Can you escape failures, mistakes or pain? Can you achieve your goal without putting your soul into it?
There will be moments when you will feel that you can't do it anymore. You will feel that you are a failure. You will feel that everything is over.
You are not the only one who has to go through such a phase
Everyone goes through it. Every successful person has gone through it at some point of their lives.
It is okay if it feels that the pain is unbearable
You might be alone
The fear is real indeed
You feel stuck
It seems as if the circumstances are overpowering you
You feel that you can’t do it
You feel incapable
You are breaking down into a million pieces
All your past mistakes and heartbreak relentlessly get stuck in your mind like a song
It becomes difficult to survive with every passing moment
The tears keep rolling down your cheeks
They don’t seem to stop
You are tired of this pain
You recall how you’ve been hurt by people who meant the world to you
You are frustrated
You tell yourself that you don't care about anyone
Your faith in humanity shatters
What to do?
1. Don't fight with these feelings
Cry your heart out. Don’t try to stop your tears. It is completely okay to be weak at times. It is a part of being human.
Just let them be. Just feel them.
They will become more intense if you will try to resist them. Our mind is wicked that way. This is how it works.
2. Don’t make any decision
It is highly likely that you will end up making a wrong decision. You need to remember that an easy way is not always the right way. You have come this far and worked really hard.
You have built some parts of your dream, haven’t you? Don't smash them. Don’t give up on your dreams. It is just a phase.
3. Be patient
Go for a walk, call someone or watch your favorite show. Do something that helps you to relax.
Take a break but keep going
These moments of pain are meant to direct you towards your goal, not to stop you or push you away from it. Your pain will pay off.
How will you treasure your dream and not take it for granted if you haven't burnt every part of you to achieve it?
Make sure that one day you can proudly tell yourself that you achieved your goal
Make sure that you can tell your younger self that both of you did it
You dared to dream
You lived your dream
You lived the life you wanted to live
One day, you will live your dream
You will feel free again
You will be able to survive this pain
You will think about your dream again
You will realize that this is an inextricable part of the journey
One day, you will live your dream!

Thank you Eric and All the best for your poetry. I would love to read your poems.

Very good. I thought after near 20 years I could not write poetry any more. But I guess I do an OK job at it now. Or at least my friends say so. They are kind.
I am also picking up the Clarinet again. We may stop but art never does.
