When we go through our rough edges in life, don't we always feel weak and upset to the point we sometimes have no strength to even deal with situations much less persevere or not give up? Even though it is exhausting, the truth is one good thought or one bad thought is your own choice. Except thoughts repeat themselves over and over. So if you think positive, you repeat positive thoughts. You think negative, naturally you become gruff and bitter. Here's something I found to share with you.
There was once an island which housed the different Feelings. Because the island was sinking, the inhabitants constructed boats and all left except Love who wanted to hold out till the last possible minute.
When Richness came by in the boat, Love asked to come on board but was rejected because Richness said the boat had too much gold and silver, there was no more space. Love saw the grand boat leave.
When Sadness came by, Love asked to hitch a ride but Sadness rejected on grounds that Sadness was too upset and needed to be alone.
When Vanity came by in a beautiful vessel, Love waved and asked to get on board but Vanity said no because Love was too wet and might dirty the vessel.
Then came Happiness who zapped by because Happiness was so ectstatic she did not hear Love's cries.
Finally a voice quietly said " Come, Love I will take you." Love was so glad and grateful she forgot to ask where they were going. She only saw that it was an elder who spoke.
When they reached dry land, the elder went his way quietly. Love was puzzled because she still had not figured the identity of the elder who had helped her. Fortunately another old man stepped out and Love recognised him as Knowledge.
He told Love, the elder that helped her was Time.
"But why did Time help me?" asked Love both grateful and puzzled.
The old man smiled with deep wisdom and replied "because only Time is capable of understanding how valuable Love is."
Therefore do not worry if things are difficult now, over time, the pain gets less and less and if you're willing to be positive now, you will get over it sooner. If not, time will only make you bitter. :)
