This is the first thought for many of us have when things start going awry.
How often do we say this when things are going suburb?
Why do we have this mindset that things should go well always? It’s actually a dangerous state of being that can cause life’s hits to knock us harder than they are meant to.
How about intentionally stopping and thinking about how you will grow through hardships. Look for how hardships stretch you and press through them knowing they pass. They are a part of the ebb and flow of life. Yes, it’s easier said than done. However, the way we respond to the ‘why me’ situations can break us or make us stronger.
It’s worth changing the narrative to the more positive, “how can I grow through this?”
Many hardships do make us strong in many ways. They also help us to lean on others and reveal who our true supporters are. It’s is empowering to look back on something that snared you, that you overcame and became better for it.
I will overcome, I will get through this and be better for it…
These are more mentally uplifting in the tough times. Speak these positive things over your situation and fight your way through.
