Bad things happen to good people. It’s part of life. Am I a saint? Hell no. But I think I’ve lived a fairly good life, treating others with respect, and like I want to be treated. I’ve tried to be honest, helpful, understanding, all of the above.
Of course everyone has their good days and bad days, but I don’t think I did anything to warrant what happened to me. In fact, I was the one who attempted to right any wrongs, and fix anything that needed to be fixed. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying any of this to score any points or trying to make myself to be the good guy. I’m not.
All that aside, when things went south, I got to take a good look at myself. Did I consider myself to be a good person. Yes, I did. But there was SOMETHING that had to be addressed, Things HAD to be shaken up. I had to suffer and go through what I’m going through in order to change the flaws that were there. Everyone has them. Some more amplified than others. In a sense, my old life, the old me, had to die so I could be renewed.
One thing that needs to be done is to learn and allow yourself to grow. Don’t let others or anything halt your rebirth. Look at what’s happening, and see what lesson can be learned. If you need to make changes, make them. Don’t keep feeding into all the negativity, or obstacles that others, and yes, ourselves, put in front of our progression.
Sometimes in order to find the REAL you, find your REAL purpose, you have to go through the fire and suffering. Too often people get comfortable and become happy with mediocrity or they succumb to all the negativity and all that is going wrong in their lives. Can’t happen. We are better than that.
