Your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding. – Khalil Gibran
One of the great things about suffering through adversity, trials and/or tribulations is that you gain a greater understanding of who you are. You learn that you are a survivor. No, you didn’t want to go through the depths of hell to find it out. No, you don’t want the scars that you hide behind baggy clothes as proof that you survived, but face it love….
You survived. You moved beyond the pain into understanding that although your life or situation may have broken you, YOU SURVIVED. You are moving. That’s it. That’s all. Simple steps. You take them one day at a time.
Take me for example…I’ve survived some of the most painful situations in my life. People don’t know, care or understand the magnitude of what I’ve gone through. It’s cool though. My life is my own and as I’ve often said to folks , “We ain’t getting into heaven on the friends and family plan. We are all going to be judged accordingly.”
Simple huh? You can’t worry about what people say about you. You just have to live the best life you can. You have to find peace with the situations, struggles or people who are not on one accord with you. You have to follow your bliss.
