Happy Wednesday everyone, it’s Shirley from the PatientNextDoor Support Team.
I have to agree wholeheartedly with this quote.
I have faced many severe and overwhelming life changes. However, having worked through them I have a better understanding of myself than most people will ever have.
Yes, facing life on life’s terms is tough, but the growth and maturity one gains are wonderful!
There are two saying in the mental health community that has helped me tremendously.
One is Face Every problem And Recovery (F.E.A.R.) Running from what frightens you does not make it go away. However, facing those fears and working through them does.
The second is piggybacked onto the first.
The Only Way Out is Through. Working through the problems of your life is the only course that works. You can’t ignore them, you can’t go around, over or under them, all you can do and be successful in life is to work your way through them.
But, cheer up. Even with life’s ups and downs, it is still a beautiful experience. Bad days will come, yes, but those are usually outnumbered by the good only we get so caught up in the drama and trauma that we forget about the good.
Enjoy your life, we’re all in this together.
