In all likelihood, most of us (if not all of us) might like things to always be okay with us and for us. But the thing is, everything is not always going to be okay and that’s okay. The dynamic thing about real life is that things won’t always go the way you want them too. But it does not mean that you are not going to be okay.
Life happens and sometimes we can encounter stressful and challenging situations. When that happens, it can throw you into a tail spin. At that point in time it can seem as if your life is in a state of complete confusion and disorder and it seems like the challenge just might be impossible to overcome.
One thing that most people don’t quite get is that every single situation they encounter is not going to be an easy one to deal with. But life is not always going to be pie in the sky or happily ever after. If you want to think of life as a bed of roses, then you had better expect the thorns.
Expect failure, broken relationships, loss and all the other “negative” things or perceived setbacks that life has to offer. Expect that you’ll make mistakes and you’ll have to face the consequences, as harsh as they might be. Know that there will be challenges and everything is not always going to be okay right away, that’s for sure.
But even though everything is not always going to be okay, that’s okay because you can get through whatever that challenge is. It’s often difficult to see that while staring down that challenge or situation. For example, it’s hard to see possible success after failures. For some it’s hard to see the possibilities of love after a broken relationship.
Everything is not always going to be okay and that’s okay
But your failure does not determine your end result. One, two, or three broken relationships does not mean you won’t find love. However, you can determine your end result by the action you decide to take. Those actions could either be to give up or to persevere.
While we may shy away from or avoid facing certain challenges, truth be told, those challenging situations help us to grow as an individual. They also make life interesting and they bring opportunities. Think about it. What would life be like without a few challenges? It would be rather boring and you would have no idea of just how strong and competent you really are.
Challenges force us to be strong in more ways than one. In addition to which, there would be no reveling in having triumphed in a situation or two. That triumph gives us an added measure of courage to face another challenge, due to that post traumatic growth.
These life challenges can also cause us to see a few undeveloped personal areas of our lives as well. For example, maybe there’s a required attitude adjustment required on your part and that’s why relationships aren’t going the way you want them to. So challenging situations can often help you to see what might be deficient and as such, bring out your best you.
Always keep in mind that step by step, day by day, you are closer to overcoming that challenging situation, even if it takes a while. So when next someone says to you that everything is going to be okay, that’s what you need to look forward to, with the understanding that it may not happen right away but in time everything will be okay.
