There is sadness and happiness inside every one of us. If you believe there isn’t, I believe you have not found it yet. We are endless in our emotions, feelings, thoughts and dreams. Our ideas can expand forever, and our capacity for love and loss and regeneration is astounding. We are constantly in flux, always moving down a path we cannot see but trust is there.
There comes a time for everyone to feel as though they lost the path they once walked and instead are falling into an endless abyss. There are times when we suffer and we feel so greatly we think we might collapse from the weight of it. There is not way to categorize suffering or happiness or darkness or light. There is only our personal experience, our personal triumphs, and how we see the world once the feeling has passed. We are all different, and the weight of our experiences grows or lessens with us.
Whenever you are feeling like the world is too heavy, or that the path you walk is getting harder to see, know this:
The world did not create a path for you to walk softly; you create your own path to walk passionately.
No one has given you heartache or happiness; you respond to those feelings and your response defines you.
It is not the job of another person to provide for you; it is your job to fulfill yourself, and in doing so, to fulfill others.
There are endless amount of criticism; your job is to provide goodness.
Others will try to bring you down; it is your job to lift them up.
The world will send enemies to challenge you; remember that mutual hatred requires reciprocation.
The darkness in your heart can feel eternal; you must believe that nothing lasts forever.
The world can seem like a dark place; give it a piece of your heart as often as you can so that your presence may light it.
