What To Do When You Feel Like Everything Is Against You

middle

Life could cause us a lot of headaches, isn’t that right? You might be going through something difficult today too, you might feel like quitting, you might just wanna give up because nothing makes sense anymore in your life. Everything seems to be against you and you just can’t figure out where you’re headed. Your issue seems impossible to fix and it brought you to the end of your powers.

Acknowledge your pain

More often than not you find yourself having to face new troubles, small or big, and you just have to get over it every time. Let me feel with you right now, because I know we’re not promised a life without pain and suffering. I know that what you’re going through really matters and I know that it hurts, even if there’s always someone who tells you that your problem is small compared to the great hunger in Africa or the homeless in your neighbourhood.

Tell your story

In your world, what you’re facing right now is complicated and all too real. But here’s something else I know: regardless of what you’re going through, it’s not gonna last forever and even if it’s hard and it breaks you down, you have a lesson to learn from it. I also know that you’re strong, even if you don’t feel like it. If you’re over sensitive and vulnerable in this moment, it doesn’t mean that you’re actually weak. You can get through this, but have some patience with yourself. I don’t know what caused the wounds, but give yourself some time to heal. Cry if you need it, let loose and talk to someone about the season you’re in. Tell your story. Don’t hold it in, unless you want it to grow inside of you. Unless you want to grow weary. Small problems get bigger when you carry them alone.

Leave your past and live your present

After you do that, let the past stay in the past. Stop bringing with you everything that’s taken place before, because that’s how you keep getting stuck over there. Leave your past and live your present. Do you know what’s worse than a damaged present? A damaged future. You don’t want something that has already passed to have something to say for the rest of your life. Get up and speak to your problem! Tell it you’re not alone, tell it that you’re brave, you’re strong and that it’s enough.

Believe you have an ever-present help

I encourage you to keep fighting, my dear. You can do it. You can get through this. You’re not alone. You may not see anyone tangible next to you, but I have great news for you. You’ve got Jesus by your side! And I’m telling you, He’s so excited to listen to what you have to say, He’s so willing to get involved in your world, in your life. He’s not somewhere far away, careless of the pain you’re experiencing right now. He’s right next to you, He’s a personal God, willing to have a personal relationship with you, He’s interested in every little detail in your life.

If there’s something I’d like you to leave this page with, it’s this amazing truth - you’re not alone! You’re stronger than you think! You’re braver than you can imagine!

Viata ne poate da multe batai de cap, nu-i asa? Poate ca si tu esti o persoana care trece printr-o situatie grea astazi, probabil simti ca nu mai poti si vrei sa renunti, pentru ca nimic nu mai are sens. Totul pare ca e impotriva ta si nu ai nici o idee in ce directie sa o iei. Situatia ta pare de nerezolvat si te-a adus la capatul puterilor.

Admite ceea ce simti

Foarte des te confrunti cu probleme noi, mici sau mari si esti obligata sa mergi inainte mereu. Lasa-ma sa empatizez putin cu tine, pentru ca stiu ca uneori viata poate sa fie foarte dura, stiu ca nu suntem privati de suferinta. Stiu ca doare sa treci prin ceea ce treci acum, si vreau sa iti spun ca problema ta e importanta, chiar daca cineva iti zice mereu ca problemele tale sunt nimic pe langa foametea din Africa sau lucrurile cu care se confrunta oamenii care dorm in strada.

Spune-ti povestea

In lumea ta, problemele tale sunt complicate si cat se poate de reale. Dar mai stiu un lucru: indiferent prin ce treci, nu poate sa fie ceva ce dureaza la infinit si chiar daca e greu, trebuie sa stii ca din orice situatie care te doboara poti sa inveti ceva bun. Mai stiu ca esti puternica, chiar daca tu nu simti asta. Daca in momentul acesta tu esti sensibila si vulnerabila, nu inseamna ca esti slaba. Poti sa treci peste asta, dar ai rabdare cu tine. Nu stiu ce ti-a cauzat ranile, dar ofera-ti timp sa te vindeci. Plangi daca ai nevoie, descarca-te si povesteste cu cineva despre greutatile tale, despre slabiciunile tale. Spune-ti povestea. Nu tine totul in tine, decat daca vrei sa prinda radacini inauntrul tau. Problemele mici se transforma in probleme mai mari atunci cand le duci singura.

Pune trecutul deoparte, imbratiseaza prezentul

Dupa ce ai facut asta, lasa trecutul sa ramana in trecut. Inceteaza sa mai aduci cu tine ceea ce a fost candva, altfel ramai blocata acolo si nu iti traiesti prezentul. Uita trecutul. Uite prezentul! Ba mai mult, daca traiesti in trecut, chiar si viitorul tau va avea de suferit. Nu lasa ceea ce a trecut sa dicteze ceea ce urmeaza sa vina. Ridica-te si vorbeste problemei tale. Spune-i ca nu esti singura, ca esti curajoasa, puternica si ca te-ai saturat sa te lasi doborata.

Crede ca ai un ajutor care nu pleaca niciodata

Te incurajez sa nu te opresti din lupta, draga mea. Poti sa faci asta. Poti sa treci si prin asta. Nu esti singura. Poate ca nu e nimeni langa tine in mod vizibil, dar am o veste foarte buna pentru tine. Isus e acolo, chiar langa tine. Si e atat de nerabdator sa te ascute si sa se implice in viata ta. El nu se uita nepasator la tine de undeva de departe, neinteresat de durerea pe care o simti in momentele astea. E un Dumnezeu personal, care vrea sa aiba o relatie personala cu tine. E interesat de fiecare detaliu din viata ta.

.

Daca e sa ramai cu ceva din acest articol, sper sa ramai cu increderea ca nu esti niciodata singura. Ca esti mai puternica decat simti si mai curajoasa decat crezi!
