“The struggle you’re in today is developing the strength you need for tomorrow. Don’t give up.”
I just found this post-it stuck on a magazine that I never got round to reading during an horrific 6 month stay in hospital. The quote, written in my hand, couldn’t be more apt; right now I don’t want to get through the struggle of today, it’s too much and I’ve fought too long; but I do want to help people. These struggles certainly will give me the insight needed to make a real difference to people – the only question is whether I’m brave enough to fight through it.
I’m so tired. I’m so scared. But I’m trying to listen to ‘past me’s advice. I want to help. I just feel like I’m too far gone to get through this.
