So many times we focus on ourselves that we forget we are not the only ones struggling, working, and fighting a hard battle. In life and especially in this day and age, to live the way we choose to be, for what we represent and stand for, is not so easy, in fact, it can be one of the toughest jobs you will ever do.
It's easy to do what the crowds do, the popular thing, or be whoever the people around you want you to be. However, far more difficult to be your true Self, live, love, and even die for what you believe in on a day to day basis. You know what I mean because you make that choice everyday when you wake up. In fact we all do this when we wake up, it's called living our lives, whether we consciously make that choice or not, we all face that choice everyday to do and be who we are. Then we go throughout the day living, working hard, and suffering willingly for our choices.
Now doesn't that sound daunting, overwhelming, and a bit too much at times!? Well it can be without the proper support, beliefs, and systems in place (which I will hopefully get to share later). But nevertheless, now that you understand and see the choices that you and everyone else has to make every single day for the rest of their lives, maybe then can and will we show and express more compassion for ourselves and others.
Bottom line, "Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle"! Wishing you all the best on your long, hard, and prosperous Life's journey, and may God continue to bless us all...
