There are times when all looks dim and bleak, but if we look hard enough, there is always a way, no matter how tight that way may appear.
At that point in time when we are passing through hellish moments, we don’t stop to wallow in it and in self-pity. We have to keep moving.
Even if our will power is flagging, look to someone’s own to latch on to. There is absolutely no shame in leaning on someone’s shoulder momentarily while you catch your breath if need be. People are sent into our lives at some points in time for reasons such as this.
The only shame is in giving up because you have the fear of being judged or you are too proud. The persons judgement is not your problem.
Your problem is in staying focused and getting out of the miry bog in which you are stuck in.
Know that even at the end of the darkest tunnel, there will always be found a sliver of light, and, yes the darkness will pass. For the only constant in life is change and no situation ever remains permanent.
Surviving your test allows you the opportunity to be a testimony to others and someone else’s leaning post at one point in time or the other.
Be patient as you strive and keep looking in the way of the light.
