While our life is made up of setbacks and bumps in the road, they’re ones we’d rather not repeat, but may go on to repeat.
It’s the decisions that are made for us that act as setbacks, unless our decisions are the ones we make for ourselves. It’s other people’s decisions that can be the reason for our setbacks. Adapting into a life we didn’t instigate may always be our achilles heel, may become our failings, shortcomings and imperfections.
But we mustn’t rely on our lives being that way, without looking for change. We mustn’t up on ourselves, but instead must try to find a way through. We allow others to control our lives because it saves on the arguments.
Although bumps will always be inevitable, we don’t have to let them to continue. We get to change aspects of our lives. We must be prepared to look beyond what we know and what we see.
We must be prepared to look for the opportunities so that when they arise, we’re ready to act. Sadly, for some by the time that happens, they’ve emotionally already given up.
