They said everything happens for a reason, and that “everything” includes persons – people we met every day whether we know their names or not, neighbors, friends, classmates, and every person that surrounds us have a purpose in our lives.
They may give us life lessons, experiences, and memories we can bring throughout our lifetime. The purpose will stay but the person won’t. Those lessons we gained will be our water that will sustain our growth, satisfy our thirst to survive, and will strengthen our roots for us to be prepared for the obstacles that will come. It’s within our individual decision and perception of how we face our life, how we breathe, and how we embrace it.
We are given free will – free to choose one from a pool of options and always consider that in every option there are challenges. To live, we have to give worth in every detail we had walked through. And to be motivated, we have to look back to our path with the challenges we’ve been through.
How do we live life? Well, it depends on our own perspective. And if we want a happy one, we should not run away from life’s challenges, instead, we should conquer our fears, learn to fight, rise every time we fall, and then fight again. We should consider life’s challenges as opportunities to learn and grow rather than a reason to surrender.
