“You have survived 100% of your worst days.”
Reflecting on positivity, I want to provide a different perspective. Life can be hard at times. Unexpected challenges and circumstances can place demands on you that make life less enjoyable. No matter how positive of an outlook you try to have, sometimes you just can’t see the bright side of things. I get it, it's me too at times, nobody is perfectly happy all the time. We’re only human and in fact, difficult experiences are necessary to give meaning to the more positive ones.
But no matter what you’re facing off with now, or what challenges you’ve encountered in the past, one thing remains true - You have survived 100% of your worst days. I’ll take those odds! And the reason I share that is because it suggests something larger about life.
The despair, disappointment, and heartbreak of life’s challenges will all be a matter of the past at one point. Just like every time before, you will find yourself on the other side. This means that whatever it is you went through, you figured it out. You took what was available to you and worked through it. Could you have done better and could things have gone differently? Of course. But that will always be the case. What is undeniable is that you make it out okay each and every time.
While this might not be a positive message, it is an optimistic one. Optimism is simply a belief that the future will be better, and thinking about both of our life's experience, the worst time always got better. Yes, life can be unfair, and I don’t want to discredit the pain you might be going through, but you’ve gotten through tough times before and you’ll do it again!
