You made it through

You’ve experienced difficult situations you thought you would never get through. And yet you did make it through.

There have been times when challenges seemed to completely overwhelm you. And though you thought you might never overcome them, you did.

You’ve suffered losses you thought you’d never be able to get beyond. And as painful as they were, you found a way to move forward.

So here you are now, stronger, wiser, with valuable skills, knowledge and experience. Every difficulty that has come, you’ve made it through, and have grown as a result.

Yes, there will likely be more rough times ahead, and perhaps you’re going through some particularly difficult ones right now. So it’s good to remind yourself often of those times when you couldn’t see yourself making it through, and yet you did.

There’s really never any reason to doubt yourself, for each time the challenges seemed insurmountable, you made it through. And even more importantly, going forward, you will again.

— Ralph Marston
