“Maybe it’s not supposed to be easy for you. Maybe you’re one of the rare few who can handle tough times and still choose to be a loving person. Maybe it’s going how it’s going because you’re built for it…
Don’t stress a thing. It’s going to work out because you’re not going to stop putting the work in.” -Rob Hill Sr
I know sometimes life feels like you’re swimming in the ocean and no matter how long you tread for, the waves just keep crashing over your head.
I know sometimes it’s not easy to keep your head above the water.
And even sometimes you feel like it might be easier to just stop treading, and let those waves take you in.
Maybe if you just stop fighting the waves, it will all get better.
That feeling scares you, doesn’t it? The one that passes through your mind every so often, telling you it might be easier to just let go instead of to keep fighting these constant battles that life just won’t let you win.
The fact that your mind even briefly comes to that conclusion is terrifying, and rattles your composure even more than it already has been.
You’re trying so hard to keep it together but everything is really starting to be too much at once and you just don’t know how much you can take anymore.
It sounds easier to just stop holding on all together than to keep gripping the rope that’s slipping out of your hands.
You’re not alone when you get that feeling like you want to just let it all go.
And just because sometimes you feel like giving up might be easier than holding on, doesn’t mean there’s anything wrong with you.
Think about it this way for just a minute.
Every time you’ve come close to giving it all away, you stop yourself. You think it’s because you’re scared but it’s really because you’re strong.
You’re stronger than you will ever give yourself credit for.
You’re not out of fight yet, and you never will be. You have more endurance inside of you than you could ever know and I promise you that each time you fight another battle you’ll surprise yourself every time.
Because you’ll always keep going.
As much as you think giving up sounds like the better option you’ll never do it because you’re stronger than that.
You’re so much better than giving up or giving in.
Have a little faith in the person you are and you’ll come to realize that there’s nothing life can throw at you that can bring you down, because you’ll get up every single time.
You have that badass inside of you and with that you can get passed everything that’s trying to bring you down.
Every wave that tries to come crashing over you will never be big enough to make you drown.
And every time those waves feel like they’re up to your chin, remember that they’ll never be stronger than you.
