This too shall pass...

"A conflicted heart feeds on doubt and confusion. It'll make you question your path, your tactics, your motives. And you stare ahead and darkness is all you see; only reason and determination can pull you back from the abyss..."
- Emily Thorne, Revenge 

      Someone told me recently (and that someone is a person who I deeply care about) that I should try meditating sometime and ask myself where I am, because I am going nowhere. Not only was I offended because of that statement, but also because it was true. I mean, do I not know that already? The last thing I needed to hear was for someone to say it to me out loud and in my face. The truth hurts, there was no doubt about that, but just like everything else, I had to accept it. I had to deal with it.
   We all have problems, don't we? Some ignore it and just put on a smiley face because there was no need to waste time concerning for what is always meant to be and try to be positive about it. Others hide it within themselves and let them feel the agony. And the latter part is where they try to talk about it and try to be positive whenever there are downturns. Yet, no matter what we do, life continues to slap us across the face, whichever coping group we belong to. And we always seem to question, when will this be over, and why is this happening? We all know that as much as we want to attain happiness, there will always be conflict and challenges for us to get through.
   True enough that I am still going through the same thing for months now. But after months of much concern and despair, will all of that suffice? Clearly, I do not want to realize that I have wasted months on thinking so much about it and worrying, only to be wasted in the end. Have I done that when I could've done much more wonderful things that could've made me happy? Have I wasted enough time in my youthful life facing the cruel realities of life?
   For now, I'm telling myself, from the photo above, that this too shall pass. No matter how things get, how life can be such a bitch, how more problems can rain down upon my shoulders, they will all pass. All are temporary. I am, not only, clinging to the flickering lights of hope - that I keep on lighting - but I am also holding on, whether clasping my hands on the great unknown, to my whispered prayers, or even to the answers that I know, soon will come. As Emily Thorne had said from the show called, Revenge, only reason and determination can pull me back from the abyss....
