We all strive to reach that final destination in life called happiness. But sometimes happiness doesn’t come as easy as we think. Sometimes it requires facing certain obstacles and learning certain lessons before we find it. In most cases that means getting out of your comfort zone, risking and accepting certain things in life.
Ultimately, it is important to understand that life doesn’t always go according to your plan. But that is not a bad thing. Because that is how it teaches you the greatest lessons. By challenging you.
So, if you are someone who is going through a difficult period right now, know this…
Change is not bad. In fact, change is the first step toward growth.
If you want to find happiness and leave your life peacefully, you will have to accept these things first…
You will have to accept yourself, flaws and all. You will have to find a way to stop looking at yourself with resent. You will have to find a way to understand that your flaws do not make you unworthy. It will be hard at the beginning, I know. But it will be your responsibility to remind yourself that your flaws and your differences are exactly what makes you YOU.
You will have to accept your insecurities. And instead of hushing them or putting them in a box, you will have to confront them. You will have to stand up, face your fears head-on and remind yourself that you are a human after all. A human being who has emotions. A human being who is sometimes frightened, anxious and confused just like the rest of us. Some will tell you that it is always better to ignore your insecurities and lock them away, but the reality is… doing that will not solve anything. Shoving them aside instead of accepting them will only backfire in the worst way possible.
You will have to accept that some people are not meant to be a part of your life. No matter how much you think they do. No matter how hard you try to make that happen. One day you will have to accept the fact that some people are meant to stay forever by your side, but some are just a part of the lesson that we need to learn. And trust me, no matter how hard it seems, doing that will be the most liberating thing you will ever have to do.
Ultimately, you will have to accept that life won’t always happen when you want, and it won’t always happen the way you want. This is one of the hardest things that you will have to understand, but once you do, everything will be much easier. You will no longer be afraid of the changes, but rather you will welcome them with open arms. You will no longer torture your mind with endless questions because you will be sure that whatever life gives, it is for your own good.
