a short word: on tough times

You don’t have to smile.

You neither necessarily have to understand.

Do have some trust, however. Have faith in something… anything, that whatever is happening is to your own benefit. And remember that it was more likely the tough times that formed the man or woman you are today, rather than the easy ones.

Pain is part of who you are, and who you will become.

Embrace it. Allow yourself to feel it. And keep in mind you’re only human.

In the end, this is just a shadow; a passing thing. Eventually, even darkness must pass. And as our beloved Samwise Gamgee below says: when the sun shines, it will shine out the clearer.

Carry on!

As a survivor, you’ll have a story to tell us all. A story that really matters!
