It is easy to be “down” when everything and everyone seems stacked against you.Hopefully, these positivity quotes for tough times at least give you some sense of solace that you are not alone. We all have felt the pain of tough times.Tough times are unavoidable. The only thing you can control is how you react to them. Sometimes it may be hard, but hopefully you are able to react to these bad times with positivity, optimism, courage and hope. When you are able to do this, it does actually take much of the sting out of the tough times.One great way to face being overwhelmed by an idea and approach life’s challenges with optimism is by using affirmations.Affirmations are simply phrases you want to repeat a series of time (5-10) like a mantra.

At the end of every tunnel, there is a light somewhere, a light of hope and reason, and a light to guide us to the safety from the dark, to outstretched hands there. These hands hold out friendship, something everyone needs, for friendship brings a wealth much more than anything money can buy, for without this wealth, many of us would just shrivel up and die. David Harris


We all have the ability to change in a positive way, so according to this quote we all have power. If you ever feel powerless, remember this phrase and try to make a positive change in your life. The feeling of having no power may be a signal that you need to make a change. It’s best not to wallow in that feeling and have it become a habitual thing, always be striving to feel your best and listening to your emotions, as they are the key to guiding you through life. When you start making positive changes, see how powerful you feel.
When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives means the most us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving much advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a gentle and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares. Henri Nouwen
It’s pretty amazing being a woman, you have all of the essentials for life within you. You’re a very nurturing force, and not only have the power to create life, but to incubate it and deliver it to the world. On an individual level you’re able to change and become whatever you want, growing and developing into the life that you choose. It is an amazing experience and one that you’ll want to create consciously rather than letting others decide what sort of life you’ll have. Never forget that you have these powers within you.

For so long women had to fight just to be considered equals in society and get the right to vote. Even today in America women earn less than men in the same jobs and roles. Worldwide women are still viewed as second class citizens. Why? Let’s all adopt the viewpoint in this quote.

13. If you chase anything in life chase the things that get you excited about living. Chase the things that give you hope, happiness and a glimpse of a better life. Chase the things that make you want to be a better person. Chase the things that inspire you to think, create and live joyfully. Chase the things that reinforce in your soul that you can make a difference. Chase the things that make you want to transform your heart from selfish to selfless. When you chase that kind of storm you are chasing rainbows. ― Shannon L. Alder
“What kind of answer could she give? If there’s one thing she hated, it was labels. Sam thought about the kiss they had shared and all the times they had held one another late at night. It was yes, wasn’t it? The right answer. Sam wished it to be so, but she had never discussed it with Lance and both of them had openly used the word ‘friend’ when explaining their situation. Sam thought about it until her head hurt.”
