Daily Prompt: Silver Linings

Write about something you consider “ugly” — war, violence, failure, hatred — but try to find beauty, or a sense of hope, in your thoughts.


Losing trust in oneself  is ugly. Just the thought of not being able to trust your capabilities is one of the worst feelings in this world. This usually occurs when you’ve failed so much, over and over again. It just gets too much and you wonder: Will I ever get one thing done correctly? Will I ever get out of this misery? Will I ever be happy?

Apparently, you don’t know the answers to those questions you’ve been asking yourself. After all, you feel so broken to even bother dealing with life and fight. You think of a way of getting out.

Then, there’s little voice inside your mind that keeps pushing you to move on. You hear this voice telling you to be strong and keep fighting. You think back about all the things that have happened. Finally, you realized that you’ve been through a lot, and yes, you are still alive and breathing. You start to recognize that voice. You begin to feel hope.

That’s where you suddenly get inspiration. You get tired of misery and think that you’ve got to put an end to it. The result, you fight against your doubts and  regain trust to yourself. You suddenly begin to see things in a new perspective. You want to move on, fight against your negative thoughts, live the most out of your life, and just feel happy.

Sometimes losing trust in oneself drives you to step back and have a reflection. This makes you evaluate how your life unfolded after all the things that you’ve been through. You feel stronger and better than before. This is because you’ve known what it feels like to be at your lowest point. Instead of being stuck on that point, you continue struggling with life, not because you feel you had to, but because you want to do something better to make yourself happier.
