Never give up on your dreams no matter how long it takes. It may feel like its taking forever and there will be times when you feel down and discouraged. In times like that remind yourself, “This too shall pass.” No situation is permanent. Change is the law of life. Believe in yourself. Stay focused and keep moving forward one step at a time. Don’t think about your past, its gone! Doesn’t matter what happened back then. Do the best you can now! Don’t listen to negative things people tell you. Go with your gut instinct. If it works out great! If not start over. There is no right or wrong answer. Whatever works stick with it and build on it. Don’t get stuck analyzing and over analyzing why it didn’t work out whether its a relationship, a job, whatever it is that you wanted. You will end up emotionally exhausted and going around in circles. Keep moving forward.
Take some time to heal from the hurt and the disappointments but let go of it quickly because you need to make room for new ideas, opportunities and people to come into your life. Besides if you hold on to it, you are headed down hill and that’s not where you want to be. Try to remember that failures play an important role in pointing us in the right direction. Whatever happened may not make sense and may seem unfair at that time. But later on at some point in your life when you look back it will all make sense. You will realize that it was supposed to happen that way so you could be where you are today.
Trying to figure it all out on your own can be difficult. Share your experiences with others. You will see that you are not the only one struggling. Besides you will come across some great stories of courage, strength, wisdom, hope and faith. Your story could inspire someone and give them the strength they need to go on. Stand tall, stay positive and keep walking towards your goals. While you are at it make some friends and have a great time along the way. Before you know it you will be there because time goes by quickly anyways!
