As you will most likely know, all too well-hitting rock bottom is not easy and something we’d all like to avoid. Yet, often it can creep up on us, or we have to make a choice we don’t want to as we feel we might lose it all. Yet, in an abusive relationship, we’ve already lost so much, the fear of the pain, the loneliness, feeling humiliated can keep us trapped with those people we should not be with, when our comfort zone is uncomfortable, its time to face our fear step out of our uncomfortable zone and find ourselves.
It’s incredibly hard and a difficult journey to go through, but sometimes when you’ve tried your best, so much so, you’ve lost who you are. They just keep walking all over you or out on you. There becomes a time when you’re so sick and tired of being sick and tired that you already are at rock bottom even if you don’t realise it.
Then you have a choice to stay down where you are or get up and move on, it’s incredibly hard at first, yet once you choose to leave, the choice is easy, doing it is the hard part, or if they’ve left you, and you know you can never go back, and you must move on. Hitting rock bottom is the start of moving on to brighter things. Sometimes in life, we have to make the hard choices to make life easier for us.
Rock bottom can give you the hunger, the incentive, the drive and the inspiration to get up and go again in a new direction and make life what you want it to be. You have to rise again, and you have to see the process you will go through. You have to gain new perspectives, new visions, new hopes, and new dreams.
You will find your inner strength again and become stronger than you ever were before, keep believing in yourself, keep striving for a better you and a better life, keep climbing back up if you miss a couple of steps one day, reevaluate and then go the next day again.
Rock bottom is the foundation for you to build upon for better things to come
Rock bottom teaches you things that mountain tops never will.
Rock bottom teaches you the inner strength you never knew you had.
Never give up; instead, rise up, and keep going until you get to where you want to be.
