Life can seem overwhelming at times. We may wonder why people face perilous times, suffer unjustly, and get treated unfairly. It can be easy to get discouraged, disappointed, and dismayed, and we may begin to question why we should even try to be positive when, sometimes, it doesn’t appear to matter. When everything is going well in our lives, it is not difficult to be cheerful and uplifting, but, it requires significant effort to stay positive in the face of adversity. Yet, these are the moments that will set us apart, that will help us to truly shine, and that will create lasting impacts for others. Every day, we are living our legacies and the way we react when we are travailing through the hurdles of life will help define who we are. It is, therefore, crucial that we remain optimistic about the differences that we can make and remember to draw strength from being true to ourselves. When we discover who we are, learn from our strengths and weaknesses, have the confidence to face our fears, accept ourselves, and learn to love ourselves, we can live life genuinely. We should seek to not only learn more about ourselves but also to share ourselves with others and encourage others to do the same. This helps contribute to both positive growth within our society and the legacies we are remembered for.
