Photo credit: @hamburg.stylish

Life is made of ups and downs. I don’t know why that is, but it’s just the way it is. I’m not complaining. In fact, I like it when sometimes I have to encounter a difficult time in my life. I mean, I like it when I could surpass it, but during that time, of course, there’s stress, there’s pain, and there’s self-doubt. But when I surpass it, it makes me stronger, more mature and be a better person. Have you also noticed that to yourself?

Q: What do you do during difficult times?

Eden’s answer: During difficult times, I make sure that I am surrounded by likeminded and supportive people. People who would understand me, support me by letting me know that they are there and that they accept my vulnerability. And of course, like many of you, I also turn to inspirational and motivational quotes to help me through difficult times.
