There is so much to learn in life... i feel that we get to learn the most when we are surrounded by unpleasant situations...cuz its mostly at such times when we get to know our true CHARACTERS.
It is extremely tough at that time...to go through the pain of it all... but if we don't go through such experiences.. our life would stagnate...
Sometimes, we avoid reality because we feel that we don't have the strength to face it... but if we learn to face reality, if we learn to face our weak areas, if we learn to confront our flaws and graciously admit our faults, life will be real.
Most of us escape from facing our true selves because it's not as nice as our fake identities are.
It differs from person to person... I'm learning to gradually face my true self. it's not so good as I thought it would be... but what the hell.. at least I'm learning more about my inner self.
Its kind of challenging and slightly difficult to accept your true self because... you've been conditioned to have other identities given to you by other people in your life. Some of us ignore our faults, others may push them away while a few may try to overcome their weak areas by working on them.
Our life is like a road... we come across flowers and we also come across thorns. The flowers are quite temporary... but if you go near the thorns, you may get pricked, bruised and hurt.. but when you pass through those thorns, you will be more aware of how to go through the toughness of life and you will know how tough you are from - the Inside.
