Life has it's way of throwing things at us that we don't expect, right? Sometimes, they can be nice surprises, and other times, well, they can be not so nice. We all have our personal struggles, and I think that we sometimes underestimate ourselves with how well we do to overcome these on a daily basis.
I think this happens because sometimes we don't realise that something is a struggle. We've become so used and accustomed to just 'dealing with it', and using whatever methods we've developed over the years, that we forget we're actually doing something amazing, every day.
I think we're also guilty of comparing our struggles with others. I know I do this a lot. You read about people who are having to deal with so much, that you begin to think that yours isn't really worth anything anymore.
Well, no, actually. We shouldn't undermine our own accomplishments and strengths. We don't know how anyone else would cope with what we've been through, or, are going through.
Because we're not someone else. You, my friend, are you, and you're stronger than you think.
