There could only be enough suffering that we will encounter throughout our lifetime. God will never give us anything we can’t carry, so they say. It’s been so long since I bared myself through my words. It’s always been my avenue for expressing my emotions – writing, that is. How’s life has been lately? It’s been good. Bearable. Definitely better than before. I’ve struggled a ton and I have fought and defeated battles no one knew about. I’ve also cried myself to sleep multiple times but have woken up smiling and ready to take on another day. Routinary, but good. I like routines. Challenging, yes a lot.
I remember writing a post-breakup story here. I remember crying while typing the words and pouring out myself so I could create a masterpiece. Now, I realize that I am already far from that point in my life. It was painful. I can’t imagine how I went through all of that and still came out to be who I am right now – optimistic, hopeful, and still a romantic. I guess my mother’s words contributed to the outcome. She said the most comforting words and helped me carry on with my life while not losing focus on my goals. I also remember writing articles about how I struggled as a breadwinner. All of the things I mentioned there, I have overcome them. I didn’t know how I did it, but I just did. Day by day, little by little, step by step, I just carried on with life. I was thankful to be alive. I still am. Things have gotten better, for sure. Life has a new meaning and a purpose. Life is beautiful.
This goes to all those who are currently facing their giants. Everything that you have been through will one day make sense. Everything that you have to tolerate today will eventually be okay. That’s life. It is not perfect, but it is a beautiful gift.
