WHEN YOU LOSE EVERYTHING, ALL YOU HAVE LEFT IS FAITH
Even though we have all lost so much throughout our lives, I don't think we will ever get used to the feeling that loss brings. The loss of a loved one, the loss of a job, the loss of an opportunity, the loss of a relationship, all can lead you spiraling into the abyss of depression. Sometimes we feel so bad that we foolishly say that we have nothing left to lose. But there is always more that you can lose. But there is an upside. There is a silver lining. No matter how much you feel like your gas has run out, you always have something left in the tank. That is where a positive attitude comes into play. It pays to be optimistic. It pays to have faith. Especially during those times when you feel like you have lost everything. During those hard times the only thing you have left is your faith. Faith that things are going to get better. Faith that you will make it through your hard times. Faith that you weren't created to constantly struggle for the rest of your life. Faith will take you a long way. Having Faith in God, faith in yourself, and faith in others will help ease the anxiety that the heartaches of a difficult life can bring. Having faith doesn't mean that you won't ever feel depressed. It doesn't mean that you won't feel stressed and mentally and emotionally depleted. But it does mean that you know that without a doubt you will be able to make it! It means you will deal with the worst as it comes, but you are always looking forward to the best. Never lose faith. Never give in to the negativity!
