I guess I owe this article to a awesome read I just had from @Itsfarah latest article which he titled "Life is very precious" he deeply talked about the essence of living. We never truly know how blessed we are to be alive and going much until there is a sort of unusual encounter or situation that brings back our consciousness. Maybe owing to the popular proverb that says you never know the use of something until we loose it. We can not afford to loose our lives first before we see how preciously blessed we are, and lucky to have new days everyday, depicting that there is hope, and change can still happen.
No doubt so many have die and should be regretting why they had to end their lives so short all because of a feeling they had. Like I do say "what's the worst that can happen? If the circumstances are too bad then it probably wants to steal every bit of joy in you, that is painful but the sad event truly wins only and only when you give up totally. Bad things do happen no doubt, all to frustrate someone and get them tired of living, but if you don't give up then it's not game over, instead you're playing the game and someday you can win.
So hang on, regardless of anything, regardless of any matter of concern, you must keep living and living, in hope and joy. All would be well, situations do change, opportunities do rise out of the blue. No one can tell what the next minute holds, so why not stay. Stay, hang in there, don't give up the fight. If its life threatening, the fight till it's the last breathe. And this is for sure, God honors faith, he sees those who are not shaken and kept the faith even in the worst of times and he would always come through.
No matter what we are going through or have gone through, the honest truth remains that there is someone else out there, that is going through worst. Infact when you hear of their story, you'll have to forget yours and just be grateful. So many have been through worst and today are happy. That same issue that made someone kill his or herself, is the same issue that someone else experienced and overcame, today they are happy with thei decision. How bad can life get that it removes all values of life, no come on, keep living regardless.
It's more reason why I want and hope everyone can know their God and stand firm with him. It's so natural that we go through phases, and when you come outside and see everyone else smiling and laughing, you'll think you're the only one who is experiencing something bad, and feeling like you're the most hated person by God, but that is so untrue. Infact he is never intending anyone suffer, he's never folding his hands to a cry for help. He is a father, oh the best father in fact, not one that can be compared to our earthly father, he is way more loving than any other father, he comes true, but then stay in hope.
How angry can one get that one gets angry with life, how hurt can one get that he feels like the world hates him and doesn't need him no more. Sometimes I wonder how crazy our thoughts can get, and as we keep pondering on it, we keep seeing reasons to believe it until its fully accepted and lead to depression. Up until someone comes up to help us count our blessings, then we would say OH!!!!. Know how cunning the negative thoughts can be, they can be true events but they are only little but lousy. The lousiness of our negative thoughts makes us feel as though nothing good has happened.
So when it feels like there are no reasons to continue being joyful, like there are no reasons to keep staying happy, like there are no reasons to stay alive, cause the bad events are screaming in your head, then try to count the good things intentionally. Yes, intentionally, cause we might not feel like it, but for sanity to be restored we've got to count and see how awesomely blessed we have been. It's just like what happens naturally between people, all the good you've been doing might go extinct to them, the day you do one bad. Until they get reminded of how you have come through. So remind yourself intentionally and see how the happiness finds it's way back into your life.
Life should be enjoyed, worst of it all is the fact that we all die someday. So why force it before the appointment time. If its same earthly end road for every single human, then why shift yours forward cause you're sad. Say no to killing yourself either internally or suicide, there are no benefits to it. Rather we laugh at the hard times when we awake to a new day and we see possibilities to the day. Everything may not be fine now, but surely as God seats on his throne and his a father to us, Change is just around the corner. Keep the faith guys. Keep Living Regardless.
