First, understand that you are never alone. There are always people out there- whether they’re family or friends-there are people out there who care about you, even love you. No matter what’s bothering you, or making you feel like you’re the only person on Earth, there’s thousands of people out there who are feeling the same way. And there’s thousands more who can sympathize with you. People who have been there, people who understand.
I’ve had my share if adversities just like everybody else. I’ve had my heart broken, I’ve been scared, I’ve been hurt. And yes, I’ve felt alone. But then I realize that I’m not alone. I have my family, who are always kind and supportive. I also have my friends, who always remind me of all the good, fun things in life.
But the person I rely on on the most...is myself.
When I feel alone, anxious, or upset, I am my most valuable asset. Although friends and family help me more than you could ever know, what ultimately keeps me going, is well...me. No matter how deep I’ve been cut, I’ve been able to pick myself back up. In these blue times, I remind myself that I am a strong, brave, beautiful person. Sometimes I say this outloud to myself, to cement these facts even further.
The same applies to you. In dark times, you must remember that you are an amazing person. Say it out loud to yourself like I do, or write it down, or repeat it in your head over and over. Because it’s true. No emotions, good or bad last forever. So remember this next time you feel alone: you are strong, your are durable, you can accomplish anything.
