HGTV’s “Flip or Flop” stars Tarek El Moussa and Christina El Moussa officially finalized their divorce, and Tarek continues to use the experience to help encourage his fans and followers. The day after finalizing his divorce, Tarek took to Instagram to share a series of handwritten notes about trusting your experience and living through the ups and downs of life. Now, he’s sharing a similar message of hope to his fans.

Tarek posted a quote on his Instagram that reads: “Your journey has molded you for your greater good, and it was exactly what it needed to be. Don’t think you’ve lost time. There is no short-cutting to life. It took each and every situation you have encountered to bring you to the now. And now is right on time.” 

He posted his own message alongside it, saying: “It’s true…everyone has experienced hardship and pain in their life…this is what makes us who we are today. I ask myself daily- would I be a different person today if I didn’t experience all the trauma I went through? The answer is yes!! I’m better today from trusting that I am resilient, I’m a fighter and I have the ability to bounce back from any situation,” he shared. “Sometimes negative events cause a shift in who you are and how you view life. As hard as it is…you must embrace pain because in life you have two options… Option one, throw in the towel and crawl up in a ball..option 2 light the towel on fire, kick the ball and come out 10 times stronger than when you went in. If anyone is down or experiencing pain do this!!!!! Make the decision NOW to stand up and fight! Fight for you! Fight for your family! Fight for your life! It’s yours and no one else’s. Only you can control your future…make the decision to make it the best future possible and leave the past in the past!”
