Pain of Progression

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.

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.

    I think, living is appreciating what we have, what we can’t have and we can still have. It’s being thankful that God have given us the opportunity to live this life and learning all the lessons so that we can be a better version of ourselves. It’s being blessed that we got the chance to live while there are people who can’t live this long like us.

    “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?”

    For me, feeling pain is a hint that we are alive. We are living the best of our lives.

    People come and go, we can’t force someone to stay even if we knew them since they were born. The only constant in this world is ‘change’. You have to learn how to let go for you to survive even if it will hurt you so bad.
    Life is a complicated twist of suffering, laughing, and learning all merging to tell a great story or great many stories. Life is not about having just fun, life is about struggles, pains, regrets, rejections, failures and lessons in life. If we surpass those, we can achieve happiness, contentment and success in life. God created life with full of circumstances/hindrances/challenges but God didn’t made those without solutions. He made those because He knew that it will help us grow as an individual and discover what’s our purpose in life. God gave us pain to remind us that we are alive so that we learn to value the beauty of life.
    Life is not easy but as we surpass the challenges, we will appreciate what’s life. Experience is the best teacher on every living individual.

    Feeling the pain nourishes your courage, you have to fail in order to practice being brave and discover your purpose and learning to continue. Turn your wounds into wisdom.

    “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.

    It is all part of our lives and for me we can not improve and develop ourselves that will lead to the better person if we never experience struggles, challenges, failures, rejections and regrets. Focusing on the good things that we have or that we experience and keeping the learnings that we experience before will keep us alive in this earth even there are more struggles and challenges that pulling us down.

    Always keep in your mind that God has given us the ability to overcome those challenges. And He will not give us challenges and struggles in our lives that we cannot.

    We can touched by people or person easily, we can close to them easily but when we’re to much attached to them we can’t conceal or hide our true feelings for her/him. Then suddenly he/she will leave you or go away with. Many people are scared to gamble for the love that they want and need and I believe it’s because they are not that strong enough to face it. They are not that faithful and intense to their love. Life is not easy and everything in this world is just a temproray, the only thing that is not change is the word “change”. We can’t predict our life in the future, the only thing that we need is to go to the flow in the waves of life.

    Remember that we need to feel the pain and be hurt in any struggles, rejections, trials, circumstances and failures in order to survive in this world full of sorrow. And if we feel and experienced we can now handle any hardship thay will come to us. But remember that there’s a person whose always there, you might not see HIM but we can feel HIS GREATNESS and that is God. BELEIVE THAT WE CAN GO THROUGH OUR HARDSHIPS IN LIFE WE CAN BE STRONG ENOUGH TO FACE THE WORLD. BECAUSE GOD IS WITH US.

  5. We must lived our life to the fullest, pain is normal God gave us this because He knows that we can survive it. We must not find a happy life, but a meaningful life.

  6. Pain is really inevitable, yes it hurts but you know what is the good thing about pain ?, it makes us stronger, it makes us a better person, it shapes us and make us the better version of ourselves. Pain is a proof that we are still humans and still alive. I also believe that pain is part of growing ang being alive means being hurt and accepting that things will not always go in your way.

  7. Life is a matter of choice. We may encounter different problems, challenges, struggles, failures, and rejections but let us take them as a lesson and move on. Do not focus on the negative side and see the positive to live your life to the fullest.

  8. Experiencing bad moments doesn’t mean their is no positive coming in to your life just wait for it because all of that was planned

  9. Live life to the fullest.
