I miss those times, the times where I don't have to fake a smile.
I believe that everything happens for a reason. No matter how bad the situation is, there's definitely a reason for it. Even though life can be a bitch sometimes and has its ups and down, just remember that this is just how it is. This is life and you just have to deal with it.
You know what, some people think that they're going through a really rough time and they're the only one who's going through it when the truth is, you ain't the only one. Open your big wide eyes and look around, everyone on this planet is going through 'something'. Everyone has their own problems, and some of them might actually have the same problem that you're going through right now. It's just that the only difference is how you handle it. Some people try to handle things by searching for a solution, some people have faith and hope for better things to come, some people just keeps complaining but never do anything about it, some people is just too ego to make things work, and others just simply gives up and never bother to fix it. I'm not saying that I'm an expert on handling my problems, oh never. To be honest, I screw things up quite a lot myself actually. But what I've learned is that you can tell a lot about a person by the way they handle things.
Sometimes you have to be strong for yourself. Make sure that you are a good person and a good friend. Appreciate everything around you because you never know what you have until you lose it, and once you lose it, you can never get it back. If you have something to say, just say it. Be honest and straight forward. When people give you advices for your own good, take it in and do something about it. Treat people like the way you want people to treat you. What is meant to be will end up good and what is not won’t. Relationships are worth fighting for, but sometimes you can’t be the only one fighting. At time, people need to fight for you. If they don’t, you must move on and realize what you gave them was more than they were willing to give you. Hopefully, people realize great things when they come around and don’t lose something real. Always fight, until you can’t anymore, and then be fought for.
Marilyn Monroe once said that people change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when their right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.
So the next time you're having doubts about your life, or complain about how shitty your life is. Just stop. There are people out there who is dealing with stuff that is much more worse and painful than what you are dealing with right now. They just don't show it to the whole world. Being too dramatic about something small can cause something huge, something worse. Seeking sympathy from everyone isn't going to solve anything. Running away, hiding or killing yourself isn't going to do you any good. You'll just end up more miserable. So, stop complaining.
