Growing Up

Standard

Life has a way of turning around awfully fast. One day you could be at the top of your game, trusting everyone, and thinking life is one big bundle of sunshine, sparkles, and giggles. And then before you know it, you are kicked down, depressed, and seriously considering becoming a full fledged hermit. I’ve had many experiences similar to that and I’m slowly starting to understand that God puts us in the those situations because he wants us to grow and be a better person. Not every single thing that happens to you is going to make sense, but there are going to be things that happen for a reason and you’re going to understand that later down the road. When it’s happening, it may seem like the end of the world, but I think if you just take a deep breath and put your trust and faith in God, it’ll lighten the load of the burden you’re dealing with. So don’t beat yourself up when you make mistakes, learn from them. If you’re getting through life without making dumb mistakes, then you’re a freak of nature. You can take a bad situation you went through or use a dumb mistake you made to help a friend (or stranger) who is headed down the same road. Learn to be kind to everyone. There is nothing that gets you down more when someone is cruel to you for no reason (to your face or behind your back..), so be a person who says nice things..does nice things.. Smile at a stranger, tell a friend how important they are to you, go out of your way to help out someone who needs its. You can’t change your past, but you can have one hell of a future if you work hard and you’re nice to people. There are going to be people who will try to knock you down no matter how nice you try to be, but let them be an example of who you don’t want to be and don’t sink to that level. I can promise you that you are going to feel better and find it easier to smile if you are using your time on earth to help people out and not bring them down. Thank you to the people who have stuck with me through my not so happy moments lately…You guys are showing me the true meaning of friendship. ❤Image

  1. Well said, Mac. I have had a lot of people knocking me down lately and I am trying very hard to be the kind of person you describe here. It’s not easy some days, but in the end I hope it pays off.
