Sometimes we have life made in our heads, with plans, goals, dreams, a profession, a job, and an endless number of things that we believe we are destined to do and have.
Many times, we believe that because we are good people we deserve everything, but it turns out that life doesn’t work that way. You will probably get many good things if you act well but acting well is not a guarantee that you will always do well. Do not always expect kindness and justice because life isn’t always as fair as we would like it to be.
So, what should we do?
We should try to understand only as far as you can to learn, but not beyond … do not try to understand everything, there are many things that as humans we cannot understand…
So, do not blame yourself, learn to accept and let go. It is life that speaks and like most of the time we do not understand its language. We want everything NOW, but it tells us “wait, the best is yet to come, open your heart and let yourself go“.
Even if things happen to you that seem unfair and you fall apart … get up and rebuild. Feel yourself, you are life, listen to yourself and let time show you everything you need.
For a while, I have realized that the best thing we can do for ourselves is to renew who we are. No matter what process or life you have, what you need is to rebuild yourself; it is always a good time to improve yourself. Renew the person you are, and you will see that there is a big difference when we focus on changing what we know we can improve.
It is normal to feel negative emotions after seeing your expectations not fulfilled, but that is temporary; do not dwell upon them. On the path of life, sometimes you cross a dark forest, but in the end, there is always a light that illuminates everything. Do not hurry to find the light, simply walk forward, and it will arrive.
Never lose that capacity you have to build and rebuild, again and again, as many times as necessary. Life offers you infinite possibilities, do not cling to those that hurt you, embrace those that walk with you in happiness, and make you smile! Do not get hooked to the past. Life is not controllable no matter how much you want to control it.
Promise that you will reinvent a better version of yourself every day.
To live is to change, and to be perfect is to have changed often. – Bl. John Henry Cardinal Newman
