We all know disappointments from time to time. The raise you were counting on turned into a lay off. The relationship you worked so hard for didn’t turn out the way you hoped. Certain people are eager to let you know when you have let them down. With all of life’s ups and downs, sometimes it’s tempting to focus on the disappointments.
Even though you may be feeling like life isn’t so great right now, here are some reminders that you are doing well in life. These signs prove it, even when it’s not always apparent to you.
You are loved
Love is something we give and receive. Sometimes, people will dwell on the love they do not get in return. Even if you’re not in a romantic relationship, you have your family and friends by your side. There are people in your life that love you no matter what. Recognize the love that is all around you!
You’re working toward a goal
If you haven’t yet achieved your goals, it doesn’t mean that you won’t. Even if you feel small or down, know that you are capable of so much more and that where you are now is not the end.
The fact that you have dreams and you’re putting in effort to achieve them indicates just how good your life is going. Never give up on your dreams, even if people tell you they’re impossible to achieve.
You’re not the same person you were a year ago
You may have even known a faliure or two in the past, but all the trials and tribulations you’ve faced in your life have given you the strength and wisdom you have today. Life’s obstacles have made you a stronger and a better person. You have grown and you will continue to grow.
You know how to take care of yourself
You know to make good choices when it comes to your health and wellbeing. You know to ask for help or support when you need it. You recognize that everything you choose to do impacts how you live. You value your independence and take responsibility for yourself. You know to focus on the full picture and see all that there is to see.
