Even on your worst day, even when you feel like everything is falling apart, and even when you feel like nothing is going your way, know that you are not alone. There are millions of people out there that are going through something similar; we are a lot more alike than we think.
We all share similar struggles, sure every battle is unique to the person, but we can relate. No one’s life is perfect, no matter how hard they try. Bumps along the road are inevitable. But as you get over those bumps, there are people right along side you.
In Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck, the Joad family is kicked off there farm that they have had for generations and are forced to take a long journey to California in hopes that life will be better over there. On this long and difficult journey, they are not alone however. They have company from the Wilson family and meet new people at every rest stop. The truly beautiful thing is that all these struggling families worked together to help the other family as best they could. “Twenty families became one family, the children were children of all. The loss of home became one loss, and the golden time in the West was one dream.” They faced their struggles together, and were able to overcome them as one.
Whenever you feel alone, remember that no matter what you are going through, someone out there is going through the same thing. You are never alone. Don’t give up.
