When faced with adversity in life, it is amazing the strength we discover that we never knew we even had. They say that life will never give us more than we can handle at any one time, but we all know that there are situations where that doesn’t seem true. We are often overburdened with so much that we feel like there is no way out and definitely no light at the end of the tunnel. It is then that we have to remind ourselves that no matter what, the situation or the person is never going to break us as we will find that strength that we need to endure.
Think back over your life. How many times in the past have you been faced with a situation where it just seemed like the end? There was no way that you were going to be able to go on and certainly no way that the situation was ever going to resolve it self. Now, look in the mirror. You are still here, those situations are in the past and you are left to face another day and any of life’s challenges that it may throw your way. The only way people or things are going to break us is if we let them and we have the ultimate power.
They say that diamonds are the hardest substances on earth. Well, when we have true resolve and commitment, I would say those two things match the strength of any diamond that comes out of the ground. True commitment is formidable and when we are on the path to getting what we truly want and desire, woe is the person or thing that tries to get in our way.
People break our spirits and souls because we let them. Without that permission it is impossible for them to have an effect. Sometimes, all we need to do is give them that small opening and they begin to tear at the fabric of our soul until it is shredded. However, once we take that permission away and build the required barriers to keep their negativity out, the strength of that shell is as strong as a diamond and there is no doubt that they will not be able to break you. Your light will be as bright as any diamond.
Have a great day and remember to be the reason someone smiles today.
