Why you should let your circumstances teach you, not define you.
– KEYS SOULCARE
You are stronger than you know. You are, like, so incredible The fact that you made it here and you are in the being that you’re in You’re already one of one There’s nobody like you anywhere in the world There’s nobody that thinks like you Nobody that feels like you Nobody that has to offer what you have to offer And so even when life is throwing you so many twists and turns And you feel like it’s never going to stop the tests You are stronger than you know And you are so special and uniquely you So don’t give up, keep going Because you have something to bring to the world that is deeply needed — Alicia Keys
To all the self-doubters in need of confidence boosters, Alicia dedicated this reminder to you. The takeaway? Don’t give up. We’ve all been there — overcome by imposter syndrome and feeling directionless. Real talk: it can be hard to keep a grasp on your worthiness when you’re caught up in turbulent times. This is especially true when it feels like the road ahead of you is still as difficult and unclear as what’s now behind you.
It’s important to embrace your full journey, not just the “good” parts. Take each heartbreak, disappointment, and rejection as a lesson on redirection. Recognize that resistance to hardship is often a barrier to resilience, but you’re more than capable of overcoming your fears.
Pause if you need to, rest because you have to, and put this on repeat: I am stronger than I know.
