Personal Note: Why You Should Not Give Up
No matter what the situation is, never lose hope that everything is going to be alright.
It is always true that there is always a rainbow after the rain. Just look up and have faith.
Believe in God. He will never forsake you.
Many times I have found myself in the brink of giving up.
Let me share to you my not so SECRET journey in this NOT SO PERFECT life of mine.
It was only a few months ago when I was at my worst.
- Break up after 7 long years
- Scammed Bitcoin investment of 40k +
- Failed attempt to get a successful job in Thailand
- Debts due to impulsive decisions
- Jobless for 2 months and more…
All those things happened starting January of this year.
I had been through a lot.
I thought depression was just a myth, an over reaction of those over acting people.
But, I woke up one day inside this box, where all I can think are those unhappy moments happening in my life.
I was very lonely. 😭
My thoughts were all scattered like a dropped tea tray that you do not know which piece you are going to pick first.
I tried regaining my strength, my appetite to life, yet my mind was diluted with negativity. I was so depressed. I had panic attacks.
But, amidst of it all, I did not lose my grip to the last strand of hope that was left in my hands.
I have my family. I have my friends. I have my God.
What I did?
✅I kept living my life. I pushed and forced myself to wake up every day and look forward to every chance and opportunity that I could get.
✅I have read a lot. Just random books just to ignite my enthusiasm.
✅I have written a lot. Just random writings to release unpleasant vibes that were trying to consume me.
I have reminded myself, every time my heart starts to beat faster again, that EVERYTHING WILL BE OVER SOON. I just need to let the great waves subside.
I stayed strong, though honestly, my whole being was breaking inside.
I stayed close to my family and my special friends. During those times that I was on the darkest days of my life, only a few truly helped me.
My family – my sisters were the best.
I also had my best friend as my outlet and my constant companion during those days.
Without these people, I won’t be able to surpass those serious trials.
It was never easy.
Now, I am on the phase of starting all over again. I am so fortunate to have what I have right now.
I am living a different life right now – far from what I want for myself, but I hope this is the life that God wants me to have.
All those things will be worthless if I have not learned anything from it. Learnings were inculcated deep down to my bones.
Those were treasures I have gained as rewards of the hard times I have conquered.
If I gave up, the moment when troubles started to make their appearance, I will not have this chance to savor more the life that God planned for me.
What I have right now and the hopes of my tomorrows are igniting some sparks inside of me and I do not want that flame to die.
