I hear people say that they feel anxious lately without sometimes no reason. Sometimes they experience sleeplessness or bad dreams, even nightmares, wake up tired, and sometimes even more tired when they go to bed. Many times we experience negativity and anxiety. We feel anger or frustration, doubt, and worries that are coming up to the surface. And again, many times, this happens without any particular reason. It hits us all of a sudden.

I want to bring you the message that you have everything to rise through your challenge, face your challenge, and your obstacle. But here is something else to remember. We don’t have to do that alone. Even if you don’t see it right now, there are people around you, so it doesn’t have to be your burden alone. The weight can be lifted with others who also understand that this life is about lessons. This life is about seeing what is there to learn, to grow.
