61 Inspirational Quotes About Living Life to the Fullest

Tick Tock… tick tock… do you ever feel like life is counting down on your internal and external clock?

Do you feel worried because you have not completed certain tasks or achieved certain goals in life?

Do you ever feel snowed under as a social worker? 

Do you have too many things to deal with at the same time and a lot of work to do in your life and career as a social worker?

Do you sometimes feel low?

Yes, life is full of challenges. You may be worried about uncertainties in the economy, serious medical problems, family issues, losing your job, having a negative investment portfolio, or perhaps you just worry about how the day will go.

Each person faces each challenge in life differently.

The ability to face life’s challenges comes from within.

In most cases, it depends on the environment you are in and your mindset.

Some people draw strength and inspiration from the experiences of others.

poems of encouragement and strength

Poem About Life Struggles

Poem of encouragement and strength can uplift the spirit.

Reading or listening to a short poem about life struggles can provide insights into why you should not give up on life and face obstacles with positivity.

One of my favourite poems about struggling in life is the one below by Emma Swain.

Within this poem, you can find many motivational quotes for life struggles.

Sometimes you have to push yourself, just get out of bed.

You stay up till late wishing you were dead.

You ask yourself, “why can’t it be someone else instead?

You get tired of all the thoughts in your head.

You lose sight of who you want to be.

You blame yourself, screaming, “Why am I me?”

You wish you could just be free.

Open your eyes and you’ll see

That life is what you make it, and sometimes it’s hard.

We get battered and bruised, mistreated and scared.

We forget what’s important.

We forget our drive.

We all need a focus point,

A reason to survive.

Find your passion.

Find your drive.

Find something that makes you fight,

And you will survive 


When faced with life struggles and challenges, remember you are not in it alone.

You are in charge, and those dark phases will pass by.

Don’t allow yourself to sink into a place of darkness.

Speak to friends and family if you feel overburdened. OR seek professional help, if that is your preferred choice.
