Living

LIVING

Nothing is impossible. Healing is possible. You can heal all by yourself. Or maybe with

someone’s help, but it can surely be done. Don’t be harsh to your mind; to yourself.

Be kind to yourself. Your heart will never intentionally make decisions to hurt you. It

only chooses the path which you truly wish to take but what it doesn’t take into

account is the immense amount of pain and sufferings that that option carries with

itself. Your mind instead thinks about every step you take and what all comes along

with it. It is therefore, up to us whom we wish to listen to. Are we ready to accept

the heart’s decision and go through a thick bush of thorns? Or do we want to listen

to our minds and achieve something less great but with limited sufferings? What

comes along with both these options is the after thought of how we are going to

recover if we break down during either of the phases. The life we are living now can

be a dream for those who are fighting battles daily.

“Life is not a problem to be solved, but a reality to be experienced”- Soren

Kierkegaard.

What I understand by this is that the challenges we face are not to show us our

weaknesses but to test how strong we are to fight through them. Experience only

helps us become a better person. To be able to unfold the various mysteries that lie

before us. Just like it’s said; you gotta put up with the sun if you want the rainbow.

What if there are a few bad days? Better ones always follow them. Why be down

because of one thing when there are hundred better reasons to shine brighter? Take

every challenge as an opportunity to prove your worth. You will come across many

people who have given up on their lives because of something they couldn’t do. But

weren’t there hundreds of other chances for them to do something even greater? Do

you wanna look back in time and feel bad for the chances you missed for doing

something great? Or do you want to make the present worth it so that you don’t

have to look back in the future?

So wake up every morning with a new aim. Not of achieving something. But of living.

Cause in the end, we only regret the chances that we didn’t take.
