The day you will engrave “This too shall pass” in your mind and in your heart, you have succeeded.
“This too shall pass” is a mantra for you to understand that everything in this life is temporary. Your wealth, your health, your status, your relationships…you name it; all is bound to change.
For everything there is a season. A time to cry and a time to laugh. A time to tear down and a time to build up.
Everyone goes through seasons. You are not alone.
Storms Will Come…
When your storm comes, it might feel like you will never get out of it. You will feel like the world has turned against you because nothing is going your way.
Your endless thoughts of why things are not going your way will shroud you with sadness and depression.
You might be lost trying to find your purpose and career life, but you can’t seem to find some direction.
Or you have found it but it has been difficult to accomplish it. You flunked those exams and screwed the interviews.
Perhaps your finances are savage.
Or you have lost a loved one and your heart aches beyond words.
Your life might be upside down – that is your storm.
Whatever your storm is, just remember…
This Too Shall Pass
Embrace your seasons and especially the stormy seasons because that is where most of us breakdown.
We are usually broken because we deny the hard-truth that life is ever-changing. Our hearts get attached to the way things are and it does not expect any changes. But eventually, change comes, storms come and we succumb into depression.
Why do you let your entire being into depression and endless sorrow?
Depression lies, it robs you of your happiness and that little hope to say “this too shall pass”.
Do not give up on yourself because for the many things that are happening around you are out of your control. Life just threw those things on your plate and you are forced to swallow. You have no choice, in as much as you did not want it that way, you have no choice my dear friend but to accept it and pat your chest saying “this too shall pass”.
Never make a permanent decision based on a temporary storm.. No matter how raging the billows are today, remind yourself: “This too shall pass!” – T. D. Jakes
You will wear out your heart by running away from that reality. You will wear out your brain if you try to find answers for everything in your life. It is okay that you do not know, you need not figure everything out.
No hardship or misery is here to last forever.
When your time to cry comes, cry but remind yourself that it is but temporary because that is the truth, it is temporary.
Expect trouble as an inevitable part of life and when it comes, hold your head high, look it squarely in the eye and say “I will be bigger than you. You cannot defeat me.” Then repeat to yourself the most comforting of all words , “This too shall pass.” – Ann Landers
Until next time, Chao.
