“We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope. ” Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
I guess that this post is going to be one “in review”.
I am not going to fill this blog with a lengthy sob story or how it relates, because I’m not going to waste my time about it.
But it appears a bit necessary to repeat that life is not perfect.
Life is not ever going to be all peaches and cream. If it was, then everyone would have pie and there would be no one left to eat cake.
Disappointment strikes us all at some point in our lives. Some more often than others. But what I am going to focus on is the fact that sometimes when we want to know something, we don’t always get the answers that we were actually looking for. Or we get the responses that we were not expecting.
So then what? What are you going to do?
Most people would actually dust themselves off and press on to find an answer, if they have received none. Others would take up the understanding that they were not meant to have the answers that they really wanted deep down. And of course, they are crushed. But they also move on.
Sitting around and pouting actually gets people NOWHERE. Being rude and acting like a child doesn’t either. That is assuming that you are not still a child. I can honestly say that I am simply astonished on the amount of people out there who are adults that still cry and whine like children whenever they do not get their way.
Either find the answer another way or just move on and forget about it and maybe hope for the day that the answer will come your way.
But for those who get answers to their burning questions, and it ends up being something that they do not like or care for? SUCK IT UP!
Dwelling on the fact that you got shut down won’t get you what you wanted in the first place. In fact, it will only separate you even further from succeeding in your path of knowledge.
Treating others poorly who give you answers you don’t want to hear makes you look like such an undesirable person. And what you will probably end up doing is make yourself look like you don’t deserve what you want. And it will not matter what your worth is or isn’t, you will have destroyed that by your own selfish and immature actions.
Get over it. Life will sometimes tell you NO!
Pick yourself up and find another way or learn to accept the things that you honestly cannot change as stated in the common and popular “Serenity Prayer” that many of us know by heart.
GROW UP because others around you already have. Time to live your life like responsible and sensible adults.
