You can do this.
At one point or another in life, everyone reaches a point where everything becomes a little too much and it seems impossible to go on. You become lost in the haze of bad days and sleepless nights. You struggle to remember who you were before the event that changed you for the worse and even after the dust settles, you don’t know if you’ll ever be as happy as you were before it happened.
With each bad thing that life throws at you, you think to yourself “at least this is as bad as it’s ever going to get.” But flash forward a few days, weeks, months, or years and life throws you an even bigger curveball.
While you may feel the urge to punch a wall or scream into the void, you have no choice but to make it through. It’s unfair and the world is a cruel place but there’s comfort in the fact that you’re not alone. It’s a part of life and we must learn to overcome the struggles we face over the years.
Everyone has their specialties when comforting friends. Some are listeners; they can empathize and react in a way that shows they care. Others are talkers; they can say exactly what the person needs to hear. It takes a special someone to be both.
But where someone struggles to find the right words, another has already said them. Where one struggles to understand what someone is going through, another has gone through it themselves.
Words of encouragement are not only for the struggling; they are also for the successful. Everyone reaches a point where they need to be humbled or they need to remember where they came from. Here is how you help them, and yourself: by looking back at those who have felt the same profound sadness or confusion that you have. These people have been put down and defeated but they are still here, even if only through their words, to tell the tale. They made it, and so will you.
So when you feel like life is too much and need some inspiration to go on, look to these 40 quotes of encouragement to get you through even the toughest days.
