There are a lot of things in life that we do not understand. Things that happen that weren’t supposed to, but here we stand looking at them face front and hoping against hope that it was just a dream. We close our eyes for a while and wish it to go away, but it doesn’t. It stays there, it stays still.
We think hard where we went wrong, why it had turned out the way it did. Each night, we endlessly roll around the bed wishing, praying, that we have a way to turn back the time to prevent ourselves from doing what we did. Change the past so we don’t get caught up in a situation where there are only two narrow paths to walk on… The one where we right the wrong (yet in turn lose more than what we bargained) and the other where we give up and just give in to insanity.
There we stand in the crossroads, gritting our teeth with frustration, on our knees as we look up and ask “God, what do I do?” Inside of us, we realize that we deserve it… We deserved every bit of the suffering because we chose to do what we had done. Despite the regrets, there is no way to erase or change what has happened. As they say, the damage has been done and there is no way around it… But we can always choose to be better than who we are, to fix what has been broken, to come out at the end of that very long, dark, and winding tunnel okay… That’s all it takes – be okay. Survive it, then learn from it. Resist giving up. Fight it.
There will always be hurdles along the way, but continue to stand up… Continue to fight. JUST. KEEP. GOING.
You can surpass it.
