Writing is my passion. I have an undying thirst and quest in the field of writing. Some eat, drink or use drugs when stressed; I write.

The many trials of life will knock you down so many times. Life is so full of challenging roads. Besides, when life knocks you down, you can get back up, or you can give up and stay down.

The enormous question is, what to do when you get knocked down? Should you lie there and allow life to pass you by or continuously get back up?

My advice to you, continuously going back up. It doesn’t matter how many times you get knocked down, whatever the circumstances may be, the most beneficial response is to get back up again.

The storms of life will knock you down more times than you can count, but it doesn’t matter how many times you fall - what matters is how many times you get up.

What keeps your head above water when you feel like life is pushing you under? Well, when you feel like quitting, often, courage is the quiet voice assisting you to endure by saying, ‘when you get knocked down, get back up.’

I must admit life is tough, but you can be more stringent. Life will knock you down, but one thing for sure. The ardent will go back up.

My knockdown experience in life taught me - when life knocks you down and closes the doors for you. It only means it is now an opportunity to honor your potential and move forward.

God will permit life to knock you down and close the doors because He knows if it does not knock you down you will not move forward unless it forces you to.

When life knocks you down, that does not mean you are weak or a failure, it only says pain comes with gain, to describe it well, “no pain, no gain.

Let me be the one to give you some insight. There are two kinds of pain; there is pain that hurts you, and there is pain that brings about a change.

One sure thing is that life will knock you down, but it cannot keep you down forever, the strong will get back up.

In life, when things go wrong as we know they sometimes will. When you feel tired, it is okay to feel so. Nevertheless, when it seems like you are climbing the most rooted hill; when your energy is low, and you are not sure how to continue, where to go, when your debts are very high, and you exhaled - don’t frown. You need to smile and keep going.

Remember, life is rough with every mile you travel, take a rest if you must, but just don’t quit. Actual strength comes from within, and you just have to struggle to continue regardless of what stumbling blocks come your way. Life will knock you down, but one thing for sure, the strong will get back up.

Three ways to get back up when life knocks you down

When life knocks you down, below are three of the best actions to take to bounce back faster from challenges.

  • Learn from life’s lesson: In life, we will get knocked down, but to get up successfully, we need to learn the lesson and turn the negative lesson into a positive one.
  • Surround yourself with positive people: Surround yourself with positive people who will lend a helping hand when you need one. People who will take the time to lift you up when life knocks you down.
  • Keep trying & refuse to quit: There is entirely nothing that will hold a determined person down even, if they getting knocked down, they won’t stay down for long they will get back up.

Love will knock you down

Life has many ways of knocking you down, but the primary approach is through love. Love brings about a feeling you can never imagine and feel ever.

It a feeling everybody likes to sense one day. However, when you awake to the betrayal, love can bring about a faint feeling that hurts to the bone.

Sometimes you hurt, ache so much you gasp for air and need the energy to maintain going. No one can explain or control the feeling of falling in love, whether it’s for the first time or the nineteen times.

However, when it’s your first time falling in love, you will feel on top of the world. Love has a way of sneaking up on you when you least expect it.

It brings about a feeling that will get you on cloud nine. Because you are so new to love, you will be excited, but the day will come where you will know you’ve fallen for the wrong line because you learn you are a lover of romantic words.

You may even realize you share your first kiss with the sinful individual, the kiss you once felt and thought you were so passionate about now seems artificial, and the spark is gone.

But here how to look at life’s knockdown, if you never got knocked down by love or in life, you would have never developed and mature into the powerful individual you are today.

Never allow yourself to be defined by what knocked you down, but always be determined by the rigid individual you are. Now that will allow you to get back up.

It means live life and learns, and it will assist you to realize that life’s plans will not always go the way you wish it would. But refusing to stay down and remember to chase the dreams that seem unattainable will come true.

Do you agree sometimes people build a person up just to knock them down?
