A few years ago I came across a young man who had lost everything. He had never met his family, was living in a NYC size apartment with four strangers, just lost his job, and his health was declining. As he was telling me his story, I could not hold back my emotions. Looking at him, you would’ve never guessed. The young man had a positive attitude, spoke with confidence, dressed well, and kept a smile on his face. I asked him, how he keeps himself together: ‘simple’, he replied ‘I never want people to feel sorry for me, so I look at all the positives in my situation. I have a place to lay my head, the strangers I am living with are the family I’ve never had, a job comes and goes, and I am still alive.’ I left the conversation with a new perspective of my trials. If you’re not grateful for your troubles you’ll never know true happiness. ➖
You don’t need to be ashamed of what you’re going through and you shouldn’t look like it either.
