You never know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have. ~Bob Marley
Being in dark times, losing loved ones, depression, whatever life throws your way, is a struggle. Many of us have been there. It is during all of these hard times that you regain your strength, your courage and the will to live again. A much stronger person because of what has happened.
As long as you take it a step at a time, or a day at a time, keep moving forward and you will eventually start to see the light again. Always remember, no matter what you are going through, this too shall pass.

Nice quote, dear Carol … I stick to the principle that everything goes away once again … the difference is that beautiful things go faster
Thanks Lado, it is a favorite of mine.
The path from darkness is the hardest one to travel. By nature, humans seek the light. But the darkness sometimes holds us. Breaking free and finding a path our, means we have to share that path with others and help them along the way!
I agree with every word. I was held down for a long time by the darkness. Almost too long, I started feeling comfortable there. Not a good place to be. And now I try to help anyone I can. Thanks for these words!
i have read your words where you help and guide others. you truly live by the credo, lead others from the darkness
It seems to come natural to want to help others. I feel it is all I can do now.
Absolutely, I believe we never know our strengths until they are put to test.
I agree Dawn, many have told me I am strong and I never saw myself as being strong.
This is a great encouragement and thanks so much . I have found this has happened to me very recently.
You are so welcome Pam. It really helps me, so I wanted to share. I hope you are better now. Message me any time. I can listen if nothing else.
Taking one day at a time is how I live every day. I am a fighter like a lion. I have a lot of reasons to keep on fighting, so I will carry on.
Same here my friend. I have taken many days one step at a time. You have a lot to fight for. Glad to hear you are moving forward.
Message any time you need to talk, you know that. Hugs.
He was truly a lion among men
Indeed he was. Died way too soon.
Died? He was assassinated to silence his message
I know, I just mean he was gone too young. Very sad situation.
just the man trying to keep us down
That is a great quote and it really applied to the day I found out my soul mate had passed away. There I was with the news, alone in an old creaking house, and with the knowledge, he was never coming back. There was no choice for me I had to be strong because falling completely apart I knew was not the answer
I know what you are saying. We had two choices. And we are both survivors my friend. 🙂
Feel free to message me any time if you need to talk. I know you have been though a lot I can relate to. Hugs to you.
Winston Churchill put it slightly differently as: “If you find you are going through Hell, keep going”.
I like that one as well, great meaning. Very powerful.
I agree with you. I know this from my own experience.
I know you do. I keep this one closeby.
I hope things are going well for you my friend.
That’s a great message!
I have it close to my computer and read it often.
