What is it that keeps us going? When everything seems so futile; when you don’t even want to get up in the morning because you already know how difficult and arduous the day ahead will be; when you don’t want to speak to anyone because you can’t handle the high possibility of encountering some stupid situation. What is it that can keep the wheels of our life in motion? Because we’ve all been there. At that brim when we want to simply give up.
The truth is, we’re the only ones that can talk ourselves up. No matter how many pep talks you receive from people around you. Or how harshly they tell you ugly truths so that you can ground yourself back to reality. It is only our own minds that can truly lift us out of the darkness we plunge ourselves into.
It takes assiduous and constant effort to encourage and inspire yourself. To remind you that there are more important problems than the ones you’re facing. And that things will find their solution, there is always a way. It somehow always appears.
Most often we need to rekindle in us the motivation we give to others. It’s harder to inspire yourself. But it’s the thing we need most. Simply to keep us going.
