You Have Won!

You Have!

By Ruth Elizabeth StiffPublished 2 months ago 1 min read
You have won in love

“Just because

you are struggling

does not mean

you’re failing”

We Appreciate Life

much more

when we have had to struggle

to keep it.

You are not alone!

Every one of us is struggling,

some quietly,

some loudly,

but we are all struggling.

What does “struggle” mean?

“It is a forceful effort

to get free from restraint”.


“To proceed

with great effort”.


has a Positive feeling

to it.

You want to do well

in that exam

so you just put in

a great deal of effort

to pass it.

You really want that new job,

so you overcome

your limited knowledge

and learn

as much as you can about it.

When a mother gives birth,

she could be struggling for hours in labour,

but when she holds her new-born

son or daughter in her arms —

she has won

over that struggle!
