The Bottom Line
All of these quotes about hitting rock bottom and rising up afterward are meant to motivate + inspire you. You need to hear these words to know just how unique, special, powerful, badass, and amazing you truly are. Your past can not be forgotten but, you have already risen up from rock bottom and achieved so much. Yet sometimes when we get in a pickle, we think about how much easier it was when we didn’t care. When we had nothing to live for or goals to chase. It was easier to just keep messing up.
Even though things get hard at times. That is never a reason to hit rock bottom again. You have to remember that you are better than that. I’ll let you in on a secret from personal experience. Everytime you hit rock bottom, it gets worse and worse. Each time you go back down is more horrid than the time before and it keeps getting harder to get back out. Until eventually, there is no coming back. I’ve seen it happen to many people. While I have hit rock bottom more than once. I am not willing to go back there again. I have worked too damn had to get to where I am today. I’m sure you have too. Do not let all of your hard work be for nothing.
Remember, keep moving forward. Strive for greatness and badassery. Be the phoenix who rises from the ashes.
