As I was scrolling through Instagram I came upon the following post:
“Courage doesn’t always roar.”
I just felt that I needed to address this, because even though this quote is so relevant I know that people out there make assumptions. I mean, in a world like the one we live in now its hard not to.
However, I am so sick and tired of people thinking that others are weak just because they aren’t vocal about the times that they overcame certain situations.
For me personally I think the bravest thing you can do is choose to press on; to live another day; to try one more time. And this doesn’t necessarily mean parading around telling everyone you know about how you “beat the odds” and “overcame the impossible” either. I mean if that works for you I am in no place to judge (as I am usually one of those people), but what about the introverts? The strong, silent types that have their own internal struggles and daily conflicts.
Where is their recognition?
Where is the pat on the back that only the “loud ones” get, but all deserve?
So without further ado…
I’d like to give a little shoutout to the quiet ones out there. The ones who have battles raging on inside them that no one knows of. The ones who have thought about just ending it all but still choose to press on.
I want you to know I love you (even if I don’t know you), I’m so proud of you, and YOU GOT THIS.
Oh! And one more thing. If you are feeling alone, lost, or that nobody would ever care about your situation I promise you this: God does. He will be there for you more than anyone in this world ever could.
He won’t give you more than you can handle in this life but you won’t be able to handle it alone. So hold on to him through it all.
“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9
