If someone comes along and shoots an arrow into your heart, it’s fruitless to stand there and yell at the person. It would be much better to turn your attention to the fact that there’s an arrow in your heart.. 401 kata lagi
I am totally with Chris here and I think that it is important for all of us to be really true and not pretend all's well when they're not. We must to acknowledge and accept the bad that comes. There's nothing wrong with tears. There's nothing wrong with the feeling of hopelessness.
Back in 1999, I was 27 then, I wrote a journal and this is an excerpt:
"Life is good. It can be challenging, but it is good. It is interesting. It is colorful. Life is a wonderful journey that I intend to enjoy. Along the way, I may encounter adversities and conflicts. I may face pain and sorrow. Life may not be perfect. But yes, without them, how would I learn? How would I know that there is happiness? How would I know that I am strong if I weren’t presented with a test? How would I know that I am loved if nobody refuses to love me? How would I know that there are answers if there were no questions? How would I know of the day if there were no night? How could I appreciate my blessings if I have never experienced scarcity?..."
Thank you for sharing this post, Chris.
