Life Breaks Us All… So Said Hemingway

Life breaks us all and afterward many are strong at the broken places.Β 

~ Earnest Hemingway

Life… Did something pass by in the back of your mind as you read the quote? Hold that thought a minute, have you ever been in a position when you felt like your mind should go to shreds and you should probably be dead but nope, ain’t happening today. Why isn’t it happening? Because life has other plans. They say, “what doesn’t break you makes you stronger” and yep it does but before that happens we feel like, “bloody damn, I might as well be dead and nothing will change.” You can’t be anymore right, nothing will change if you just die. But that is the irony or greatness of our lives, we live on. πŸ™‚ I am glad you lived on over all the weak points of your life when life brought you down on your knees and made you feel worthless even, I am so GLAD.

There’s power in you, as long as you are alive you have the power to change things for the better, as long as you do not let your problems and the world overpower you in your mind. That is where your original battlefield lies, in your mind. Β Let go of the illusion that everything must go as you planned and you will win half the battle after that all that’s left is win over your thoughts and keep going.

life happens to us all, how we deal with it makes our stories a lot different than others. what makes it even better is the capability to reach out and be there when the same happens to someone else.

What I am trying to say is, do not let your past (yes it happened) but you are more than that, you are powerful and you need to change your sails directions now, the sea is stormy and you want to survive it so you can live to tell the tale. Let your strength take over for you, it is the ability to keep going on when you are already tired and want to quit, it is the ability that keeps you going when you think you can’t anymore. You know, things happen out of nowhere and then we are left to deal with the outcome just like the seas get stormy all of a sudden and all you are left with is your boat and a pedal and that is all you have to work with until you find a shore or a bigger boat finds you, just imagine throwing your hands in the air and screaming happily because you, yes YOU made it. Isn’t that amazing?

Wow writing this, all I want to do now is, whenever I face storms in my sea I am going to imagine that moment when I can throw my hands in air and scream because I made it. I am gonna do that now for all the past victories that I forgot to celebrate because I was too stupid to think of them that way. Yippie Β ./

Have fun everyone & enjoy your victories. πŸ™‚

Life. Earnest Hemingway
Whatever happens, get on with it. Make things happen to you..

  1. Beautiful article, dear. pain indeed makes one strong. I’ve experienced depression first hand and I know how hard it can be for anyone to take the emotional pain and the end result is always the same- it makes you really tough.
    Everything in life is necessary, even pain. That way we know where we come from and where we have to go.
    Have a great day dear!

    1. Wow… your last lines are awesome. It’s really amazing what pain can teach us. πŸ™‚ Depression is bad but once you figure out how to get out of it and get on with life, you become someone strong and wonderful.
      Have a wonderful night dear. Sweet dreams to you. πŸ™‚

  2. You hit the nail right on the head with this post. You described perfectly how I felt after living through taking care of my sick mum. And you’re absolutely right: instead of feeling upset about what happened, we should appreciate our strength and celebrate having made it through our hardships. Great post, as usual πŸ™‚ Thank you for sharing!

    1. Thank you so much for commenting Samantha πŸ™‚ If we really look at it maybe when our elders tell us to not dwell on our pain and look towards what we are accomplishing, maybe they are so totally right and we are too naive not to believe them. I am glad you liked this post.

      1. It’s difficult to learn from our mistakes, but it is more difficult to learn from other people’s mistakes. I think we all need our own experience to fully understand the truth behind the wise words of our elders πŸ™‚

          1. haha yup we will be elders and will get to say, “because I said so.” lol Life is fun πŸ™‚ Thanks for commenting and having a conversation Samantha πŸ™‚ Means a lot to me.

  3. You are absolutely right. Being pleased with yourself for overcoming hard obstacles in life is so important. I know because I’ve faced my own obstacles. Even being pleased that you’ve gotten through another day is sometimes victory enough I think. This really is a wonderful piece of writing :).

    1. yes dear sometimes getting through the day feels like an accomplishment.. It’s just bad if we keep making ourselves feel down for something or something which doesn’t make much difference to our life instead of giving attention to what we have done through the day. πŸ™‚ Thanks dear πŸ™‚

  4. Oh yes, Hemangini. Pain reminds us were humans, and it reminds us to be human. Human enough to care, human enough to mourn, and human enough to brush of the dust and stand up again. πŸ™‚

    1. I love how you wrote it, human enough to brush off the dust and stand up again πŸ™‚ That instills my hope. πŸ™‚
      By the way you changed your gravatar picture? You look lovely in the new one too. <3

      1. Been through a lot of life’s pain, too, maybe that’s why I was able to write those. πŸ™‚

        Yes, I changed it. The old one was taken more than 5 years ago that is why I have to update it. πŸ™‚

        Thank you so much! ❀😘

        1. Isn’t that wonderful, some changes. πŸ™‚ I think going through some pain is necessary in life so we learn and respect others and maybe show them kindness when needed, no? It feels good if someone cares.. Your welcome my dear. πŸ™‚

  5. Yes I would like to say something.
    Pain. Make it worth it.
    Yes! This is beautiful.
    Pain is not always worth.
    Yes! Making it Worth.
    Is the Art of Living.
    That shall make it Worth.
    And Pain shall not be of any Worth.
    The whole Worth shall be of some Worth.
    This Post is Worth.
    What more Worth shall I Express more Worth than this.
    Its just Worthful.
