Nobody Cares How Difficult Your Life Is | Except Your Parent
The crazy, unfair truth about life
Take it or leave it, there are some truths about life we were not told while growing up until life itself shows us its true colour. I have listed the most critical unfair realities of life, some of which have happened to me and many others. Our parents never mentioned this to us while growing up. They made us feel very relaxed about life and gave us all our necessary needs. And life itself teaches us the following six things.
Happiness doesn’t last forever.
Nothing lasts forever, and that saying is also applicable to happiness. At one point in our lives, we are bound to be happy and wish things in life could just stay and be like that. We want everything to be sweet and go our way until life disappoints us and makes us feel sad again. Neither happiness nor sadness lasts forever. No matter how tough or good life is for you, expect the other side of it. Happiness replaces sadness and worry. Also, sadness and worries replace happiness. The earlier you know that, the better and less worried your life will be.
No one truly cares about your struggle in life except your parent.
I would have included family instead of parents, but I realize a lot of marriages have been divorced, and brothers and sisters have betrayed and neglected themselves. There is only one person that truly cares about your life and will sacrifice everything (including their life) for you. These are the people that brought you into this world, your parents. A lot of people you call your friends, loved ones, or relatives don’t care about how difficult your life is, while some are even glad it is happening to you. Keep your struggles to yourself and push through life. People are tired of your complaints but choose not to tell you.
People don’t change; they just show you their true colour.
Many people will pretend to be your friend, and some will even tell you they love you until they show you the truth and another side of them. Many will betray you for their selfish interests. Some will backbite and say bad things about you behind your back. Don’t get too sad or depressed when the person you love, trust, and rely on changes their attitude towards you. That is who they are. You just don’t know everything about them. Don’t blame yourself for falling in love or trusting people; just move on.
People are looking forward to your failure and downfall.
Don’t be surprised if I tell you some of your relatives and friends are waiting for your downfall and failure. Many of the people you save as your contacts and friends are waiting for the day things will go wrong for you. Some are eagerly waiting and checking everything you post on social media. They want you to experience a tough life just like theirs. Trust me, no matter what happens to you, never share the bad time or moment with your friends or relatives, especially on social media.
Most of your prayers won’t work your way.
When we get stuck in life, and things aren’t happening our way, the next thing we do is to turn to God and pray. The reality is that prayer works in mysterious ways, and most of the things you pray for won’t happen your way. Only a few times do we get what we ask or pray for. This doesn’t mean we shouldn’t pray or stop praying because prayer works mysteriously, and God has a better plan for us than we could imagine or ask for. The truth about life remains. Don’t get sad if your prayer doesn’t work your way. That is the untold secret our spiritual leaders don’t tell us.
Life will break you.
Men don’t cry; it is the useless thing we are often told about being strong. No matter how determined, focused, or brave you are, life will definitely break you. You are going to fail and be disappointed in life. Your plans, dreams, and aspirations won’t work sometimes. Keep moving and take note that better days are coming.
