Hard work. I once said I’m tired of struggling, and their response was “keep struggling.” YES. Keep climbing and keep fighting as you are not giving up when all you want to do is just that. The battle of emotions.
When my marriage got taken from beneath me, I needed to do something for my son and me. So about 4 months after the ‘shock’ I booked for us to take a trip together for a week in Morocco. I met a lady out there who told me “I promise you, you are going to be ok. You are going to be ok” These words repeated over in my head. She came from a marriage of 10 years with three children; her husband left for America and never came back and met a 16yr old girl and now has no contact with his kids . When I heard this it hit me hard, the whole fact of an uncontrollable act with devastating consequences, from someone’s selfish decision.
She had gone through some torment and shock from her past and she could sense my lost emotions and questions of what is it going to be like now…as she had gone through those struggles.
Those words have never left me and I thank her for telling me those simple words. If you feel you need to say something to someone in a positive light then I recommend you do so, from just smiling or saying hi, to speaking and letting them know there are good people out there. Things happen in lots of crazy and unfair ways sometimes. A simple act of kindness can really change someone’s day or even affect them for life like this lady has for me.
Thank you 🙂
