Pain of Progression
Life is too unfair. Life is only for people who can stay alive. That’s how we see life isn’t? What is life all about? In this world that full of people who live to ask this same question to themselves every day of their existence. We tend to look at the bad things instead of the things that we already have. We just don’t know it yet, but we haven’t truly been alive without looking at the good things in our life. We have never been truly alive when we haven’t even experienced that single moment when we just feel like everything’s on our side and like we’re not fighting in this world where everything and everyone just seems to try and keep bringing us down.
Life has its good and downsides and everyone has their own limits. We are emotional beings. Pain demands to be felt, as quoted from the book of John Green (The Fault In Our Stars). We can never be truly alive without experiencing pain. But the question is, “Is the pain is really worth it to be felt? Is the pain will help us to demand a different you in every next level of your life?” This aspect of everyone’s lives isn’t really about the pain itself. But about all the lessons that we need to learn throughout the torture sessions that happen in our life. In life, people would be bringing us down and that can never be changed in our society. But that isn’t really the main focus. A lot of people would be trying to get what we have but being alive means not letting that happen. We also experienced to be loved and love them back more than anything else. But a day will come, they will not love us anymore and the only thing that will remain is the memories and pain of leaving. Loving someone means giving them the time to adore you but at the same time, giving them the space they deserve. There was never a term such as “forever”, that’s impossible. We’d like to believe we can achieve that eternity with people we love but sometimes, the people we end up with are also the people we never thought we’d actually live with. But looking from an inverse mirror, instead of looking at those who we’d meet and be with forever, upside-down, it’s just the person who was always there for us and suddenly left us. And that is the most painful part in being in touch to the person. Believing that what we have now is what we’d have tomorrow. We believe in the best things in the people who are with us, and the worst things in the people who are always scarring our backs. Many things in our life can hold us back, stop us in walking in our way through our home. We were lost in the path and asking ourselves the meaning of our life. But that’s is the true meaning of life, a life full of struggles, challenges, failures, rejections, regrets and also after we pass all of it we got success and happiness in our life. We fight, we struggle, we conquer our fears because in the end, we realize that the only competitor we truly have is ourselves.
The hardest part in being alive is that it requires us to be more than who we are. We are called to look, not only to the surface, but pass every strand of prejudice in every person. Every experience has its meaning and quitting never made any good. That’s what being alive is truly about. Trying our best to change the things we can and accepting the things we just can’t.
