I know a lot of us think that people are brought to this Earth to make our lives easier and that they are here to serve us. We are so WRONG on so many levels. They were brought here to teach us, enlighten us, and help us along our journey in life, but they are not here FOR us. They are here for themselves and we are here for ourselves. In the end, we are in control of what happens to us by how we respond to it.
If we ever stumble and fall (literally and figuratively) it is not the job of our loved ones to come to our rescue, but our jobs to lift ourselves back up again. We should not rely solely on others to make ourselves better or happy, that is all coming from within all of us. It is not any one else’s job to provide us the safety net that we could and should do for ourselves. We are so much stronger than we think we are and we are so much more resilient than we think we are. We were brought here to live a joyous life but that takes initiative on our part to love and take care of our own souls first. If we allow ourselves to truly, truly love who we are, the help we do receive will be filled with pure love and be filled with no resentment. So let’s help ourselves a bit more instead of relying on others to make us feel better because remember, its our job to do that for ourselves! – Peace and Love
