What life teaches us

My life and experiences have shown me exactly what I am capable of and that I am a survivor. I am exactly where I am supposed to be with my blog and my book.

Although as a child, it didn’t take away the confusion or the hurt, it does bring understanding for me that this was my life and that through the odds and they were very much the odds, I have come through the other end.

I am pleased that through my blog I have been able to help myself understand and come to know about my disability, about me, helping others too, but it hasn’t come without a mental or emotional cost.

Having come across a girl’s story about her school days where she’d been written off by teachers having been told she would never amount to anything and proving her critics wrong that was my life.

But it’s not just something that happens in school. It’s true in life also. And whilst it’s also true that not everyone is capable of giving support, if the shoe were on the other foot, they would want our support and for us to be happy for them.

If we work on the assumption that what we put out we get back, put out kindness for other people and their potential success, the same favour will be returned to us. It’s how the universe works.

  1. Life has taught me a lot of very harsh lessons like being nice to certain people in order to make them happy will almost always come back to bite you in the ass.

    I have watched so many bad things happen to good people, while the bad people have so many great things happen to them, which has made me confused.

    Life doesn’t seem fair, but the reality is that it isn’t always fair, unfortunately. We just have to learn to accept certain things even if we don’t like them and stay focused on living our own lives.

    We can only make ourselves happy, which I wasn’t allowed to do as a child, but technically I am an adult so I can choose to live my life the way I want to finally live and not worry so much about making everyone else happy.

    1. Thanks Randy. Yes, life teaches us that we do have to accept certain things, but it also teaches us that we have control over certain elements too.

      What is meant for us will always find its way. The life we’ve had to live was already earmarked for you and me, long before we were born. Although, it’s hard to believe in this particular concept, it’s absolutely true.

      Not everything we see is as we think we see it, although it may seem from the outset that bad people have so many great things, but I don’t believe it’s true.

      Integrity plays a big part, society and the world has lost its way and those people are getting away with things. It’s back to basics and quickly.

    2. The 2nd paragraph of Randy’s comment is true, good things really do happen to bad people. But you must understand that their guardian angels are from hell, fate just hasn’t touched them yet.

      Life teaches us to be humble, kind and compassionate, if you’re really paying attention.

      1. Thanks Tim. Yes, it’s a difficult concept to get our head around.

        I am sure if we were to delve deeper, there will be suffering there, I believe we live our karma. Karma is a question of timing, fate will eventually catch up with us.

        Like you Tim, I also believe life teaches us to be humble, kind and compassionate, but we must pay attention to those. All easy to ignore when life gets in the way.

        We’re being tested and we’re not getting that right.
