Just as the stars in the sky shine and brighten what would be a dark an empty sky, so do souls shine to fill this earth with light. You are one of those stars, you are a soul born from the love of God, just the same as everything else in this beautiful universe. You are born from the light and you shall go back to the light once this journey to earth is over.
You must never forget your origin, even when you feel depressed and anxious, when you become negative you bring darkness close, you cut yourself off from the source of love, you become empty of joy and full of pain. Instead of being guided by positivity, you allow every negative influence to guide you off course. At times like this you need more than ever to reconnect with yourself, so you can regain your standing within the universe. In a sense you become a lost child, wandering aimless in the dark. The child will not find its way home unless it can find a source of light to direct it, whether that be through the moon, a lamppost or a torch, or anything else.
You need to look within for your source of light, the inner connection to God and the universe. Others can help, but ultimately you will have to find the connection yourself. Other people cannot be around you 24 hours a day to guide you. You have to do the majority of the work yourself. These words may help you, but I will not be there tomorrow to hold your hand. You have to find the courage to break free of the negativity so that you can be guided by your inner star.
It does not matter what others think of you, if they reduce your self worth, you must stop listening. You should only listen to words of encouragement, you will never shine brightly if you take the ill spoken words of others to heart. You must rise yourself upwards, so your mind and heart can reach God, only then will you receive the guidance you seek, it will be untainted and infused with love. If it is anything less, then you are not listening to God, but your negativity.
Life can become very challenging and tiresome, especially if you are swept along by the problems of daily life. You need to ground yourself in the now, do not think too far into the future, or reflect on the past, unless it is a memory that reminds you about how good life can be. When you remember your achievements, do so with the thought that you can do the same again, do not let self doubt overtake your mind. If you have done it once, you can do it again. Your achievements shine brightly like the stars in the sky, reminding you what you are capable of. Let them shine, so the positivity can fill your mind once again.
You know deep down what is good and bad for you, if you have lost your way, its because you lost your connection to all that is good. You let self doubt rule your mind, instead of the inner star. Knowing this, you know deep down that it will not be so hard, to pick yourself up, so you can live your life once more.
