To say the least, things in my life have been crazy. It seems like every time things start to look up, something crappy happens again. But, every time that something difficult happens, I think it helps me learn that I can get through anything. I believe that no mater how bad life gets, things will get better. I have definitely learned this through personal experience.
Sometimes, things seem to be going really great in my life, and then everything bad just happens all at once. Not everything that happens is completely terrible; sometimes, I just have a really bad day, and nothing seems to go right. One time, I was having a really bad day that I just wanted to end. One bad day, I was talking to a friend, and she helped me realize that even though that was bad, not every day is. I think that talking things out with my friends has helped me deal with a lot of hard situations, and I am so glad I have such great friends.
I would say that I have had a pretty good life so far; despite having some really difficult things happen. There has been some times where I seriously just wanted to give up. The absolutely hardest thing I have ever had to deal with in my life was my mom passing away. I didn’t know what to do, I had no idea. I didn’t think that I would ever make it through, but somehow, I’ve been able to deal with it, and slowly, things are getting a little easier. I’ve learned though, that I can make it through anything with prayer, and family and friends.
These are only a couple examples of how I have learned, and truly believe, that sometimes, life just sucks, but I will make it through. I know that life is always going to be crazy from time to time, and that I’m not always going to like what happens. Even though sometimes life can be really bad, and it seems impossible for things to ever be better, some days can also be really great, and I can feel like I am on top of the world. I know now that no matter how bad things get, I just have to take it one step at a time, and things will get better. Life is unpredictable, some days are good, and others are bad, but I’ll make it through everything, so I might as well just sit back and enjoy the ride.
