You lost, you feel defeated. You ask yourself how can this happen? You put everything in…………and you ended up short.
You loved so much, and you lost………..
We think that life is so unfair………..and it is.
The only thing that stays constant, is everything changes. Your life will change. It will change constantly and without remorse.
It will change in ways you can imagine and also in ways you could have never foreseen. There will be times of love, and times of anger. There will be times of heartbreak, times of living and times of dying.
We question ourselves, we question our very being. Sometimes we may even question our own sanity.
People will tell you that things happen in life for a reason. Is this a truth? Do things really happen for a reason or are we simply telling ourselves this so our life does not feel like it is spinning out of control.
Why do these things happen? Why do bad things happen to good people?
Why do bad things keep happening to me?
The truth is bad things happen to all of us, it is the one thing that binds us together during our life.
We are all insecure at times. We question if we are good enough, if we are attractive enough, if we really mean anything to anyone.
Many will search for a lifetime on social media for acceptance and appreciation. This shallow reflection of human life simply expands insecurity. Social media is simply people showing what they want you to see. As in a Hollywood blockbuster you see what they want you to see from the perspective they want you to see it from. It is a fantasy based on reality.
When you look in the mirror, you believe you are seeing the person you are. What you see in the mirror is only YOUR own perspective of how others see you. What you see in the mirror is not what others see in you. Your insecurities, might be what another person adores about you. You will never be able to understand how others see you from their perspective.
To find yourself you have to shut off all the noise, all the clutter that jams our life full of meaningless tasks. Close your eyes and shut out anything from the outside.
What do you see?
Who are you in this place?
This is the one place all of us can go. When you find yourself in this place, believe in yourself. Learn who you are and why you are who you are. Once you learn this, you will be stronger. You can face adversity knowing that you will not lose your foundation. You will know who you are.
We are often the makers of our own insecurities, and our own harshest critics.
Life is so short. Do not waste it on petty issues.
The beauty in life is going through the valley of the shadow of doubt, and then after the darkness, to watch the sunrise on the other side.
Feel comfort in knowing that just like you, we all are going through the same thing.
It is all part of the human experience.
When you are surrounded by the darkness, the light is easiest to find. All you have to do is look.
