Five Essential Messages – Do you ever feel overwhelmed, stuck, or sad? It’s important to remind yourself that tough times will pass and you will feel better. With that in mind, how can you take care of yourself during those difficult moments?
Some days, the weight of the world can feel too heavy to bear. You might feel stuck, confused, overwhelmed, worried, or sad. But during these moments, it’s important to remind yourself that it will pass and you will feel better. Here are some reassuring words to help you get through those tough times.
Take Your Time:
Don’t rush yourself. There is no need to hurry. Most things in life don’t come with an expiration date, and opportunities will be available when you’re ready and willing to try them. You can always embark on a new path, try out a new hobby, or make a change in your life. There’s no set age by which you should achieve specific goals. Instead, there are always new things to explore.
Furthermore, you don’t have to constantly chase after specific outcomes. Allow yourself to focus on the process and appreciate it from beginning to end. Even if things don’t work out exactly how you hoped, you can still find value in the experience thanks to how much you learned and how much fun you had along the way.
Sustainable Happiness Comes From Within:
We can’t control other people. We can’t force them to stay in our lives or do things that make us happy. We can’t guarantee they will never leave us or disappoint us or change. But that’s okay because our happiness should not depend on them. True happiness comes from within. When we make peace with ourselves, accept ourselves as we are, and work on our own well-being, we become less dependent on others for our own happiness. When someone makes you feel unhappy, remember that you have everything you need within yourself to be happy.
It’s Okay to Take a Break:
You deserve to rest. Even if you’re not making progress or have made a mistake, you deserve to take some time for yourself and feel better. You might feel that you haven’t earned a break yet, but if you need to stop, just do it. Taking a short break will not hurt your work, and it might even help you achieve better results.
Beyond work, planning breaks can help you stay better both emotionally and physically. Even if you’re not succeeding as much as you want, you still deserve to take a break because you deserve to be well. If you need a day off, give yourself permission to take it. You don’t always have to be doing something.
It’s Never Too Late:
No matter your age, you can still achieve great things. At 50, 60, 70, 80, and beyond, you can still start that business, join the dance club, or work towards your ideal body. Don’t let your age hold you back. After all, it’s one trait that will not get smaller. However, it doesn’t mean that you should let it stop you. If you want to do it, it’s never too late.
It Will Be Okay:
Today might not be okay, and neither might tomorrow. But soon, things will get better. The one guarantee in life is that nothing lasts forever, which means that bad times will pass and probably sooner than you think.
Things are going to get better. They have to, by the sheer law of probability. Nothing can stay at its worst point forever. Remember that whatever you’re dealing with right now, it’s only temporary. It will pass. It will change.
This is especially important to remember when you’re dealing with a situation beyond your control. Even if you can’t do anything to remedy the situation, it will still resolve, in one way or another. You won’t have to deal with it forever. You just have to deal with it for now.
