I think there is a misconception about the “struggle” and what it really entails.In this day of social media we share everything from what was for breakfast to the exact minute we went to sleep. So it’s only natural to share our struggles too.Here is where I get mixed up though and maybe you feel the same.Why does it seem that no one is really struggling. I’m looking at the highlight reels of struggle.I understand fully that there are levels to struggle but I’m tired of the fake story lines of misrepresented struggle. I can’t be the only one going through it at times.
I want to talk to the people with the real struggle . The nothing cute about it struggle. Its lonely and confusing most times. It’s doing all the work and not seeing any of the fruits of your labor. Its pushing past your pain point and you want to cry; but nobody cares so you suck it up and keep going. You learn new skills only to discover it’s outdated and completely unnecessary . When everything cost but funds are slow dripping into your account.
I want you to know you are not alone in this. Through struggle there is triumph . I am learning more than ever who I am. That knowing and doing is two completely different animals. That your mindset is the biggest battle and there is success in failure. Do the work and strangely you will find joy in the struggle of success that will inevitable come.
How much sweeter will it be because nothing was handed to you. You earned every bit of it.
