I am going to cover this very swiftly. What to do when you ultimately hit the rock bottom of life? When you have nothing to lose except some memories of dismal incidents? What.to.do?
Well, I am no therapist, but in my life I have been through a lot of ups and downs and I have used various kinds of ways to get rid of these situations. But sometimes, life is just immovable. Truth is, we all have our battles to fight. Maybe it is against poverty or a failed relationship but life never stops and nor does our struggle. So given below are my three little rules to follow whenever life tries to weigh me down. I admit, I do not always follow them religiously. Most of the time, whenever I am unsuccessful, I try to distract myself by consuming too much curb or doing online shopping. Yet I am writing them all down, in case I hit myself with a shiny metal object and lost my power of cognition: D
First of all, if you have nothing to lose it actually exhibits that you have everything to gain. So celebrate! Take a deep breath and start preparing. At the end of the day, it’s the endeavor of life which is more pleasurable. Once you learn to appreciate the process of hardworking than nothing will bore you, I guarantee.
Furthermore, despite of all the negativity and down hills, you still need to take care of yourself. A sister in my college (I went to a missionary college) used to advice us about the significance of taking care of oneself. She used to say, if you do not have a penny in your pocket you will not be able to loan your friend anything. Similarly, if you are unable to take care of yourself, you will never be able to take care of your loved ones.
Lastly, my friend, always remember that life is a privilege and you should treat it like that. The concept is really simple actually- If you want to live a good life, act like a good person. Give your best at whatever you are doing. That way even if you fail people will still recognize you as an extraordinary person. In short, try to accomplish things but if you can’t, at least enjoy the process and be happy about it. Be glad that you received a chance to perform; maybe some other people were dreaming about this opportunity.
All in all, live your life shamelessly! Choose your battle and fight for it. Because my friend, if kung fu panda can do it-You can do it too!
