Maybe it’s not about holding on. Maybe it’s better to let go.

We all go through these awful seasons and in the middle of them we’re thinking in days and weeks, but later we realize our best seasons of growth take years. Years is a long time to fight, and you’ll eventually run out of steam. But if you can learn to rest in the middle of the pain - to stop fighting - to accept your current situation and to learn to live now, not later when things get better - that’s when the most dark moments can become beautiful.
