Sometimes it feels that it ‘never rains but it pours’. One thing comes after another and you feel beaten down by the harsh winds of life. You begin to feel that it isn’t fair as you compare your circumstances to those of others who seem to be coasting easily through life. Take this battered grass - it’s nearly over and one more strong wind might just snap it. You know the proverb about the straw that breaks the camel’s back and you wonder how much more you can take… genuinely.
- ‘Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it’ - Charles R Swindoll
- ‘It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop’ - Confucius
- ‘The world breaks everyone, and afterward, some are strong at the broken places’ - Ernest Hemingway
Words are easy but coping in the middle of crises is not.
