It made me think how much like life this was.
No matter who you are, no matter where you live, no matter what you do, every once in a way, things will go wrong. That best friend you thought you could count on, no matter what, will fail to come through. That promotion you were hoping for and which you know you deserve will go to the nerd who is very good at sucking up. Health will fail when there was no reason for it to. People will completely misunderstand what you said, twist it and cut you off from their life. Even if you have worked very hard at something and given it all you have got, you will still not get anticipated results. That guy you thought you clicked with and who you thought might be 'The one' will turn out to be just another one after all. Same for the woman who you thought was 'special' and who you were hoping to make a life with. Sometimes, she might walk off with another guy. Sometimes all these happen all together. But sometimes, they space out. But you can be sure, each one of us, has our share of disappointments, failures and our share of 'what could have been'.
Then I thought about a good friend. He had this as his status message on facebook
There comes a point in life when you realise who matters , who never did , who wont anymore ,and who always will . So don't worry about people from the past , there is a reason why they didn't make it to your future .It struck me as very true!
After I have become a published author, life has changed for me in many ways. I am still the same person, but the way people look at me and perceive me has completely changed. Sadly I have lost some people whom I considered very good friends. But on the positive side, I know know who my real friends are and I feel so good that I have them.
Things change. Sometimes they change suddenly but sometimes it happens slowly. No matter how good or how bad the situation is right now, it will change.
We all have our clouds. But what we should remember is sunshine is there right behind it.
We just cannot see it yet.
