You ever sit and feel so alone. It’s just you in this dark cold a** space. You turn your head, look far beyond the horizon and nothing. You even shout with all your might but nothing echo’s back. At that very moment when you notice that you are truly by yourself, you feel that the world is crumbling around you. You are trapped. There is no way out.
There is always a way out. In fact, you have many ways out. Think of these as options. With every option/possibility there is an opportunity that is always greater than its consequences. It may take some sacrifice but that doesn’t mean it is always a negative one.
Sacrifice is when you surrender or give up one or more things for the sake of something else. This sacrifice could in fact be very positive, but it takes more self-focus and work to get there. Sometimes it just means you can’t do it at this moment because the core of today’s problem is to get to a level or the next level of opportunity. Once you reach the ulterior end that you seek, then you can retract back to what you sacrificed much later. See? There is nothing negative about that. College students who graduate top of the class are great examples of this. Good grades come with many sacrifices. Especially to those whose skills are not naturally acquired. It took a lot of studying, library time, group sessions, meeting with the professor, asking a million questions in class for a greater comprehension of the material to get the grade they felt they deserved. This meant less parties or going out with the friends and hanging out. They prioritized their wants and needs in exchange for the grade that makes them stand out amongst their peers when it comes to applying for a higher educational or occupational opportunity. Sacrifices are not always rewarded. It takes effort, hard work, many attempts, failures, wins, lessons and growth to truly understand what is that you set aside in order to achieve greater. Like my previous example hard work and dedication to their primary focus in securing their bag or options and sacrifice has presented them with so many eye-opening opportunities that their path is much brighter.
The same applies with life and fitting in. You are the weird, quirky but an awkward type of person or you are different. Different not singling out one particular “type” of person but in a way where you don’t see eye-to-eye with those around you so typically you either continue being you or “blend” in. Blending in is not living your truth however sometimes pretending to be something else even though it makes you uncomfortable (sacrifice) in that moment is safe. Not that you are in any danger or anything but safe as in being able to exist in a world with so much hate and sometimes this evil exists within your own environment, so you tend to blend in order to safeguard yourself from it. That is okay. There is nothing wrong with it. Every option has an opportunity. Self-evaluation, awareness, knowing your truth, accepting yourself and your circumstances are all things you need in order to live your truth. These lead to even bigger rewards like happiness, peace and love but not without sacrifice.
Point is you are not trapped, stuck or alone. There is always another path you can take that will lead you somewhere. Don’t be mistaken, it’s not always the place you want to be however because we are awesome human beings with a great mind, we can conquer battles with all our might and WIN. It just takes sacrifice, hard work, dedication, focus and believing in your ability to succeed.
