I’ve been thinking a lot lately about how to get through the rough patches of life, because let’s be honest,
There’s a shit ton of rough patches.
Life has it’s ups and downs, and downs and downs, and honestly, those times are never gonna stop happening. You could wake up one day, happy as ever, and get hit with news there was no way of anticipating which then ruins your mood for the rest of forever.
Keep in mind, life is simply just not perfect. So if you’re expecting life to be a joy ride, you’re going to be even more hurt when those bad times pop up. Keep your expectations realistic, and when those rough times come, keep your friends and loved ones close to ease the pain. At the end of the day, all we have is each other, and so we should all try to be that shoulder to cry on for as many people as we can. There’s no shame in needing a shoulder either.
Keep your eyes on the end game, and don’t let the bad times in life get in your way. It’s pretty easy to let those bad times consume you, but they aren’t absolute. So stay strong everyone, and if anyone ever needs a virtual shoulder, feel free to send me a message.
