Everyone has pain.
It’s a part of nature. It’s a part of what makes us human. We feel, and in feeling, we can hurt. It’s so easy to just wallow in the pain. Let it consume us. Grief, pity, heartbreak, insecurity, lose, rage, depression. It’s so easy to just let it take control. We can cry until we pass out. We can yell until our voices give. We can hurt ourselves more, maybe thinking that it will somehow balance it all out. We can panic until we can barely breathe.
But what good does that do really? If we let the pain consume us, what are we accomplishing? …Nothing.
I dare you all, to rise above your pain. Take a deep breath, and just let it go. It’s not going to be easy. In fact, it will probably be really really hard. Sometimes you won’t even be able to do it yourself. You may even need help from other people. Ask for it. But you can do it. You just have to believe in yourself. You are the ultimate creator of your own destiny. You are the only one who can make yourself feel better. I dare you to let go of the pain and the suffering. I dare you to try.
Because if you can do that. If you can calm down after getting mad. If you can forgive after getting hurt. If you can love after getting your heart broken. If you can try to have a positive outlook. Then you will truly be happy.
Everyone has pain. But what really counts is how you handle it. People say that life is short, but it’s not. Life is the longest thing that we do. It’s the only thing that we have. If you waste it away with letting yourself be consumed with the pain, you are not truly living. Have faith in yourself. It will get better, if you let it get better.
“No one saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path.”- Buddah.
