Recovery: What Keeps Me Strong

Here on my blog, I always try to display positivity, optimism, hope, and strength. There are a number of other messages I try to get across too, but those are the four that I focus on the most. During the recovery process, I really do think that strength is the most important aspect. If you don't have any strength, then how are you expected to pull through the trauma? You would find it near enough impossible!
In today's post, I'm going to be sharing some of the things that keep me strong, and that will hopefully inspire, or motivate you to become stronger as an individual too.
1. My loved ones. Whilst I was going through some of my toughest battles, I often attempted to seek support through other people that were closest to me. It was difficult, I'm not going to lie to you, but there are always people who care. I know I'm just another person, sitting behind a computer screen, but I'm still a human, just like you! I have gone through terrible suffering in the past, and now I truly believe that I'm a stronger, happier person, because of it. Opening up to people you love can honestly help to change your mind set and enable you to cope a little more, knowing that someone is with you on the journey. There are always people willing to listen, and you should try to open up to those closest to you when you are really struggling. You will be surprised at what it can do. You have to keep trying, and you will then get support. I have a selection of friends and family that I know will always lift my spirits, and listen to my problems, and if you look a little closer, you will find your selection too.
2. Hope for the future. Holding onto hope is another incredibly important aspect of the recovery journey. I find that it's a really nice idea if you think of your future, and what you would like to achieve during your lifetime. Think about your dreams, ambitions, wishes. I would like to travel the world, graduate from university, find a career that I genuinely enjoy and earn a decent amount of money from, get married, and then start a family etc. Your dreams could be anything. Make a list of everything that you want to do in your life, whether it be big or small. Then think of all the reasons that you are alive. Your loved ones, helping others, enjoying your passions, making people happy, and so on. It may take you a little while to think, but you must dig deep into your brain, as you will come up with more suggestions than you initially imagined. It's all about positivity and hope!!
3. Helping other people. I know this may sound like a cliché, but honestly, one of the main reasons that I feel I am in this world is so that I can help others. Of course, I am alive for other reasons too, but I feel that my biggest passion is to help, and inspire others. To know that I can make just one person smile every day is such an honour to me. I want to change the world, and I try my best each day to make others happy, and inspire them in someway. We are all alive, and breathing for a reason. You may not know your particular reason as to why you are alive, but believe me, no matter who you are, no matter what your background, and no matter what your story, you are alive for a reason, and I am going to try my very best to help each and every one of you realise the reason that is unique to you. I love you all with every piece of me, and I know that you can get through anything in this world.
Lots of love,
