What Life Puts Us Through

Updated on November 19, 2012

It seems that everyday that we wake up, something new happens in our life or maybe it is just that one same routine. Then there are points in our lives that change us in either a positive or negative way. We all have had situations happen in our lives that have helped us move on from what happened in the past. We have been made stronger as we live each day going ahead in our lives.

As I look in my past, I find that I used to not be as open as I am now. I can remember when I had a bubble around myself afraid to let people in my life. Having a sheltered life can either be good or bad, it just depends on which family you are in. Most of my life had been sheltered, I never really went out with friends, you can say staying home was the best thing I did. My teachers never had problems with me because I really wanted to excel in school no matter what. Yes, I did have some friends but never had time to hang out with them. I didn't really have to go through a lot of situations in life at this point because I had my family but eventually we all have to grow up. As I grew up, I became more open to life and what it had to bring.

Now that I am older and more knowledgeable about how life is, I realized that life has its good points and its bad points. A friendship that maybe at one time could have been more at one point cannot be no more, this won't bring me down, it will only make me stronger. You have probably been through this at one point in your life and you will probably agree that it made you want to live life stronger and in a more determined way.

Maybe a death in the family has affected your life. But knowing that one person is somewhere else and not suffering is something that makes us think that life is worth living because I don't think that the relative who died would want us to live life in sadness or depression. This can really make us live our life stronger, knowing someone will be happy with us, living our life in happiness.

Breakups, they can hurt especially when you have been with a person for so long. But when one thinks about it, there is a lesson to be learned. We learn more about ourselves because we realize how much potential we have to make a relationship work and how far we can make it go. It is really a matter of knowing what we can do to make something wonderful last long. I believe that after we realize this, we can move on with our lives and make it worthwhile.

Things happen in our lives and yes, they may not be what we wanted, we may go through pain and tears in those lonely nights. Those memories that we hold on to can shape our lives. It doesn't matter whether it is about the past or even the future at times, what really matters is what we make of our lives on a day by day basis. We cannot let situations halt our lives all of a sudden, yes they will put our steps in pause, but we need to move forward, let our situation and trials, because they are trials in a way, make us stronger. Whether we are single, married, a mother, or a father we all can learn from our troubles and trials because they will help us become a better person in the end.

      Your last paragraph is such a good summary of your valuable advice: "we need to move forward . . . trials in a way, make us stronger. " Quite an inspiration. Thank you.

      We have to choose between the pain of loneliness & the challenges of going out of the shells.
