“I’m glad I did.” How does it feel like to be the one to say those words someday? Those words are something, right? It means a lot, hm? Speaks a lot. It would make you want to achieve something but there’s a lot to surrender. How nice would it be to finally make it? And is it gonna be worth it? Or would that be the reason why you have to suffer all over again?
I’m glad I did
Here’s the thing, it will never be easy. It is hard to cope up these days, right? It is hard to keep your mind at ease. Oftentimes you lose yourself. Most of the time, you lose your peace of mind. This pandemic makes you even lose your well-earned sanity and patience. But it doesn’t mean that this pandemic will get you out of control. A pandemic may have been so harsh to you and to your peace of mind but hang in there!
Always remember to look around. It’s not just you who’s hanging, fighting, suffering, and living. Some people have too much on their plates but they still keep on going. Some have difficulties with controlling their anger but they keep on trying. Few are having fun but are not happy. Most are pressured by their own family. And most are fighting their demons. Different people with different struggles.
Not everyone will be happy with your achievements but none of them matter. Your happiness must be your first to check. Someday, you’ll gonna be telling yourself genuinely ‘I’m glad I did, ‘I’m glad I hold on’. The rough road will always be rough. No one can make a rough road an easy one. Rough roads always bring us to where we are supposed to be. Life is hard and it makes it even harder these days.
My point is, dream to tell these words to yourself one day, ‘I’m glad I did because you will and you can as long as you are fighting. To someone who’s not feeling okay lately, remember why you are where you are right now.
