If you’re wondering this isn’t going to be one of those poetic posts again. I’ve kind of had enough of them myself but in this post, what I want to explain to those of you reading this is why you should never feel disheartened.
Whether it’s education, your craft or just life in general, nobody understands why you do what you do.
There are a lot of critiques in this world and they’ll try to come and dishearten you and make you feel like shit.
They will try to come and de motivate you.. why? Because they can’t do what you’re doing, the way you do it.
Okay, that assignment you got a bad grade in, you’re disheartened. I understand. But try harder, keep pushing because it’s better to get something wrong the first couple of times and learn from it than continuously get it wrong.
That craft you’re working so hard on but nobody seems to be noticing, it’s fine. Keep shining. As long as YOU know you’re doing well, it shouldn’t matter what other people think.
The right time will come where the right people will notice.
The greatest things take time.
Easier said than done but trust me, don’t feel disheartened.
Nobody sees your vision the way you do. That’s what makes it YOUR vision.
Your parents aren’t happy with the path you’ve chosen for yourself. They might not want you to do that course at university or they may be unhappy that you’re not going to university as a whole.
This might be disheartening and this may put you down but I think that’s the worst thing you could do.
Yes you want to make your parents proud.
Yes you want to be successful.
But who said you need a uni degree to be successful?
Who said you need your parents to path your way for you?
Are you trying to make your parents happy or yourself?
At the end, you may realise that making your own decisions was worth it but you may also feel that you’ve wasted your time and that’s fine.
Look at the positives – you tried. See that as an achievement in itself.
This year if anything has showed me that there are plenty times that people or other things will make you feel disheartened but it’s what you do after feeling disheartened that matters.
Will I make this feeling make me? Or will I make it break me? That’s what you need to ask yourself.
I myself get disheartened quite a lot and my motivation tends to go but recently I’ve tried to remind myself that this is my journey. Everything can’t be perfect. It’s impossible and to just keep trying and pushing because the more obstacles that come my way.. the better my story will be to others out there feeling the same.
This post wasn’t the most amazing post but I really do hope it helps some of you who feel disheartened and whose motivation comes and goes like mine because of the comments of other people or just one low moment.
I promise you your hard work will pay off. If not today, sooner than you think.
