Face Your Hardship

When I made the choice to turn my life around, I was so far down that rock bottom was reaching for the stars.

Yeah, it was that bad.?

The point is this. If you know that you need to turn your life around then, you damn well know that there is a problem.

Probably, a big ass problem!

Whatever that struggle may be, you have to face it head-on.



My entire life was a struggle but, there was ONE thing that caused it all.

ONE WORD – heroin.

Your hardship may be drug addiction too.

You could be in an abusive relationship.

In poverty. Living on the street.

Maybe, you have a mental health issue that you can’t get a grasp on.

Maybe it’s all of the above and then some.

No matter what your struggles are. There is ONE thing that is the root of it all.

Own it, Accept it, and Claim it. You have to.

Get Over That Shit

Don’t you hate when people tell you to man up or let it go?

Why don’t you just get over it?

You don’t have enough willpower to end it. You are weak.

Just leave. Simply walk away.

Ahhh!!!!!? ?

If it was only that easy.

The truth of the matter is that sometimes you can’t let it go.

That struggle has been a part of you for so long that it is permanently embedded in your brain.

You feel that every fiber of your being is a part of that struggle.

It has taken over your life, your body, your mind, and your soul.

So if you can’t let it go let it go, can’t forgive the situation or person involved. Try to forgive yourself as much as you can.

Then, in order to move forward and turn your life around, you have to make a choice.

Make a choice that you can’t live like that anymore and it’s now or never.

Overcome Your Fear

But how?

How do you overcome the fear to change and turn your life around?

As humans, we fear the unknown and don’t like being comfortable.?

Even if your struggle is pure hell such as a volatile relationship, physical abuse, homelessness,  or addiction.

It’s what you know. It’s what you are used to. You know how to cope, you know how to deal with the suffering.

If you have been through hell to overcome your hardships then it's time to be a true hero. You're a survivor, fighter + a pure badass. Nowhere near ordinary. Be a hero. #hardships #moveforward #changeyourlife #turnyourlifearound #badass #survivor… Click To Tweet

Now Is Time To Turn Your Life Around

If you haven’t come to that life-changing moment yet. You will.

It’s the moment where you decide to take action and change. Or you can decide to suffer in misery and keep shit the way it is. Yet, I suggest you choose to get the hell out of the mess you are in.

Get in your head that this is the time to TAKE ACTION. You must put a plan in place and follow through.

Get A Move On It!

My blogging buddy, Staks from Begin Better Today sent an email out a few weeks ago which has stuck with me since then.

She said something along the lines that you can purchase courses, hire a life coach, visit seminars, read self-help books, and all that good shit.

But if you don’t take actionable steps to do what you are told then it’s pointless.

Not one of those inspirational and educational tools can motivate you to get your ass in gear and physically make a damn change. Straight up.


Prove The Haters Wrong

I am sure everyone close to you wants you to change for the better.

Your family and friends want you to turn your life around.

Truthfully, if you have dug yourself into a hole so damn deep that you can’t see a speck of light, they don’t actually think you will change.


If someone is making you suffer, putting you through hell, and causing your misery.

They don’t expect that you’ll ever stand up to them. They don’t think you will get the courage to leave.


There will always be the people who are jealous of you or straight up don’t like you.

It’s the people who want to see you fail. They get off on your hardships.

Those are the people that you MUST prove wrong.


You can and you will turn your life around.

What Doesn’t Kill You Makes You Stronger

German philosopher, Friedrich Nietzsche said it best, “That which does not kill us, makes us stronger”. Sounds very eloquent like that. Does it not? ?

I think back on my past, my addiction, my homelessness, the abuse, the self-inflicted torture, and everything else.

Without a doubt, I am a million times stronger than I ever thought possible.

As humans, we do not realize what we are capable of withstanding and overcoming until we are left with no other option.

I do not wish the hell I went through on anybody. Nor would I choose to endure it again. ?

[irp posts=”7466″ name=”40 Quotes About Being Fearless”]

Although, I have come to accept my past. I know that I can not change any moment in my past.

Therefore there is no dwelling on what I should have done, could have done, should have done differently.

It is what it is.

All I can do now is learn from it and I know without thinking twice that I will never repeat it again.

Surviving Hell Strengthens You

Here is a cool tidbit that I think you NEED to know.

People who are able to overcome a bad past and those who survive trauma are stronger people.

If you are one of those people then you are remarkably stronger than those who give in and give up.

It is much more complicated to explain than saying you merely have more willpower.

It’s comparable to a flight or fight mentality.

You didn’t run away from your problems or succumb to them.

You fought through the bullshit like a beast and it may have taken you forever.

But you did it. In a sense, YOU WON.

So now what?

How do you transform your life from hell to hero?

Even though it's hard to see it now. When you turn your life around, you will realize your struggles gave you strength, resilience, values, and more. #inspirationalquotes #motivationalquote #selfimprovement #changeyourlife #transformyourlife #struggleisreal #personalgrowth #selfawareness

Let The Past Influence Your Future

Every person in this world will endure some type of trauma in their life.

A death of a loved one, a broken relationship, getting hurt emotionally or physically, serious medical conditions, and that sort of thing.

Typically, time heals the wound and the person moves on.

Then there are people like us who have had to endure more.

Our entire life was hell for years on end.

Due to that, our past is permanently part of us.

Being at rock bottom for that long does something to a person. It changes you and I can’t deny that.

It was so horrific that you shouldn’t wish it on your worst enemy.

Use that shit to your advantage.

Be The Teacher

You have overcome a lot.

You are a survivor, a fighter, a champion, and a heroine.

Most importantly, you are now a teacher.

What did your past teach you?

The lessons you learned have shaped your life, your future, and you as a person.

Now you know a few things:

  • You know for sure what you DON’T WANT.
  • Now you are aware of your STRENGTH.
  • Hopes, dreams, and plans. You know what you want out of life. The things you long for.
  • You know how to overcome hell.

I’m not telling you to go get your teaching degree but, you can use the power of your story to your advantage.

Could This Be Your Passion?

Your past was a lot to deal with, hard to overcome, and people thought it damn near impossible for you to turn your life around.


I know for me. My addiction and everything that stemmed from it was my life for well over a decade.

It is said that your past makes you the person you are.

My past has made me the person I am and made me know the person I DO NOT want to ever be.

If I can help somebody else turn their life around, why not?

Addiction recovery is my life.  Addiction is my past. Recovery is my present. Helping people with addiction recovery is my future.

Compensating For The Wreckage of The Past

When you were fucked for so long, the damage has been done. It will NOT disappear overnight or at all.

There will always be consequences to your actions.

Even if you turn your life around, you will still have to deal with the aftermath.

Such as a criminal record, relocation, mental illness, treatment, and the list goes on.

I know someone who messed up their life bad but, did straighten up and turn their life around.

Guess what? I… I mean they still have a criminal record so this rules out career possibilities.

Does that mean I.. I mean they have to resort back to the streets? Hell no.

If you have been through hell and survived then you know what it's like to turn your life around. But let's take it a step further. #struggleisreal #overcomethepast #moveforward #recovery #changeyourlife #turnyourlifearound #heroine

You Can Turn Your Life Around

There is always a way. Always a choice.

My addiction was close to doing me in for good. Thankfully, I made it out.

I want to help women in the same situation who don’t know what to do.

Guess what? I can do that and I will do that!

True, I will never be a nurse or a pharmacist but, I can be an addiction recovery counselor, a recovery coach, and work in that field.

I can be on the other side of the fence now. Helping people in addiction, instead of being an addict.

Thankfully, I am doing just that.

At the moment I am a speaker, addiction recovery freelance writer, and blogger. Also, I am currently working on a few other things.

I will help you turn your life around.

Are you ready?

It’s time to go from bad past to badass.


Claim Hero Status For Overcoming Hell

You can do it too.

No matter what your hell was or how long you were in it.

You overcame it. You prevailed.

Now you have the opportunity to guide other people out of the same hell.

It’s already your story, put it to good use.

Don’t just stop after you recover.

Make something of yourself.

Be the hero of your story. Better yet, be the hero of someone else’s story.
