After so many years of struggling with negative feelings and seeing no relief, your emotions begin spiraling and you feel that you’re losing it – stop right there.
The despair that you’re experiencing, is only because you can’t make sense of all the bitterness and depression that you’ve suffered until now – it just seems so pointless.
But it’s not! Your struggle in life is not in vain. All human pain and suffering has very deep and hidden Divine purpose and meaning – but you have to have the patience to “wait and see”, without falling apart.
Stop focusing on giving up, and start working on patience by repeating this phrase when you feel the despair creeping up on you, “This too shall pass!”
