When you’re in the eye of a storm it is hard to see how bad things can lead to good, but there is always a silver lining you can focus on, however small it may be.
For me, growing up with my Mum being ill a lot and now needing full time care has often seemed at times that there was a consistent bad energy surrounding me and my family. But as I look back on it now, if I hadn’t overcome those adversities than I wouldn’t appreciate my family as much as I do. I may not have worked so hard so that I don’t end up in similar position to my parents and Mum health-wise. I feel that I can put things into perspective better than some others my age, because of being able to step back and compare.
Nobody knows the future and optimism is hard, but overcoming hardships is beneficial to how you tackle life situations. Just keep living.
