It isn’t as bad as you sometimes think it is. It all works out. Don’t worry. I say that to myself every morning. It all works out in the end. Put your trust in God, and move forward with faith and confidence in the future. The Lord will not forsake us. He will not forsake us. If we will put our trust in Him, if we will pray to Him, if we will live worthy of His blessings, He will hear our prayers.

President Gordon B. Hinckley

Things sometimes seem very bad. I know from experience. It can feel like your entire world is collapsing around you. The most carefully laid plans can be demolished, relationships go sour, and people can let you down or even hurt you. The pain that is felt from life’s disappointments is a very real thing. It can cut deeper than any physical wound can. However, things often seem a lot worse when you are in the moment. Things will get better, and everything will work out. The Lord loves you and wants you to be happy. To receive that happiness, hard times are required, but it will be worth it.

Stay worthy, show gratitude and pray to your Father in Heaven often. He will always be there for you, even when your life is crashing down around you. A friend of mine that I care very much for once said that the Savior is the reason that your world crashes down around you rather than on top of you. He protects you from the things that would crush you and enables you to overcome the seemingly impossible odds. Have faith in Him and His love and ability to help you. Everything will be alright.
