I've been through far too many things in my life and believe me, at times, I struggled to keep going. It took all my strength to not give up. I'm sure you've had those moments and I'm not alone in this.
Here is what I wrote in an attempt to help. Keep in mind, that sometimes no matter what someone says or what you read, words are never always enough. Sometimes, moments in life just suck. Keep going - no matter what!
Keep going when all else seems like it is too hard to deal with in a day. When your troubles before you feel like they are bigger than you can comprehend, don't give up. Keep going!
Keep going when it feels like the earth is falling away from you and you're flying without a rope. When moments come by as if there is nothing you can do, don't give up. Keeping going!
Keep going when the memories from your past haunt you and attempt to encompass your every move. Don't give in. Don't give up the fight. Take them right back from whatever is trying to steal your life's essence. Tell them to get lost. Tell them you are taking back your life.
Keep going when it feels like there are no answers. When you keep asking the question of "why" and you find no answers, don't give up. Keep turning over the rocks until you find the one that fits in place. It may be a long road, but the right answer will show up when you're least expecting it.
Keep going when the pains in life are too much to bear. When the pain becomes so intense that you just want to scream and yet it feels like the screams do very little. The pain may be strong, but it too will pass and you will find calmer waters ahead.
Keep going when you feel weary and bruised to the bone. When it feels like you will not be able to rise to see another day, don't give up. Don't give up! Keep going because there is a good chance, that what you so badly need is right there ready to make its acquaintance.
Keep going because with all things in life, there is a season. In all things, whatever we are facing will fade away. This too shall pass.
Even though it feels like there is no end in sight, I will promise you that if you keep going, you will find your way through this in whatever form that you need to take. If you give up, you will miss out on this most important morsel of life that is waiting to be discovered, created, and one with your life.
