My life has taught me that mental awareness of yourself is very important, your mind can be a dangerous weapon that you can turn on yourself. If you keep thinking you can’t, then you never will. God created the body a strong vessel some tougher than others, but it’s important to have faith not only in The Lord but in oneself; the faith to know its going to be alright and you would be surprised when you push yourself just a little bit more each day how far you can go. Pain can break you down extremely and along with depression it can cause you to beat up on yourself. But there comes a time when you must face the pain head on, look in the mirror and say, it doesn’t have you. Now it’s not easy and there will always be days that you feel like giving up but what’s important is that you know how to pick ourself back up. Know that without sadness we would not know what happiness feels like. Healing must start with yourself, in your heart and mind before anything else can help you, and believing in God will give you a joy everyday that is unexplainable. If you don’t fight the devil will win every time. Why sit around thinking every negative thought there is to man, feeling down on yourself. You can still find happiness through the cloudiest of days, through the toughest storms, you have to just allow yourself to be happy. I know it’s easier said than done, believe me I know but it can be done. Even if you have to think back on happier times just to get out as much as a giggle maybe also a smile. We have a life to live no matter what, we must live it because we will die some day but it’s not today. Why live dead than alive.
