They say that you can’t choose what life throws at you but you can choose how to deal with it. You’ve heard it before right?
You see, I think life is messy, full of ups and downs, cruel yet sometimes surprisingly beautiful. It gives us all sorts of things to deal with and that‘s sometimes quite frustrating right ?
Well, some would take these challenges “one step at a time”, some get stuck in the frustration and others would wait for the day when everything would be okey, when it would all go as it should be so that they could finally let themselves feel relieved, happy or complete of a sort !
I personally gave up the idea of that day existing let alone waiting for it ! Wanna know why ? Well, I’ve come to realize that like it or not, every day there’s gonna be some new challenges to deal with and how I feel about them has usually nothing to do with the nature of those challenges but with how I feel myself in that time.
Now, I’m not saying every “situation” you’re forced to face would be OKEY as long as you feel good inside ! (I’m definitely not that optimist, at least not yet.) Sadly some of the things life throws at us are absolutely painful and not fair. But I like to believe that when life gets hard, we should remind ourselves that we have the power, one way or another, to manage it the way WE see fit. Yes, you might have to be creative, brave or even sometimes cruel, but YOU ARE IN CONTROL of your life. Believe it, stop feeling bad for yourself and get the sh*t down however YOU see fit.-
