“Why do we fall? So we can learn to pick ourselves back up.”
Since childhood, we are served with stories about superheroes and fairies and we assume some day some superhero or fairy will come to save us, will come to help us fight problems in our life.
But eventually, as we grow we realize more and more that no one is coming to save us, at the end of the day we are left with our own selves and we fight every battle alone.
Often when life is testing us very hard we feel we won’t be able to get through this, we all face some phases in our lives where we feel this can’t be true, this cannot happen to me, or why me all the time?
“You’re much stronger than you think you are. Trust me.” – Spiderman
But today, if we look back at all those moments when we were all alone and we’re going through so much in life, even when there were people to encourage us, who have been there with us still felt like no one is there, we are all alone and we have to face all the miseries alone? All those harsh moments, all those miseries, every time you fought your battle alone you came out as a different person, you came out as a stronger person that you were yesterday. You matured and became more sympathetic towards people.
So today I take this opportunity to write a small letter to whomsoever you are reading this;
I am aware that you have been through a lot and maybe you are still going through a lot. But who said life is ever going to be easy? Who said, this world is a better place to live? No, life is never going to be easy and this world is the messiest place to live. But you, you are stronger than you think you are and you are a beautiful person in and out. Remember, you are your own superhero, you have to save yourself, you have to first accept and love yourself, you have to respect yourself, you have to forgive yourself. And see how things start changing, how even after being in a mess you will realize that you are easily sailing through the storm because by accepting that it’s me who is going to save myself, it is me who is going to fight for myself, it is me who is going to love, respect and accept myself the way I am, all these affirmations will block all the negativity and you will be able to fight some hardest battles.
“You only have your thoughts and dreams ahead of you. You are someone. You mean something.” – Batman
It won’t be easy, this needs practice, this is a real struggle I know, but remember, if you can’t save yourself, if you can’t fight for yourself, if you can’t work hard for your own self, no one else will. If you won’t love, accept and respect yourself, no one else will. And once you learn the aspects of self-love you will realize even when no one is standing by your side you still have the courage and strength to fight back and stand strong. You don’t need people to save you, to help you, to make you feel worthy. You are enough…
You are enough.
Always stay your own super hero…
