Let's just face facts! The human race has given up. God's Word (the Bible) no longer means anything due to years and years of dissecting and second-guessing. We have accepted this second rate life, which we lead. Well, I cannot just accept this. I refuse to think that I have spent the last 30 years growing up, making mistakes, dealing with trauma, deaths, divorce, secrets out of family lies, sickness, addictions just to look in the mirror everyday and think to myself- This is it, this is as good as its gonna get. We should be striving for something better. I don't mean the newest or next craze regarding fashion, food, technology. We should be striving to be better. And if your like me, who has spent years or living comfortably in the muck--- getting pass the trauma is really hard. I do not deny that. But I can guarantee you, it must get worse before it can get better. Oh, and you cannot rely on instant gratification because real, positive change is not a 30-day diet plan with magic results. What I am proposing takes REAL work. And part of this REAL work requires making extremely painful decisions that may potentially hurt someone you love. When that happens, this is where Faith comes in. It's hard to trust and feel something that you cannot see, touch, or taste. But building yourself up with faith is what pulls you through the rough patch onto the good and better.
I'm tired of hearing my loved ones talk about not wanting to live everyday. I'm tired of having to remind people that suicidal injury will void life insurance policies. I am just plain tired, but even if I my weakest hours my spirit is lifted. In my completely bad days, there are sprinkles of good reminding me of the power of faith and hope in wanting something better and being better.
I am deeply sorry if you life sucks right now, but we all have choices. It's just possible that you chose wrong. Don't make the same mistakes twice! Work hard, play hard! Don't sweat the small stuff! Make a different choice. Remember when you would tell your mom or dad that "something" you were doing hurt, but you kept doing it anyway. What would they say? Well, if it hurts. Stop doing it!"
