Life can’t be perfect; it isn’t and it will never be. Having said that; if we never had a worry or concern in our life we would not appreciate the good things that life brings. We have all had our ups and downs and rounds of sorrow, regrets and dissappointments, and without these we would not have become more tolerant of other peoples sorrows. It is by these that we grow into being better individuals. After all, if we can learn the importance of tolerance in our lives; we become more stable and able humans to help others and also carry our own load of troubles.
Life is wonderfully not all trouble……thank goodness. It it were we would not only not be able to bear it but, we would not want to live a long life either. There is a balance that we must gain and when down we should remember the good times and give the God of all humans thanks for the good. We seem to forget to do that. Humans we are! By being thankful for the many good things in life that overshadow the bad; we are able to know that at some point whatever we are going through will somehow come to an end and it will give us courage to keep holding on during the not so positive situations. It gives us courage and hope for a brighter day which we know will come in time.
When finding faith to go on is hard; we must look for new strength and ways to relish on the times that we have had what had seemed to good to be true. Faith is something that we should always keep renewed because if we lose faith; it is hard to keep believing in anything. “Faith is the substance of things hoped for; the evidence of things not seen.” Found in Hebrews 11:11. Faith keeps us hoping and hope is something else we can’t be without. Without hope we perish….so we must keep our faith and hope and know that life will mend in its own time.
It is easy for someone else to tell us what we need to do. True. But, it is easier for them to help us, because simply, their thinking is sometimes clearer than ours. When we are down; we should not push others away, but, it is a great time to allow ourselves to be taken in and given comfort from those who really care about us and have our best interest at heart. It is not being a burden if another person wants to listen; just make sure you know the person really well. Our friends and family have been given to us for a reason.
Sometimes when Life Isn’t Perfect; we must learn forgiveness and that “ain’t” always easy…… How do we learn to forgive someone or something that has happened when it seems to have taken our life away? We start by knowing that we have hurt others also and that to be forgiven; we must forgive others also. Nope, there is no way around this one and if you can’t forgive; you will at some point wish you had. If you dare to run sometimes someone has done in the ground and do not let go of the anger; it will torment you to death and finally destroy you. It happens….believe it and though it may take time to forgive; it will set you free from the past. It will give you a different outlook on life and help you want to go forward….with hope and faith.
