People are not your personal punching bags. They can be million things but never this. Just because you are hurting, doesn’t mean that you are allowed to scar others or if it is raining upon you, doesn’t give you any right to push others in the puddles as well.
There are people among us, who are bleeding, who are dragging their lives around, who are barely alive but still, somehow they find a way to ease others’ paths. They are quite few, almost near to none, but THEY ARE among us. So, you see, it is possible; being nice to people, even when one is hurting, is not some ‘alien concept’, rather, it is the time when it matters the most.
You wondering why? Well, anyone can be nice and gentle when they are in high spirits but when one’s world is crashing down and they still remember to be kind and gentle, can be quite a challenge.
There are some things in life which make you cry like they happened, the very moment. You feel the same level of pain, that you felt months or even years ago. Sometimes the emotions get a lot more intense than they were on that ‘actual day’. And you feel like you can never get over it.
I have been there.
You cannot turn a painful memory into a happy one. You cannot turn a loss into a gain. But you can move your focus form the gloomy picture and take notice of the brighter side.
The pain is part of this life, but so is joy. Now it depends on us, which we choose to keep in focus.
“…..today is a gift. That is why, it is called the present.”
You probably have heard or read this quote, a million times. But it only speaks to you, when you are on cloud 9. It might even work, if you are somewhere around it. But what to go with, when you feel like you have nothing to go with.
From my understanding, I think our moods or situations cannot stop today from being a gift. It might not be the gift, one is hoping for, or wants at that time, but you will come around to it.
When you get a gift, you don’t throw it at the giver’s face just because you don’t like it. Instead you smile and say thank you. You put aside that gift for later use. That’s what you do. You do not lash out, just because someone didn’t get you what you wanted. That’s how it is with today and life.
In life, we have to face some things, go through experiences, that we wish, we never had to. We question them, even lash out at our creator, for putting us through all that. But do you know, He also gets us out of it. All we have to do is never give up.
We can take a break, cry our eyes out, but we should never quit. The direction might not be what we have planned. But then again, can we ever be sure, that where we are heading, is where we want to be.
You probably have made millions of mistakes in your life, and that is okay. Because we are humans. We are tend to make mistakes, that’s how we learn. But remember this, under no circumstances, you should ever make these mistakes:
1. The mistake of believing that you are not good enough, or that you do not deserve something good, or that its all over.
2. The mistake of losing belief in ‘starting over.’
3. The mistake of staying in that pile of blunders, you once made.
last but not the least,
4. The mistake of quitting to be a better person than you were yesterday.
