Life can be difficult at times

“The thing about life is that you must survive. Life is going to be difficult, and dreadful things will happen. What you do is move along, get on with it, and be tough. Not in the sense of being mean to others, but being tough with yourself and making a deadly effort not to be defeated.” ~ Katharine Hepburn

I find being compassionately loving towards myself now that the storms are over is a definite must. I do this by forgiving and loving myself and others and by coming to a full understanding that my struggles made me who I am today and I have gained so much insight and wisdom. But during my most difficult turbulent times, I had to be tough on myself and dig deep into my well of self severe battle, because I wouldn’t of survived. I wouldn’t be here today, alive. ~ Brigitte Nicole
