What if our life path is sometimes too difficult to walk?
What if our burden that we carry is too heavy?
What if our life feels like hanging above chasm?
What if we look around and are shocked by so many dissapointments? By so much sadness we have to carry?
One proverb says: Our strenth grows in the moments when we think we can´t go on, but we keep going anyway.
We would like to have our comfortable easy and happy life that we imagine in our minds. But instead of it we have to face many difficult challanges that we aren´t ready for. We don´t want them. But those hard times teach us so much about ourselves, about people around us, and about life. Sometimes we feel long before this happens, that something is not as it should be. But we do nothing about it. And suddenly, we face the situation that slowly but definitely change the direction of our path. We move towards the crossroad and we don´t want to go there, because there we have to decide which directrion to go next. But we wish to go back, where we used to be. It was so nice there, but there is no way back. It is a one way road leading us to the crossroad.
Life teaches us many things. And does it over and over if we don´t get it. We are here to learn. To understand that we have to make ourselves priority in life too. We cannot be dependeble only on others, it´s so nice, but it usually will not last forever. When we learn that, and start to really value ourselves, we find happiness that we can share much more than before.
I faced so many dissapointments in my life including deaths of my loved ones, dishonesty when wolves stole our hard gained possessions, i faced pathological behaviour of a person i loved and many times I was thinking how come such unfairness exists. But now I slowly start to understand that it all teaches us to be better people, to have more empathetic heart, to be stronger that we had ever been before and to value ourselves the way we are. We think we are very ordinary and see people around us to be so strong and beautiful and self confident, but it is not like that. We must realise that we all are just great the way we are. And our gifts are so big, and we must see them and use them.
Sometimes I feel like the snail carrying his home on his back. But it is a heavy burden and the road is very difficult. Sometimes we have to crawl though difficult paths. And sometimes we realise we cannot make it this way if we won´t lower the heavy burden on our shoulders. And than we have to release things or people from our lives. We have to let go. Or let go of our pain that we have stored in ourselves from the past or release the sadness of the people that we lost along the way. We have to calm ourselves and accept the situation with faith and hope and step in our days calm and content.
It is very difficult, but we are great and amazing people. And we can do it.
