To my friends going through a difficult time

 

No matter how many times you go back to the past, it will never change.

This difficult time is temporary. Nothing in this world is permanent. Whatever you’re going through right now won’t last. It may seem like you’re facing endless problems in your life, but trust me, it will never be for long. Take them as challenges, as motivations, to do better and to push yourself to overcome these difficult times.

You are not alone. I am here. I will always be here. If you ever need someone to vent out to or when you feel like nobody is willing to listen, I may be a hundred or thousand miles away, but you still got me. I will listen without judgment. I may not be able to take away your pain, but letting it all out may help you.

Stop blaming yourself or anyone else. We’re humans. We all make mistakes and we can always learn from them. No matter how many times you go back to the past, it will never change. Live in the present. Do whatever you can do today to improve your future. Change your mindset and focus more on solutions.

Don’t be too hard on yourself. Give yourself some credit. You’ve gone through hard times before and have always come out stronger and better. I’ve witnessed some of your losses and struggles. But I’ve also seen your victories. I will always be proud of you. Be proud of yourself, too.

But remember this…

No matter how many times you ask for my advice, it will not help you as much. You know what’s best for you. It’s always your decision to help yourself. And no matter what you decide, I’ll be there to support you.

So, my friend, cry when you must, but never forget to chin up, breathe and face each day as a new beginning.

Through thick and thin,
Shen
