How many times have you ever thought “Oh My God? Am going to die! I can’t do this. Let the ground open up and swallow me. Please, pretty please. Just take me away”.
Yeah! I went on a whole rant there because this is usually me when I feel like am at the end. And now that sit down and think about it, those times I uttered these words were situations that make me laugh when I think about how bad I freaked out about them. It’s crazy because in those times there was always someone standing at the sidelines telling me it was going to get better. And at that time I wanted totally to smack those people on the head and say “Are you kidding me?”
But somehow someway what they told me came to pass. Though they may have not given a great prophecy of the future, those simple sentences of reassurance came to pass. I naturally tend to fret with people when they are worried and I don’t seem like a good support system.
So I have decided to dedicate my time to tell people who may be finding some difficulties in some way that it shall pass. As cliché as that seems, nothing lasts forever, so if the night is difficult, the new day will come and days will pass. And maybe we may not forget about the past, it becomes a point of reference or even battle scars we wear proudly.
Come what may, things are going to happen; someone is going to misunderstand you. Someone is going to say something about you to another which may not be true. There is going to be a little squabble along the way. But where will be and what stories will we tell of our friendships, journeys and lives if there are no mishaps? Be optimistic but realistic. After all I am a much better person than I was a problem ago.
So I dedicate this blog to all the challenges that put me down but are a source of strength to me. To all who have met best friends, spouses, opportunities and just life lessons from challenges, this is for you.
A PROBLEM AGO…
