Someday your pain will show you your light.
It will show you the art you could produce, it will shape you into someone you never thought you’d be, it will bring you closer to God, to your family, to your friends or to a loved one you took for granted. Someday your pain will be the reason why you learned to be a better friend, a better parent, a better son, a better daughter, a better wife or a better husband.
Someday your pain will be the reason why you fought for your happiness, fought for a better life, fought for answers, for closure and asked for things you would have never asked for if you weren’t hurting.
Someday your pain will be the reason why you don’t fear pain anymore.
When you know you’ve been through the worst and still survived, when you got by even though you had nothing, when you endured agony at your weakest, heartbreak when you were already broken, loss when you had no one else and disappointment when you were only full of hope.
Someday your pain will make sense.
You will look back and know why things had to happen the way they did, you will find people who went through the same things even though you thought you were alone. You will share your painful stories and it will help others heal. You will heal yourself by finding the remedy in people, in your passion, in God or in love.
Someday you will be thankful for your pain because it showed you a better life, it made you a better person, it pushed you into the arms of more compassionate people and it humbled you.
Someday pain will be the reason why life won’t scare you anymore. You’ll know for sure that you have what it takes to rise up no matter how many times you hit rock bottom.
