“Life is a journey, not a destination.” It is filled with hardships, regrets, and special moments that will stay with us forever that eventually will lead us to our purpose in life. The journey we take will certainly not be easy and smooth; in fact, it will help us realize who we are and why we are. The journey is a test on how much we achieve in life. It is true that we may tend to stumble along our way, but that should not mean anything to us. We should always think about taking the right path no matter what the consequences are. The only goal in life that you need to be achieving is to overcome any obstacles that are thrown at you and to trust yourself. You never know, maybe the obstacles are good for once and help you achieve more in life. Honestly, it is all about how we react to the obstacles that are thrown at us because, in the end, it determines what consequences we will face for the rest of our lives and how to deal with them. There are two main ways that help us in situations that do not go as planned. Focusing on the fact that something didn’t go quite as expected and letting it pass by is important because you can always try again. We can always make the best out of our failures for a reason and in the end, we will realize that these obstacles are there for a reason and we can get past them if we try hard enough. The best thing we can do is to not overthink about the negative moments and to just breathe. We must be self-reliant and eventually, the best is yet to come.
Time is key and if we keep focusing on the negative, we will miss out on so much that life has to offer. Many say that it is too late to go back to the past, but nobody said you cannot change it. We can take our mistakes and turn them into lessons that we can learn from, and achieve great experiences within them and move on. We have no time to spend worrying about the negative moments that we have faced and open our eyes when the real answers are right in front of us. The amount of hardships and regrets we have, the more it will make us stronger.
“What doesn’t kill you will make you stronger.” It is all on how one defines strong. When asked for your opinion on the meaning, you will probably say to never give up. That is not wrong but there is so much more to that. Being strong is to show everyone that you are independent. Do not allow others to make you fall. You may be heartbroken, but do not show it. Be confident and yes, do not give up. True strength is avoiding every obstacle that is being thrown at you and keeping your head held up high while walking away from what is not important. It all depends on the people we meet along our journey. Truly, there is no mistake in meeting the “wrong” person, but people assume the opposite because of failed relationships and drama. “The people we meet along our path are the people who we are destined to meet.” There is always a reason why we have a certain person “where we have to fight with” and in the end we do not realize their purpose and it has become too late.
Last year, there was this girl where I was not the best of friends with and we would fight. Deep inside I felt bad about this because we barely hung out. Besides, what is the point of fighting with someone you barely know? Before the year ended, I went up to her and said that next year let us have no drama between the two of us and she agreed. Now we are really good friends and if you ask me what I think about her I would say that I truly love her. One should not take the other for granted because you never know what that person might do to you, like how she benefited my life and became one of my closest friends. Recently, I got into a fight with someone which is not a big of a deal and to be honest, it only involves the two of us, but for some reason, rumors have been going around and so many people are getting involved. I’m a type of person who hates getting others involved because it’s useless, even if they want to help. Like what are you going to benefit from involving others and get this they blame you for doing what they did. Honestly, I just try my best to stay away. I know it can be hard to just ignore and walk away and trust me it is, but it will only get worse and worse if you just stay there and fight along. Instead of fighting back, ask yourself. Is this what I want? No, it is not. What’s important is that you should be someone who cares. Do it for others, but mostly do it for your own benefit. It takes time for things to go as planned but the wait is worth it in the end. To be honest, it actually took me a whole year to just ignore those who just wanted to cause drama. Everyone is given a role and they have to stick with it whether others like it or not. Some people may come and go in your life, and that can get a bit confusing which then you start to lose your trust for them. We may not realize it now, but the people sent to us will make a difference in our lives in a way were we never visualized happen. It could be that one person you always fought with turn your whole life into a blessing. Whereas, that one person you thought was your friend and told everything to, could be the person you never heard from again. All this is because of the people that are in your life, are just here to teach you some of life’s lessons and we sometimes tend to learn a bit more about ourselves. People will come and go, and this is completely normal. Sometimes we are lucky enough to meet that one person that will make our lives a whole lot easier. But that person will not be there forever, but they will never leave our hearts. Even though we will not always be with the person we like, we should make the best out of it. The mistakes, lessons, and experiences that we learn from these people will benefit and remain with us forever.
Everything that happens to us happens for a reason and sometimes that reason is telling us to wake up to a new day and avoid all these obstacles that are being thrown at you.We must experience hardships and regrets in order to experience a happy life. There is no such thing as good luck. To me, good luck is just baloney. It is just said to make someone feel happy about themselves. People tend to change along the way in order for us to learn to let go of our past. The reason why things do not go quite as planned is because we need to learn how to appreciate them. We believe lies so we can learn to trust ourselves before we trust others. Sometimes good things fall apart but that’s okay. In the end, it’s all for the best.
