Are you feeling like you’ve hit rock bottom? I know the feeling. During the Spring of 2016 I hit rock bottom. Rock bottom feels dramatic and hard to describe/imagine until you are there, in the moment. It was during this time that my anxiety came out of nowhere and hit me, sending me into a downward spiral. It was all-encompassing, scary and truly changed my life. The events that followed included me going on leave from my job as basic day to day activities were more than I could imagine.
I remember during this time I turned to the internet, specifically Pinterest for anything to make me feel like I wasn’t alone. I have always been someone who turns to quotes for comfort as shown by my multiple posts with quotes about anxiety, depression, self-care, chronic illness, mental health, success and following your dreams.
While the quotes I found didn’t solve my problems, they did give me a shred of hope when I needed it most. It is my hope that some of the quotes that gave me strength during my time of need will do the same for you as well. It has been an uphill battle but each day is better than the last (with some setbacks of course). Things really will get better even if it doesn’t feel like it right now.
Since you landed on this post I imagine you are going through a particularly hard time right now. I am sorry for everything you are going through but so happy that you are fighting and looking for hope and inspiration! You’ve got this, you’re a fighter, tomorrow will be a better day!
