Life is not always easy. We do not get always what we want. Most of the time, we have to work really hard to get what we want to achieve. Sometimes, all that hard work pays off and we feel satisfied because we have been able to achieve what we set out to achieve. However, at times, no matter how much hard work we put into we do not get the expected results. When that is due to our fault we blame ourselves and get over it. However, when it is someone else’s fault it is very hard to forgive that person. Nevertheless, when we grow up we learn to forgive people who did not intentionally harm our success and let go of those who only try to bring us down.
At times, there are difficult situations in life that are very hard to get over. Sometimes, this is a certain betrayal done by someone whom we loved with our whole heart. Sometimes, it is a certain medical condition that keeps haunting us time and again making us suffer both physically and mentally. These situations will seem like conundrums at those times because it is too painful to face those situations at the time and at that moment when we look at life everything seems so bleak and so hopeless. However, at each and every one of these moments, it is always important to find hope.
You may wonder why anyone should bother to find hope when life has showed there is no beauty in relationships with betrayals and there is no peace in a sick body or mind. Well, we have to still find hope because we have been fortunate enough to be born in this world as a human being. If we do not take advantage of the time we have to live as a human, no matter how little that time is, there is no use in being born as a human. It is folly to forget every good thing that has happened to you and every blessing you have been given in this life because of one bad thing, no matter how bad that thing is.
Sure, when we are beaten down we do need some time to process that. We do need time to think about that pain. However, we have to bounce back up. That is when having a good support system matters. I have always been fortunate to have a good family who always understands me and lifts my spirits when I am down. Even when I do not feel like it, I get up because of them at times. Also, every time something horrible happens which makes it hard for me to be happy I try to focus on all the good things I have in my life. My family, my career, the small comforts I enjoy, all the books I get to read, all the good people I get to work with, they all come into my mind and make me realize I have been lucky. That is enough for me to find hope until the storm passes. We all have such a safe place, such good thoughts that can make us stronger to face the world, not to lose hopes because of the pain we have to bear. We just have to find it.
Therefore, no matter what happens do not lose hope. Life is precious even if it is not as comfortable, happy or long as we would like it to be. Focus on the good part and do something good with the rare life you have gotten.
