It's not the load that breaks you down. It's the way you carry it. S. C.Lewis
We all have burdens to carry, 'you've got your troubles, I've got mine.' The Fortunes
Everyone has gone through rough times, death, divorce, betrayal, accidents, illness, etc. there is no end to what some people have had to endure.
And yet, have you ever noticed that the ones that carry the largest loads seem to be the kindest, most compassionate and loving of souls?
Some people seem to melt down when anything unexpected takes place. They don't seem to be able to handle 'life' at all, let alone, a disaster. They simply do not feel safe, lacking trust in themselves and the universe. And there are still others that whine and cry about anything, no matter how trivial. This is an entirely different issue of entitlement which requires taking responsibility for themselves.
If you see the world as a scary place, it will be. If you see the world a peaceful place, it will be.
I have found that when it comes right down to it if the person involved accepts his position in life, that's when healing is allowed in. When the worst case scenario comes to call, this person will be ready to deal with it. Positive outlook and acceptance can make your life a lot easier. Stop fighting 'what is'. All the kicking and screaming will not change the facts, and will only leave you exhausted, unable to fight the good fight. Accept your challenges, it lessens the power they have over you and allows you to live your life, not avoid it.
