How long it took me to realize that my life’s sufferings was sometimes a blessing. The truth is, I couldn’t know it right away, but I could believe it. And yet it is not always easy to believe, especially when difficult, often and often, difficult things happen in life. They are the exams of strength, faith, morality, humanity, passion, vitality… though very often we are not aware of it immediately. Over time, somehow altered we realize how much we as humans have grown through our tribulations. Sufferings Are Sometimes Blessings (And We Don’t Know It)
Sinking Have Taught Me
There is a lot of sinking behind me and many of the most unpleasant emotions that have accompanied them. Sadness, anger, resistance, anger, fear, despair … I emerged later and moved on. I learned to reanimate, patch up and collect myself. To be artificial respiration myself, salvation. And then for a while, I continue to know and know-how, until the next sinking, stumble. Then again, all over again. I have wondered so many times in these unenviable states that famous question, most telling to myself – “Why do things like this always happen to me, why?”
And yes, almost rewritten situations were repeated. They pounded my nose, and, I began to learn and understand. They were like a school. It took me a lot, maybe too much time. But it’s worth what my hardships have taught me. Few evils are not for the good of others and there is little suffering that is not partly a blessing. Although, there are such … I learned along the way that it is necessary to know that some things cannot be known immediately. And that it’s important to learn. Because as long as you don’t learn, you will have the feeling that you are living a “Groundhog day”.
Suffering Is Sometimes An Opportunity To Grow
So many survivors of sufferings and adversity eventually turned out to be good, even true blessings. But I needed to change my view of what didn’t look like it at the moment and stop succumbing to an emotional circus. I should have grown up, stopped patting. And I also realized that the question I ask myself is being asked massively by the people around me. Everything happens to everyone. Shit happens. No one is spared because otherwise, it would not be part of this but some other reality. And at the same time, our life would not be a school where we grow and become a better person. And that’s the goal. Either you get better and you grow, or life becomes suffering and you are full of toxic emotions.
What would our life be like, what would we be like if we did not grow through our sufferings? The faster we grow and learn, the less we suffer, even as the darkest clouds collapse with all their might and threaten to destroy us completely. On several occasions, surviving very difficult times and people, thinking that it was something I did not deserve, it was very difficult for me. And then the day would dawn when, thanks to these moments and people, things became much more pleasant and beautiful. The air is cleaner. Breathing deeper.
Sometimes It’s Good We Don’t Have A Greater Power
I think a lot about how much power we have been given. Sometimes life’s events and plans simply go beyond our powers. And maybe it’s good that they do. Who knows how we would create our stories and shape reality when we had a little more power, not as much as we have now. Maybe out of good intentions, nonsense, we would also make who knows how chaotic things. And it’s hard to think about what the less evil ones will do with less power. We are not even aware that our limited power is a great help and protection … and that everything is exactly what we need.
Sufferings (Are Blessings) As the Seed of Future Change…
Let’s try to look at our sufferings differently, as blessings. Let us look at them as the seeds of future change and the blessings that spring from them. And let us set ourselves the task of recognizing them tomorrow. Let’s learn from them. Sometimes life surprises us so much that the greatest challenges and tribulations end up being the most wonderful gifts. Sometimes it won’t be like that and that’s fine. Accidents are an integral part of life. Same as mishaps, iniquities, injustices, challenges, losses. And death is an integral part of life. There is a lot to be learned from it, so much that we are not even aware. This is our hardest teacher.
Many times in my life it has been very difficult and I have suffered. But what I know now I didn’t know before. Maybe not always, and maybe not immediately, but some sorrows will turn into happiness, anger into gentleness, resistance to acceptance, anger into peace, fear into courage, accidents into happiness, some sufferings will grow into blessings …
We may not even know it, we may not even remember it later or it won’t matter to us anymore, but let it be … if that’s how it should be.
