A few years ago, I started up Abnormal Realms with the intention as an online resource where anyone could seek information involving possible situations one may encounters which are not the norm. On expanding this notion, my friend Tom wants to contribute by posting some articles addressing the hardships one could experience in a life. This added section is named Rock Bottom. I would like introduce everyone to Tom.
Greetings. Over the past year, I been following Abnormal Realm and enjoy reading the articles about UFOs, ghosts, curses and Bigfoot. Since ancient times even to this very day,many believe paranormal forces are at work within our world. Some people will never experience such events, while others maybe terrorized nightly from unseen entities. However, such occurrences are heavily debated to their existence with little progress made in discovering of any truth to these phenomena.
Despite what supernatural could be met, I know everyone faces the daily stress in living such as work, paying the bills, relationships, family, politics, crime and so on. These days trying to get ahead seems like an endless struggle and when you are at your limits something comes along making a train wreck out your life and being. Six years ago, I experienced such an event where much was lost resulting in a depression and addition. I was in a very dark place at that time, yet found a way out my hole and been moving forward to better my self.
What I learn to get over coming my difficulties, I wish to share with others hoping this knowledge in some way could help them in their journey. Now, just to clarify these articles are not meant to make you more likable, attract someone, get rich, or to get that promotion. Their design is to give some aid, guidance or something to assist in their own struggle in getting out of the hole life drag them into. If you find yourself at rock bottom, your are not alone. My name is Tom and I hope these articles provide some light or direction in climbing out .
I have always found inspiration and motivation in quotes from history, religion, literature, artist along with philosophers. Today, I would like to leave you with this speech from a movie which I find to give the best basic explanation of what everyone faces in life and what must be done. This quote is from the movie Rocky Balboa by Sylvester Stallone
“Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It’s a very mean and nasty place and I don’t care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain’t about how hard ya hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done! Now if you know what you’re worth then go out and get what you’re worth. But ya gotta be willing to take the hits, and not pointing fingers saying you ain’t where you wanna be because of him, or her, or anybody! Cowards do that and that ain’t you! You’re better than that! “ ― Sylvester Stallone, Rocky Balboa
