What can I say? We have certainly all experienced a bad situation which you feel is quite literally the end of the world. Whether that situation is: an argument with a loved one, the loss of a loved one or even an unfortunate event which has happened to you. The only thing that occupies your head space from that exact moment is this: how will I move on?
Now, this exact moment is a major deciding factor in the arrangement of your future ambitions. How you decide to move on from a situation defines you as a person, HOWEVER, it does not define your destiny. This is something that so many people are unaware of. They aim to try and forget what has happened to them, choosing just carry on as normal- but I cannot stress enough how wrong that is.
When faced with a bad situation, choosing to forget what happened discourages your growth as a person. We have challenges in life to learn from them, every single situation is a learning curve- choosing to forget what has happened to you makes you unprepared for future experiences.
Recently, I have been faced with a lot of these moments- how you react to situations certainly defines you as a person. Attitude is key to everything you do, no matter how tough the situation is, the most important thing to remember is this: situations do not define your destiny.
The person who has the power to enable self-growth and turn situations into reflections and reflections into lessons is no one else but yourself. Stop waiting for things to get better over time. Time does not heal. It is the reflection during the time which enables us as humans to grow and prosper in the different challenge after challenge that life chooses to throw at us.
Think about every little thing. Write it down if you have to. But do not choose to forget a chapter in your life, no matter how dark it may be. Think of your life like a book. Each chapter develops a character further and further, so by the end of the book- the story has been told, the problems have been resolved and the character is fully satisfied with every single aspect of them as a person.
You are the author of your own story– you have the power to grow and tell your situations to others. Lets put it simply like this: when your story ends, don’t you want to be fully satisfied too?
