"Why does it have to feel this hard?"
I used to ask myself this question multiple times and I figured out that if it was easy we wouldn't be worthy of proclaiming it as ours. It has to hurt and it has to be hard now, so that someday when you will look back and see the change that the struggles has made in your life and the goals attained. I realised that the hardships of life are only temporary but the regrets of giving up are a lifetime. The hard times are only the building blocks of what is going to be the greatest time of your life. What I'm saying is that don't cry or give up when in hard times but rejoice because the success that is ahead, is greater than the pains and struggles you facing.
