You know what sucks? When life gets all sorts of tricky on you, and you aren’t quite sure how to juggle it.
Life is hard.
So cliche, but life really isn’t fair. But, if it was fair, would it still be exciting? Would it still challenge you to be the best person you can be? To learn from shitty situations? To embrace those around you who want to help you figure it out? Would you still be the person you are today?
Everyone would just go through the motions. Your life would be predictable, your daily activities would mirror those of everyone around you, the things that define you wouldn’t define you anymore, the bonds you have would be weak and unchallenged. You wouldn’t understand struggle. You wouldn’t understand heartbreak. You wouldn’t know what it’s like to be in a dark place and have to overcome it.
You wouldn’t be you.
Next time life has you feeling down, the next challenge that’s thrown your way that you don’t think you can overcome, that inevitable heartbreak that’s bound to happen sooner or later, remember that you don’t want life to be fair. These situations are what grow us into the incredible kick-ass human beings that we are. The ones that people want to get to know. The ones that have been shaped and molded by their circumstances. The ones that can see the world as an imperfect place, with imperfect people and be perfectly content with that.
Next time a challenge gets in your way… take it head on and know that it’s making you a better person.
