One day, I was having a talk with my friend. We were discussing how we turn out right. Well, what do we mean by turn out right? Didn’t become as people we didn’t like. Enjoying our life.
I thought for a moment. For me, I believed that there’s more to this life. I didn’t allow my life to stop there. I kept moving. I probably didn’t give up on myself regardless of what happened in my life. I believed my life is more than this. I didn’t loose hope. I refused to put label such as victim or survivor or dysfunctional on myself.
There are no greater treasures than the highest human qualities such as compassion, courage, and hope.
Not even tragic accident or disaster can destroy such treasures of the heart.Daisaku Ikeda
What have I trained?
I trained my heart and life.
I trained it to refuse giving in. I trained it to seek for help. I trained it to seek for an alternative. I trained it to surround myself with people who can lead me higher. I constantly seek for things that motivate and inspire me to keep going.
You have to keep breaking your heart until it opens.Rumi
Only then I learned life was more than I thought it was. Life was much more than I could have imagine. I could take my life to places where I want to be. If I know that’s something I really want in my life.
At the times, it might seems easier to give in. Sometime it might feel easier to give up on myself and life. However, I couldn’t live with such consequence and reality that I have given up my life.
