“You will face many defeats in your life, but never let yourself be defeated” Maya Angelou.
Pain is an ingredient of life. There is no growth where there is no pain. Some of us may have already known that it is difficult to cope with the tragedy of life. We experience pain once in awhile, if not every day. Yet, how do we deal with it? Do we just let it happen to us? What do we do when we feel that pain is suffocating us?
Everyone handles pain differently. Some, but not all, decide to escape from dealing with it, hoping that they will discover an easy alternative down the road. There is no such thing as easy. If you find yourself accomplishing a goal without facing some difficulties. Get ready for trouble. Easy come, easy go. Throw yourself into the chaos, because nobody can teach you better than life. In the moment of those painful times, it is helpful to remind yourself that you are capable of making it to the other side. Don’t let it pass you without learning from it. Otherwise, it will be worthless. Also, smile through the pain, having a tight face will worsen your situation.
As you are working on your dream, you will accrue a lot of disappointments, a lot of defeats, but you have the skills under your belt to keep fighting for your dream. Pain come and go. It’s painful. But, you will get through it.
It is saddening and humiliating when the people that you think would help you is staring at you with their mouth closed or telling you that you are wasting your time. Don’t let it shake you. Go back to the drawing board and work on your dream. Deal with every pain that comes your way. You don’t have to understand the reason behind the pain immediately. After you go through the challenges of life, you will understand why it had happened to you. You will understand that it was preparing you for the bigger and better things in life. It is painful to make hard decisions and to learn the things that you don’t want to learn. Nevertheless, be brave, close your nose to swallow dirty water. Otherwise, life with the pain will burn you until there is no meat on your bones left. You will never be the same, when you let go of your pain.
There is something magnificent and unique about you. You are wonderful, gifted, resourceful, goal-driven. Don’t let the pain spin your head around. Pain is a part of life. You don’t have to knock down all at once in one day. Take it slowly, so that you can learn and grow from it. “No pain no gain”
“In life, anytime you want to achieve something, you are going to have to pay a price” John Di Lemme.
