keep going, even if you feel alone. It is in this moment that we learn about ourselves. When I had no one to talk to, I had to pull through. In the end, I had myself to thank and learnt a lot about myself. I encouraged myself and motivated myself to make it through by living one day at a time.

Keep going, even when you feel hopeless. Don’t give up on yourself because you are overflowing with potential. Looking at what I have accomplished, I am glad I didn’t give up on myself. I’m glad I stuck around a little longer because I owed it to myself. You are destined for grand things in life. You just have to hold on to a glimmer of hope.

It might be hard today, and it might be even harder tomorrow, but making it through each day will be worth it.
