Give thanks to the people who have brought you to your knees, for they gifted you the opportunity to uncover a strength you would have otherwise never known you had within you – the strength to get back up. With every hit of their chisel, with every bit of you they chipped away, they refined you into the person you are today. And if you feel unhappy with who you are now, your self is not the real problem. It is a matter of perception, and it is your perception of your self that has yet to align with who you really are.
While understandably difficult in the throes of suffering, fight against yourself and fight for yourself to never lose sight of the fact that this too shall indeed pass, as all things do, and you will be better off because of it. You will be wiser, you will be stronger, and you will be that much more adept at handling pain. You will also be that much more capable of experiencing and offering happiness, for now you know what misery feels like, and you will be better at avoiding it and less likely to cause it to those you love. You will have grown in ways that will only improve your quality of life, in time, if you are open to healing and bettering yourself. If you are open to being the amazing person that you might not yet know you can be.
Give thanks to the people who have brought you to your knees, for they challenged you to push your limits and emerge victorious.
Give thanks to the people who have brought you to your knees, for without them, you would have remained a fool.
