WHEN LIFE GIVES YOU LEMONS…
F**k making lemonade
Do whatever you need to…
Cry, scream, howl, break down, throw a super tantrum if it feels right…
Your lemons, your reaction – your way.
You see, none of us escape showers of s**t storms in this life, we all get our share. It is an undeniable truth, like death and taxes.
Doesn’t matter if you read all of the inspirational quotes in the world; when your lemons come along, it stings. It hurts. It feels unfair. It feels like you’re never going to get through it.
Deal with it however you like – no judgement here… (if someone is judging you on your coping mechanisms, walk away, you don’t need that in your life).
Scream, shout, go to bed for a day, break things, wallow in your own sympathy, whatever you need…
But the one thing you must absolutely not do, under any circumstances, is give up hope.
Hope has saved lives since the dawn of time itself.
Hope can move mountains, endure the unendurable and break down walls built to last.
Hope is the magic of humanity.
It is what separates us from the animals.
It is sometimes all you have, cling to it. And when you feel your hope running out, tie a knot in it and hold on tight.
It will be okay.
This too shall pass.
When life gives you lemons my friend, it is okay to throw them against a wall in anger.
Just never give up hope.
