No one’s going to save you

You can wait your entire life for someone to step in and save the day and never be saved!

Life is hard. 

But waiting for someone to make life easy or easier will ultimately make it harder. When we wait for someone to pick us up from the floor, we give them a choice to kick us when we’re down or help us back on our feet. Depending on your life experiences, your mind will gravitate to either one.

Due to my lack of trust, I automatically assume you’ll kick me first if I ask for help and then watch me slowly pick myself up. I’m not mad about that; I found my power because of my past.

The Floor Isn’t The Bottom

There you are on the floor, feeling empty, broken, and alone. You might be facing problem after problem and waiting for someone to extend their hand, but that hand never appears before you.

What are your options now?

You can’t just lay there and expect life to get better. The longer you lay there, the more you’ll see the floor wasn’t the bottom. The floor was the top or the beginning of your end. When you lay there, you begin to tell yourself, “I am as weak as they said I was,” Those demons in your head will get louder and louder. Soon they will prevent you from hearing anything that makes sense.

If you are on the floor right now, know that you aren’t alone. Today you are surrounded by millions of others trying to figure out how to get up. Unfortunately, the devil is busy trying to cloud your positive ways of getting up with reasons why you deserve to stay right on the floor.

But today is not his day! Convince yourself that you are worthy of change; you can depend on yourself. 

You are strong enough

You are capable

You are a force

You are not broken

You can never break

You are your savior

There isn’t a story better than the story of someone that saved themselves. We can’t wait to hear your story!

You could have chosen any blog to read, but you chose mine, and I’m honored!

  1. I needed this message today. Thank you Bella. Sometimes we just need to be reminded that we are worthy of love, that we don’t need to react to everything someone dumps on us, that we are driving our own ship and we can steer it in another direction. Toot, toot ~ get out of my way! Hugs, C

  2. Fantastic uplifting post my friend !
    It’s the “sling shot theory” – the further back you are pushed or down you go – the farther forward you will fly or up you will rise ❤️❤️

  3. Right on! 💪🏻 We are meant to live abundantly and experience joy. 💖 That isn’t possible if we don’t take responsibility for our life, and our emotions.

  4. Belladonna, I do agree that positive thinking can and does go a long way in helping us to get up again after a fall. However, from my own experience of brokenness after my husband abandoned me and our two sons in Brazil, I found that in acknowledging and facing my brokenness head on, I was better able to get up and move forward with my life. I also discovered that there were many people around me, even strangers, who were ready to lend a steadying hand.

    1. Those people are heaven sent and a true blessing to you and your boys. I love when God sends us people to pick up our broken pieces.
      I’m so happy he sent them your way.
      Your comment made me think back to several times in my life when I needed someone to help me up it was a stranger. Oddly I’ve never seen those people again. But they were there when I needed someone the most.
