Have you ever experienced a major challenge in your life, that really took a toll on you, and it was the worst thing that ever happened - However, as time went by you can look back and be really grateful that it all happened? A blessing in disguise. I have read so many inspiring stories lately of people facing the major challenges that made them turn their life around. It got me really curious if you have a story to tell.
I would love to hear from you. Your story can inspire others.
I remember a breakup I had when I was 18 years old. It was a four year long relationship that ended abruptly. You would not believe how that knocked me out. Six months of my life I was in the blackest hole. I felt so sorry for myself and I tortured myself every day holding on to a hope of us getting back together. I did not believe I was going to survive without this other person. I am chuckling as I am writing this. Looking back at this part of my life, I am so happy that it happened. It made me realise that I am not dependent on anybody else for my own happiness. It taught me to believe more in myself and it taught me how to let go of people that are not good for me, not needing to hold on to them. It made me so much stronger.
With all respect, I know that this experience is nothing compared to many challenges and circumstances that people face, however, back then it was the end of the world for me...Or so I thought...Now I am happy I went through it all, and would not wish for anything to be different. A blessing in disguise.
