Someone came into my life recently who is a real downer. It's part of the reason I've been so grinchy lately and can't think of anything but vacation.
I'm sorry that bad things happen to people and if it were within my power to stop them or to fix them I would. But, honestly, we've all got a sad story to tell. We can walk around and constantly tell it, bringing ourselves and everyone around us down even more or we can consider it a lesson learned, pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off and move on.
Trust me, no one knows better than I do that moving on isn't always the easiest thing to do. Some days will be harder than others and you will backslide. The important thing to remember is that life goes on and you need to move on with it.
This person has talked non-stop about their story and used it as a reason and/or excuse for everything. This person doesn't know my story and they never will. They also don't know that if I put my sad story up against theirs in a contest I would win. Well, maybe it would be more appropriate to say that I would lose because my story is way sadder.
However, I will never enter that contest because I don't want the sad/bad things to define who I am.
What do you think?
