We are all unique. We all have things that we are facing in this life. We are all facing different trials, surrounded by different circumstances. And it's hard. Some of us might be facing anxiety, depression, addiction, anger.. we all have a battle we are facing. And it's so so hard and it sucks. This life can be crap sometimes. We live in a world where people are telling us that we can't do it or that we aren't enough. But that is bull. Those are the lies. You ARE enough. And you can do it. No matter what battle you are facing in life, when it feels like you have been defeated, please remember that you are not defeated. You are enough and you can do it. You might not be able to do it by yourself, and that's okay. None of us can go through life facing battles by ourselves. If you're facing alcoholism, addiction, no matter what it is, there is always someone that understands exactly what you're going through. You're not alone. The most important thing is realizing what your problem is and accepting that you might need help. Once you accept this, you can take steps to getting help. For me, I have delt a lot with anxiety, fear, and not being able to express my feelings towards people. I feel everything, but don't like to show many emotions because I feel like I have to always have it together, which is not healthy. I've had to go to people to get help and speak truth into my life. But it takes wanting to make a change in your life and choosing to let someone in and help you. It takes choosing the hard way, the way of working on the problem that is running your life. You have a choice to let your problem run your life or you can choose to defeat it. It's not going to be easy, but nothing worth fighting for ever is. I hope you know how loved you are and that you are not alone. Get help because you are worth fighting for and the anxiety and fears and evil in this world never deserve to run your life. Seek a friend out, a mentor, or anyone that you might be able to put your trust in to speak truth into your life and walk with you through life. I hope this helped with whatever trial you're facing in life. Remember you're not alone and you are worth it!! You can do it, but you have to believe in yourself and it all comes down to making a choice. Remember that it's okay to not have it all together and it's okay to not be okay all the time. I hope this helps in some way. You are so loved.
