Writing is my passion. I have an undying thirst and quest in the field of writing.Some eat, smoke, drink or use drugs when stress, I write.

Hillary Clinton Quote

Life will knock you down many a times. What do you do when you get knocked down? Do you lay there and allow life to pass you by? My advice to you, do not be afraid to get back up and try again. Don’t let the hard blow prevent you from loving, living or even bringing dreams to reality. Life is full of challenging roads.

How do you keep your heads above water when you feel like life is pushing you under? Well, when you feel like quitting, when things at its worst remember that if you be strong and hold on you will arrive at your best. I must admit life is tough, but you have to be tougher. Life will definitely knock you down, but one thing is for sure, the strong person will get back up.

My knock down experiences in life taught me - when life knocks you down and closes doors on you, it only means it is time to begin living up to your potential and move forward. God will allow life to knock you down and close doors because He knows if it does not knock you down you will not move forward unless you are forced to.

When life knocks you down, that does not mean you are weak or a failure, it means pain comes with gain, no pain no gain. Let me be the one to give you some insight. There are two kinds of pain; there is pain that really hurts you and there is pain that brings about gain and change. One sure thing is that life will knock you down, but it cannot keep you down forever, the strong will get back up.

In life, things go wrong as we know that they will. When you feel tired, it is okay to feel so. When it seems like you are climbing the deepest hill; when your energy is low, and you are not sure how to continue, where to go, when your debts are very high, and your breath seems it has gone - don’t frown. You need to smile.

Remember life is rough with every mile you travel, take a rest if you should, but just don’t quit. True strength comes from within, and you have to be willing to struggle to continue regardless what challenges block your way. Life will knock you down, but one thing for sure is that the strong will get back up.

When we lose everything we own, where we are barely staggering along, we have taken a plunge into the unknown. When success is going from failure to failure it necessary to take an enormous step of hope and faith to remember the greatest men and women in the world have been known to get knocked down. But one thing for sure as many times as they fall they got back up to win. So, whether we struggled to stand up or allow life to knock us down, we must remember life will knock us down but one thing for sure the strong will get back up.

One thing that’s just as certain as we someday have to die is that somehow, sometimes, life will knock you down. Maybe your knock down can be the choice you made to take a chance to love and trust the wrong individual which can be a devastating blow that just straight-out knocks you down.

However, when you find yourself knock down on your butt by life, you have a choice to make you can stay down, get nowhere in self-pity and get comfortable before a live audience playing the role of a failure or you can pick yourself up, be among the strong that know one thing is for sure, the strong person will get back up.

Three ways to get back up when life knock you down

  • ·Learn from life’s lesson: In life we will get knock down but to be able to get up successfully we need to learn fromthe lesson and turn the negative lesson into a positive one.
  • Surround yourself with positive people: Surround yourself with positive people who will lend a helping hand when you need one. People who will take the time to lift you up when life knock you down.
  • Make a decision to keep trying & refuse to quit: There is absolutely nothing that will hold a determine person down even if they getting knock down they won’t stay down for long they will get back up.

Love will knock you down

Life has many ways of knocking you down, but the main way is through love. Love bring about a feeling you never imagine and felt before. It is a feeling everybody wish to have forever. However, when you awake to the betrayal love can bring about you will get a weary feeling that hurt all the way to the bone. Sometimes your hurt ache so much you find yourself grasping for air and need the energy to keep going. No one can explain or control the feeling of falling in love whether it for the first time or the nineteen time.

However, when it your first time falling in love, you will feel on top of the world. Love have a way of sneaking up on you when you least expect it. It brings a feeling that will make you feel you on cloud nine. Because you are so new to love you will be excited but the day will come where you will know you have fallen for the wrong line because you learn you are a lover of romantic words. You may even realize you share your first kiss with the wrong individual, the kiss you once felt and thought you were so passion about now seem artificial, and the spark is gone.

But here how to look at life’s knock down, if you never got knocked down by love or in life, you would have never develop and mature to the strong individual you are today. Never allow yourself to be defined by what knocked you down, but always be defined by the strong individual you are now that allow you to get back up. Life is meant to live and learn, and it will assist you to realize that life's plans will not always go the way you want it to go. But refusing to stay down and chasing the dreams that seem unattainable will come true in the end.

Do you agree sometimes people build a person up just to knock them down?
