Positive Quotes to Live by During Dark Times

Life is not all about rainbows and butterflies. Sometimes life just takes a toll on people, and it’s just normal. Here are some uplifting quotes to help you stand up when everything just seems to be dark and gloomy.

1. “When you have exhausted all possibilities, remember this: you haven’t” by Thomas Edison

This was another side of the famous inventor Thomas Edison. This quote is perfect, especially for people who feel like there is really no hope out of the situation. That feeling, when you think you have exploited out all chances yet still to no avail, is truly disheartening.

This is what Thomas Edison wants you to think; that even when you feel you are out of options, you can still come up with another plan or way, as long as you have the urge to do it.

2. “You need to spend time crawling alone through shadows to truly appreciate what it is to stand in the sun.” by Shaun Hick

This is really an appropriate quote, especially when you feel like you are at your lowest point. This will serve as a reminder that when you reach the light at the end of the tunnel, it will all be totally worth it, and you would come to appreciate it even more because you worked hard to be there. If you just strive to do things right, those lowest points would not be that bad at all.

3. “Your friends will believe in your potential, your enemies will make you live up to it.” by Tim Fargo

If you got some enemies that just make you feel worse all the time, don’t be upset; instead of trying to impress your enemies, which won’t likely happen, show them that they are wrong about you, and they can’t tear you down. Plus, you got your friends on your back that believes in you, and that’s all that matters.

4. “Why worry? If you’ve done the very best you can, worrying won’t make it any better.” by Walt Disney

Although it is a normal reaction to start worrying especially when things don’t go as planned, Walt Disney reminds us to stop fretting about it. Aside from taking a toll on your mood, energy, and time, it doesn’t change the situation at all.

It may be difficult to keep the worry bug off. So, you better keep yourself distracted with a lot of things to make you forget about fretting. You can read an inspiring book that may uplift your spirits, or talk with a friend that will make you feel better.

5. “Sometimes our light goes out, but is blown again into instant flame by an encounter with another human being.” By Albert Schweitzer

This is a good reminder that in this battle of life, no one is alone. Your friends and family, even if they are not physically present, will be there to support or uplift you, no matter the storm. If you’re feeling all alone in this battle, try to talk with someone, either family, friends, workmate, or even mere acquaintances. For sure, this will somehow ease the burden and will make you feel that you are definitely not alone.

Life is like a wheel, sometimes you are up and sometimes you are down. Don’t let the bad side of life get the best out of you. When you are feeling lost and all gloomy inside, try to read these quotes that will inspire you to face the challenges that you are having right now. Also, try to talk with your family and friends to help you feel loved and supported even during your darkest times.
