We are all a little broken, some of us maybe more so than others.

There’s no one person that hasn’t experienced hardships or difficult  periods in life but your attitude through these trials is what ultimately determines who you are.

How do I know this?

Well just the other day, a friend called me to vent. As usual, she went on about how troubled and unlucky she was, among all the other things she was finding hard to deal with.

Being who I am, I wasn’t having any of it. I listened till she finished speaking and decided to shower her with some tough love, and asked her to introspectively examine all her troubles at that point.

The next day she called back with a different tale to tell.

So often  we resort to whining and complaining and submit to hysteria when things aren’t going so well in our lives. We do so without even considering all the elements at play, things like how bad things are or how easily they can be overcome.

The thing is, physical or mental pain will always be distinctive  human experiences that are mostly unavoidable.

Whatever you may be going  through, always tell yourself two things; “This too shall pass” and “Someone out there has it worse”. Why the latter? the world is a cruel place and I have seen real pain in the eyes of many.

It is true that each one of us knows only of our own pain and discomfort but we are able to empathize  with others.

Allow me to disillusion you from  the fear of pain.

Even in the midst of trouble and brokenness, hope must remain so transform your worries into joy by developing a fighting spirit and if you are feeling too overwhelmed,

hang in there just a little longer, light lurks at the end of the tunnel.
