Feel free to be as cliche as you like. No judgments will be made by me and hopefully no other posters.
I kind of think that we're meant to take a lot of shit in life. People process on different levels, but nonetheless, we all have our own set of problems unique to our existences. I vow not to take an optimistic or pessimistic approach. Thus, I believe life has it's highs and it's lows. From the highest mountain to the lowest trench, the whole spectrum of emotional, physical, and mental dilemmas is apart of our life.
But that's only half of the process. Somewhere in our existence we acquired the "what can't kill makes us stronger" concept. And it works. The more and more we take on, the rougher the seas, the more and more we can cope with. Because these experiences birth the emotional and mental strength that is necessary to press on. The more we handle, the more we can
handle. The stuff we do and go through pushes our mental capacity every chance it gets. These obstacles should be looked as lessons to be learned..but that doesn't mean we can't fall. It takes will power to get up again. But, in the grand scheme of things, our little problems are less significant than we see them as. If we can embrace this theory, we're given strength to move on.
A Zen Buddhist put it simply: You can't have light without darkness. I'd love to believe life was that simple.
What do you think?
