When the going gets tough…

“Never confuse a single defeat with a final defeat.”
― F. Scott Fitzgerald

This quote. It’s everything. We’re only human. We make mistakes. We believe rock bottom is all we have left. But you know the saying “when one door closes, another one opens”, sometimes it doesn’t feel that way at all. It feels like it’s the end. There is no way out. No little glimmer of light. We feel trapped. It’s normal to feel this way. Sometimes we get ourselves out of it, or sometimes someone makes us realize it. Sometimes quotes, a song, a memory or a past experience is what gets us out of that terrible situation. So I decided to share some of my favourite quotes with you. I figured we all have things that are causing us some form of frustration or hurt. The thing about quotes or a certain lyric is that it is written in a way that can take make interpretations and give advice in so many ways depending on what our personal situation is.

“Don’t let yourself feel worthless: often through life you will really be at your worst when you seem to think best of yourself; and don’t worry about losing your “personality,” as you persist in calling it: at fifteen you had the radiance of early morning, at twenty you will begin to have the melancholy brilliance of the moon, and when you are my age you will give out, as I do, the genial golden warmth of 4 p.m.”
― F. Scott Fitzgerald, This Side of Paradise

Pain is inevitable. Suffering is optional. ~M. Kathleen Casey

If you don’t like something change it; if you can’t change it, change the way you think about it. ~Mary Engelbreit

“There’s a loneliness that only exists in one’s mind. The loneliest moment in someone’s life is when they are watching their whole world fall apart, and all they can do is blink.”
― F. Scott Fitzgerald

“The world only exists in your eyes. You can make it as big or as small as you want”
― F. Scott Fitzgerald

“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.”
― Eleanor Roosevelt, This is My Story

“Never allow a person to tell you no who doesn’t have the power to say
yes.”
― Eleanor Roosevelt
