If you’re going through Hell…

Life’s hard. And at the end of the day it’s crucial we all remember one simple fact: no one has a perfect life. I think we all tend to forget that little tidbit because of what we see on social media.

Social is the best parts of our lives, filtered in more ways than one.

While we shouldn’t spill our trauma on people, to a degree we should be transparent in saying “Hey, my life’s a little messy right now – but that’s okay.”

Perfection is a myth and madness (to a degree) is beauty.

Embrace the imperfections.

And if you’re going through Hell, keep going. I promise you will come out on top. Hard moments suck. So much. But they really do shape us and make us grateful for the good.

If you’re going through a hard time, don’t pass that burden on others.

Hurt people, hurt people. And if you’re not careful you will bleed on people that never cut you.

At the end of the day, take care of yourself.

And follow some simple rules:

  • Leave people better than you found them
  • Hug and hood tightly to the hurt people. That bug could be the only form of love they get.
  • Befriend the lonely
  • Love the lost
  • Have Grace

At the end of the day, if it feels like nothing is going right or feels perfect for you, remember one final thing: Not all storms are to disrupt your life. Some are to clear a path and show you what you no longer need.
