reality bites

When everything goes wrong, it is normal to be frustrated and to get mad. There are things in life that we need to fathom. Life has its ups and downs and we have to learn the roller coaster ride in order for us to keep going. Indeed it is hard to cope and to accept the realities of life. It is surely upsetting when all your efforts have become futile in the long run, when you poured all your resources and gain nothing in the end, when you need to let go of someone because of some circumstances even if it really hurts, when you express your love to someone who does not even care at you at all, when you feel all alone and nobody seem to care…These are the common trials in life which can either make or break us. People sometimes question God for all these trials and blamed God for breaking them apart. I understand somehow why…perhaps because of anger and pain. I believe that the very essence of life is being able to stand up after falling many times, being optimistic at all times and finding ways to become a better person everyday. God has a reason for everything. He breaks us to make us whole again. The challenges we are facing might break our world but surely will strengthen us. These challenges are the foundation of our life experiences because a life that is so perfect is idle, so routine and meaningless.
