If you are about to give up, please READ THIS, because you are not the only one with challenges.
The journey of life is a mixture of both good and bad, however, sometimes the good exceeds the bad or the reverse. More often than not when we are faced with problems, we tend to think that we are the only one going through different issues.
After our graduation in 2015, my friend (Douglas) and I embarked on a job-hunting journey with hopes of finding jobs soon that would transform our lives. This move, unfortunately, left us hopeless and cursing why we did journalism because luck wasn’t on our side. All the offices we went to, we were welcomed with bad news.
But while we were crying, some of our colleagues were able to secure different jobs. This even broke us down the more.
One day I met a friend of ours who had been lucky enough to land himself a job at one of the media houses in the country. Our two hours conversation left me a stronger man. He explained the hurdles he was going through while at this job and that he was planning to quit soon.
This, therefore, brought me to a conclusion that almost everyone around us is somehow fighting a battle that we sometimes can’t see. The only difference is that some people are good at hiding their battles better than others, but everyone around you is battling the same kinds of things. Also, some people fight better than others. But the critical point is you are not alone in that situation.
One person is busy looking for ten million shillings to solve his problems while another is looking for only five hundred thousand shillings to have his problems solved. One person is looking for food to feed his family while another is struggling with appetite issues that they can’t even eat what is available.
I know life sucks for you right now because a lot is happening around you. You've looked left and right, and there seems no answer. My only advice is to try to be your own hero. At all cost, you must find your inner champion. And if you can’t find one, begin to create one in you because no one will.
Regardless of your religious background, always remind yourself how awesome, unique and extraordinary you are not just in your eyes but in the eyes of your creator. It’s not time to cry but to appreciate yourself the more.
Think good of yourself always because that's how best you will overcome your challenges.
