Never be ashamed of your struggle.
We live in a fast world, and every “good moment” is shared at warp speed on social media. However, oddly hardly anyone will post their struggle, and I AM HERE FOR A FREAKIN STRUGGLE STORY!
I mean, let’s get real, I know that everyone that’s a part of social media land has a struggle or two or three or a thousand. All I ask is for you to show them and stop being ashamed of your struggles. They are born to make us stronger and better equipped to handle life.
I’m blessed to be a part of the fitness world, and I talk about health every day. I constantly think about how I can improve my health as well as others. Every day I challenge myself to be better than the day before, and I fall short more often than I succeed!
A massive part of my successful days are due to the days I struggled, and I love that. I embrace my not-so-good moments, and I own them.
Things We Can Learn From Struggles
We grow when we become honest with ourselves. There is absolutely no way to become better, stronger, and more capable of succeeding if we don’t first take a good look at who we are. I know the thought of being truthful with yourself is scary. No one wants to face that unfiltered side of ourselves. But at some point, we have to strip down everything that we’re hiding behind, and show our truth.
It’s hard to admit that sometimes we deal with issues that cause us to over or under-eat. It’s challenging to look at yourself in the mirror and see the person getting in your way. All because you’re ashamed of something that everyone experiences…… STRUGGLES.
It doesn’t matter what your struggle is. A struggle is a struggle…PERIOD!
You’ll stop being ashamed you can admit that;
- You’re not perfect
- You’re consistently inconsistent
- You like snacks
- Doing squats aren’t your favorite thing to do
- Daily pep talks are occurring less and less
- You’re ashamed to FAIL AGAIN
However, when you can be honest with yourself, you’ll slowly begin to reach the goals you set. But you have to be direct and embrace what you are going through right now.
No one is sitting alone on the struggle bus. That thing is fully loaded, but everyone is wearing a mask. Take that thing off… wait, keep it on because of Covid. Stand six feet away, take the mask off, and brag about your struggles. Everything that you share and expose can help not only you but someone else.
People need people. We improve through the power of our own struggles as well as others. If we keep that fear of exposing ourselves locked up inside, we will remain exactly where we are currently.
Embrace your past struggles
Embrace your current struggles
Embrace your future struggles
Don’t be ashamed of them; because the beautiful thing is they make us stronger.
