Life isn’t hard, people in it are. Life doesn’t hurt you, people in it do. Life isn’t unfair to you, people and situations are.
Life isn’t beating you down, it is in fact always there for you, kind enough to keep you breathing.
Life isn’t what’s around you, it is what is inside of you—your breath, your heartbeat, the blood running through your veins, the strength in your limbs and that voice in you, that’s life.
So stop blaming life for things people do. Stop giving up on ‘life’ because of the actions of others. Get rid of this misconception that people, things or situation destroyed your life.
Nobody can do that, they can only mess your present. You need to realize that time is always ticking and that present quickly becomes the past.
Too bad, you continue to treat it as present and keep their wrongdoings alive in your head.
Hell, you even feed those memories and use it as an excuse to justify your present situation.
Are you even aware of human power?
Do you know what you are capable of?
Do you have any idea what potential lies in you or how powerful your mind is?
No, you don’t. Because if you did, you wouldn’t be using its powers to run in circles, you wouldn’t be ruminating over past events and dragging it into your present or planning to push it into your future.
As powerless as past events, actions of others and situations can be, the scary thing is you are someone who is utterly capable of destroying your own life.
You will do it with pride and distribute the blame among everything that happened in that small stretch of time that broke you, you will blame one event but fail to see that you are the one who is responsible for dragging it throughout life.
Bad things that happen to you can’t end your life, but sadly, you can. You are the only one holding the deadly weapon, you have the power to end it and it’s pathetic if you are abusing it.
Stop treating your life like a joke, stop taking it for granted, stop feeling crippled because when life actually starts to get away from you, you will die even before it leaves you.
When your body starts to give up on you, when these lungs no longer want to breathe air in you, when your limbs get tired of waiting for you to do something with your life, you will know what pain really is.
You will know the difference between a lesson and real pain but it will be too late. Cling to those burdens, and life will give up on you. Remember this.
