Let’s face the truth on something, at some points in time, we can be in a situation where our life seems to be falling apart… Problem after Problem, issue after issue… From personal to private all the way to social and professional… Nothing seems to work!
I have always had the same conversation with different variation on the same topic; Someone would be talking to me about how life is hard on him or her and starts listing the negative things happening in their life. And I would almost always bring out the same point:
“That’s not a big deal… You know why… Because REAL problems in Life are only health related issues… The rest is just a day-to-day issue to deal with”
You see, the well-being of you and your loved ones, is far more important than issues you may have in your school, workplace, in your social space or even in your house.
And I started realizing that whenever I (or practically anyone of us) would meet a dear friend, I would skim through a summary of the highlights in like 5 minutes and then start listing all the negative issues facing my life in like 25 minutes. But again 5-6 years later, If I were to recall a flashback to the same conversation, I realize that I had to pass through some dark times, to reach and enjoy the sunlight!
Just when the caterpillar though the world was over, it became a butterfly
Funny enough, that Some of the really REALLY bad thing that happened to me at some points in time, worked great for me later on… If I HAVEN’T have had passed through these, I wouldn’t have taken some life changing decisions and I wouldn’t have reached to were I am right now… and Trust me I’m pretty happy with that 🙂
So for this Week, remember that whenever things gets darker and darker… The Darkest will be just before the Dawn…
Enjoy your Week!
