“Embrace the struggle” I love this message and one we often forget when we’re deep in the trenches trying to hold on. Adversity is not easy and sometimes it causes so much pain we lose hope that things will ever get better. We start to believe our partners will never listen to our needs, that we’ll always feel worthless and alone, that no matter how hard we try, we’ll never get that promotion or land that big deal at work.
And while part of being human is never wanting to suffer, it’s in the struggle when we learn the most. When our true strength is tested and we have the chance to grow into our greatest selves. So next time you find yourself feeling down, try to lean in. Open yourself up and let it “make you stronger” and remember it may hurt now, but “it won’t last forever.”
