There is no denying that life can get tough at times.
We face challenges and difficulties, lose people we love, and go through dark moments where it feels like the world is against us.
It’s during these difficult times that many of us start to feel grateful for the small things in life and wonder if our situation will ever get better.
But how do you know when things will get better? When do you know that your struggles are worth it?
How do you even begin to see light at the end of the tunnel?
As hard as it might be to believe right now, there are positive things on the horizon.
Life doesn’t stay shitty forever; it has its ups and downs but we all can make life great again.
Here are 12 facts that prove life will get better:
1) You will make new friends – some of whom will be great friends for life
Friendships come in all shapes and sizes.
Some people are close friends while others are just acquaintances.
Some are very long-term friends and turned out to be best mates.
There are also people who just regularly meet but never really bond as much.
The only constant is that no matter what kind of friendship you have, it’s always good to have some!
Having a good friend is like having a second set of eyes and ears when you’re out and about.
Plus, having a friend can make life easier in so many ways.
It can help you relax when you’re stressed or lift your spirits when things aren’t going well.
It can help you deal with difficult emotions, such as sadness or anger, by sharing your experiences with someone else.
It can help you feel less lonely when you’re spending a lot of time on your own or feeling lonely.
And it can help you keep your sanity when things get overwhelming or overwhelming feelings hit hard.
Having a good friend is like having another person who cares about you, no matter what happens in life.
2) You will learn new things and develop new skills
Life is full of challenges and uncertainty.
As you go through life, you will face many new experiences, both good and bad.
While some of these experiences can be unsettling, they are an important part of the growth process.
Understanding that life will get better as you continue to grow and develop can help you stay motivated and resilient as you navigate the ups and downs of life.
By learning new things and developing new skills, you can build resilience for yourself as well as for others who may be experiencing similar challenges in their lives.
As you build your resilience, you can approach each challenge with confidence and be ready to overcome whatever obstacles come your way.
With this in mind, it’s important to keep an open mind when it comes to different ideas and beliefs.
No matter what happens in life, there will always be someone out there who disagrees with your point of view.
But if you learn to approach those ideas with compassion and understanding, you can see all sides of an argument without taking any personal offense.
3) You will travel to new places and have new experiences
The most common reason people travel is that they want to see a new place.
But there are also other reasons to travel, like experiencing something new.
If your life isn’t going well, traveling can be an opportunity to change things for the better.
It can also be an opportunity to experience something new and exciting.
People travel to see the world and to improve their lives.
Seeing the world can give you a real sense of perspective about your place in the world.
You can also see how other places are different from your surroundings.
When you travel, you may learn new things about yourself as well.
You might find that you’re more open-minded than you thought or that you’re better at problem-solving than you thought.
Traveling can also be an opportunity to help others in need.
If you see an opportunity to help someone else, it can be a powerful motivator for you, giving you a reason to keep trying even when things aren’t going well for yourself.
4) You will meet new people and learn about their cultures
One of the keys to living a meaningful life is to meet new people and learn about their cultures.
By doing so, you will gain insight into what makes other people tick and how they approach challenges in their lives.
You will also have the opportunity to observe and learn from those who have been through similar experiences in their own lives.
In time, this knowledge will help you to develop a greater understanding of the world around you and enable you to make better decisions as you navigate your path.
As such, you must take the time to get to know people from different backgrounds.
This can be achieved by attending cultural events, volunteering in communities where you are not from, or even simply learning about different cultures through listening to music or watching movies.
In addition, you mustn’t judge or stereotype others based on their customs.
Instead, try your best to understand them and appreciate their differences.
Doing so will go a long way in helping you feel more at home in your surroundings and the world around you.
5) You will find new things to be interested in and excited about
One of the biggest hurdles that many people experience when it comes to finding new hobbies is simply having the time to dedicate to them.
In today’s 24/7 world, there are simply more things vying for our attention than ever before.
While it may be difficult to find the time to fit in a new hobby here and there, there are ways you can make sure you have time to devote to it regularly.
One of the simplest ways is to simply decide that you’re going to make it happen.
Set aside a regular time each week or every day where you’ll sit and do nothing but relax and enjoy yourself.
Give yourself an hour or so and do nothing but read a book, take a walk around the neighborhood, or just watch some TV.
The idea is simple: you’re committing to doing something that will make your life better, whether that means exploring a new hobby or developing new skills, or learning a new skill.
The next thing you need to do is seek out opportunities for growth.
This doesn’t mean spending all your time looking for new things to learn.
Instead, look for opportunities outside of your normal routine that will challenge you and stretch your comfort zone.
Start small by taking classes at the local community college or by seeking out local volunteer opportunities that can introduce you to a whole new set of people and experiences.
In no time, you’ll realize that life is not so bad after all.
6) You will have the opportunity to make a difference in the world
In today’s world, many people are struggling with issues such as hunger and homelessness.
If you have the opportunity to make a difference in the world, it will give you a sense of purpose and meaning in your life.
This feeling of purpose and meaning can help you to feel happier and more fulfilled.
It will also help to improve your health and well-being.
Knowing that you are making a difference in the world can inspire you to be more motivated, resilient, and optimistic about the future.
By doing this, you will be able to have a more fulfilling life.
Having a meaningful life is important for everyone, no matter what stage of life they are at.
Even if you never plan to do anything that may change the world, it is still important to find something that makes you happy.
It will allow you to connect with others on a deeper level.
By connecting with others on a deeper level, you will be able to build stronger relationships which can help you grow as an individual.
7) You will grow and change as a person
Growth is the process of becoming more mature, competent, and self-aware.
It can mean different things to different people.
In some cases, it refers to the act of increasing in size or scope.
Other times, it involves a more gradual process of change that leads to greater maturity and better understanding.
To grow as a person, you need to make changes to become more mature and competent in your life.
You might decide to work on your personal development by reading books or taking classes at school or college.
Or, you could make changes in your behavior by taking control of your negative habits and replacing them with healthier behaviors.
The important thing is that you are committed to growing as a person.
Growth doesn’t happen overnight. It takes time and commitment.
And when you consistently make changes in your life, you can eventually see improvements in your life – from better relationships with others to more confidence and self-respect.
But when it comes to experiencing peace from having a better life, it could be that you’re not living your life aligned with a deeper sense of purpose.
The consequences of not finding your purpose in life include a general sense of frustration, listlessness, dissatisfaction, and a sense of not being connected with your inner self.
It’s difficult to have a better life when you’re not feeling in sync.
Maybe you’re feeling stuck, unhappy, or frustrated with parts of your life that you would love to change but haven’t been able to.

8) You will make mistakes, but you will also learn from them
Everyone makes them.
They provide opportunities to learn new things, gain insights, and improve.
Instead of letting mistakes hold you back, embrace them as opportunities to overcome failure and make progress.
One way to do this is by embracing the concept of “Mistake-proofing.”
Mistake-proofing means ensuring that your life is set up in a way that minimizes the impact of potential mistakes.
When someone with an innate tendency toward procrastination creates a schedule that encourages regular downtime, for example, they are less likely to fall victim to the temptation of distractions after work hours.
When someone with a naturally high tolerance for risk creates an environment that rewards success and penalizes failure, they are less likely to take risks in the first place.
Even if your life isn’t perfectly mistake-proofed yet, it’s never too late to start implementing these tactics into your routine.
As you continue making mistakes, you’ll have greater insight into what works and what doesn’t.
You’ll also have more opportunities to learn from those mistakes and put them behind you to make forward progress.
9) You will have good times and bad times, but the good times will outweigh the bad
Life can indeed get better when you have good times.
However, the good times will always be overshadowed by the bad times.
The only way to overcome this is to stay positive and continue to have good times regardless of what happens in your life.
When you are constantly having good times, it will make you feel better about yourself and your life in general.
It will also make it easier for you to cope with the bad times that may come along.
It’s important to remember that everything happens for a reason.
While bad things happen to everyone, they are not necessarily your fault.
If you try to keep this in mind as you go through your life, it will help you cope with whatever comes your way.
Bad times will always bring bad feelings but good times will make you feel better.
When you are having a bad day, it is hard to see the bright side.
This is what keeps us trapped in the cycle of unhappiness.
When we feel bad, it’s easy to spend our time complaining and getting angry.
But when we have good days, we are much more likely to be positive and happy.
It is important to remember that every experience has an opportunity for growth.
You can use each situation as a chance for self-discovery and personal growth.
One of the best ways to start feeling better is to change your thinking.
Pessimistic thoughts are one of the main reasons why people are unhappy with their lives.
If you can become aware of these negative thoughts and replace them with positive ones, you will begin to feel better right away.
Another way to improve your life is by making small changes that will not take a lot of time.
These can be things like getting enough sleep, exercising regularly, or eating healthy foods.
Even just taking small steps can make a big difference in your life.
10) You will learn to appreciate the simple things in life
Simple things in life that we take for granted are the best things.
From food to water, we rely on these necessities of life.
They help us survive, thrive, and continue to grow.
Fortunately, simple things in life are not only necessary; they’re also enjoyable.
It can be argued that appreciating simple things in life is one of the best ways to lead a healthy and happy life.
Allowing yourself to appreciate the simple things is an important first step towards living a more fulfilling and meaningful life.
By appreciating simple things in life, you can foster a sense of appreciation and gratitude for the things you have already achieved.
You will also learn that nothing is perfect and you should recognize your achievements and take pride in what you have accomplished so far.
This will empower you to push forward with renewed vigor toward your goals and aspirations.
Simple pleasures are often overlooked in the rush to get ahead and achieve more.
But appreciating your life by soaking up nature’s beauty, savoring a delicious meal at home with family, or simply taking a break from all the busyness can help you feel more in control of your life.
And when you appreciate the simple things in life, you start to see that it’s not just about the big things – but all the little things, too.
11) You will be proud of who you are and what you have accomplished
To feel good about yourself, you need to feel good about what you have achieved.
This starts with you feeling confident in your ability to do something.
You can’t be proud of yourself if you don’t believe in yourself.
If you are negative and self-critical, that will only make you feel worse about yourself.
Instead, celebrate your successes and learn from your mistakes.
When you have a goal in mind, it is important to think about why you want to achieve it.
Try to figure out what it is that motivates you and makes the result more than just a means to an end.
For example, if it is a race or competition, what does it mean for you?
Is it for the prize money or for being able to say that you did something hard?
When working towards a goal, keep in mind that it takes time.
Don’t expect to finish overnight and don’t get discouraged when there are setbacks along the way.
Instead, use them as opportunities to learn and become better at succeeding in the long term.
Being proud of yourself doesn’t mean that you are conceited or arrogant.
It simply means that you know who you are and what you have accomplished over time.
It is important because if you feel good about yourself, it will show on the outside as well.
You will be more confident and happier.
12) Life is a journey, not a destination, and it is always getting better
Life is a journey, not a destination.
It’s going to get better and worse, up and down, and everywhere in between.
So while you can’t expect it to be perfect every day, you can certainly expect it to be good enough—and that’s good enough for most of us.
As the late Nathaniel Branden said, “Life is a journey, not a destination.”
And as the late Yogi Berra said, “It’s tough to make predictions, especially about the future.”
But even though you can never really know how things are going to turn out in the long run, you can know how they are going to change over time—and that knowledge alone is often enough to help keep you going when things aren’t going well.
For example, if your job suddenly becomes more stressful than you expected it to be, then it probably won’t take long for you to decide that life isn’t worth living anymore.
But if instead, your job becomes less stressful than you expected it to be, then it probably won’t take long for you to decide that life is actually pretty darn good after all—and that will likely make everything else feel better too.
Keep your head up high.
Life does not just move forward; it also reverses.
Today could be the worst day of your life but it could also be a stepping stone to something better.
The truth is that life is filled with ups and downs, and sometimes it can be hard to tell which way things are going to go.
No matter how bad things get, they will almost certainly get better.
If you’re feeling lost or like things are turning out a little differently than you hoped, take a moment to take stock of your situation.
If you have made it through today, you can make it through tomorrow.
