No one is immune to depression, we all go through life at one point or another feeling as though we can never catch a break. We look to the sky for answers, asking “why is this happening?”, “why am I your target?” “Everything seems to be so good for everyone else while I’m so close to the edge of giving up”. Well let me tell you something, life will throw that curve at you once and a while. It is not a matter of if, but when. Each path that you choose to take will never be a straight one. You will hit roadblocks. When your at that point, don’t give up because your breakthrough will be right over that hurdle. Show life what you’re made of and then you will become blessed. Here are 7 Uplifting quotes that have helped me, in the dark nights of my soul #blessings 🌞

1.”A pearl is a beautiful thing that is produced by an injured life. It is the tear [that results] from the injury of the oyster. The treasure of our being in this world is also produced by an injured life. If we had not been wounded, if we had not been injured, then we will not produce the pearl.” -Stephan Hoeller

You are going to be knocked down a few times in life, but that’s the beauty of living, if life were easy then would it really be worth it? it can take up to 20 years for an oyster to produce a pearl after being injured from living in a daunting sea. beautiful things happen as a result of going through a struggle embrace it and know that in time it will pass.🙌🏾🙏🏾

2.”The struggle that your in today is developing the strength you will need for tomorrow ” -unknown

you may look at your situation and hate your circumstances now, you may feel as though your falling and today is kicking you so deep into the dirt that getting up seems impossible and you just want to lay there; a wise man said to me “if you fall on your back and you can look up, then get up” So get up, dust your self off, and fight back! in the end, you’ll look back and see that it was well worth it.💪🏾❤

3.”when everything seems to be going against you, remember that the airplane takes off against the wind, not with it” -Henry Ford

So fight and continue to do so. I’m not saying it’s going to be easy because then I would be lying to you, there may be people in your life that are so negative about you your goals and your ambitions. Rid yourself of things and people that aren’t working for you find the ones who will support you no matter what your dreams are. Those are going to be the people to pick you up when your down if someone tells you “you cant” tell them this one thing ” I’ll show you!” then get to work and fly.✈❤

4.” when God pushes you to the edge of difficulty, trust in him fully because two things can happen either he will catch you when you fall or he’ll show you how to fly” -unknown

And that he will. No matter your troubles God will never put anything in your path that he feels is too much for you to handle. Trust that that God has a plan and if you trust in him to guide you through it, miracles can happen. Patience is key and it may not happen when you want it to but it will happen when you need it to. Amen. 🙏🏾

5.” when the world seems to have lost all color go into silence ask what it is you need to know and emerge changed” -Alison Stormwolf

Go into a room, by yourself for at least few minutes. lay down and close your eyes or have a seat and do the same. Breath. Now go inside your head and question yourself. what can I change? what is the purpose for my life? what can I do better to feel better? what can I release so I can continue to move forward? etc.. the question that I always asked my self-months ago was.. “why am I here”? I still receive those answers today and my life has forever been changed. seek the answers to your questions after you have asked you will be surprised what is revealed ❤❤

6.”Its okay not to be okay, as long as your not giving up” -Karen Salmansohn

Never give up. someone out there is depending on you whether you like to realize it or not. Your actions good or bad will affect the people around you. You don’t have to be okay, but when you finally complete something that you thought you could not, few forces can stand against someone like that and that includes depression.

7.”Once you choose hope, anything is possible.” – Christopher Reeve

Number 7 resonates with me the most. all it takes is that glimmer of hope combined with drive and passion. I really believe that no matter what life throws at you-you can overcome anything if you put your mind to it remember, life happens through you, not to you -Kinglee
