All my life I used to dread times when the up ended. I could live with bad things happening one at a time, but all my life if something bad happens then it's all things at once. That makes it ten times harder to deal with the problem itself, 'cause I know there's nine more waiting for me and it eats me up. It gets just too overwhelming.
However, over time I kind of learned to live with this. I'm enjoying the ups when they come and I step by step learn to live with the downs. Now I try to take these failures and misfortunes and see them like life lessons. Everything happens for a reason. Maybe what now seems like the worst setback, will one day turn out to be the most valuable lesson I have ever learned in my entire life. These bad things - doesn't matter if they're big or small - just make me smarter and stronger. Failures make me stop for a little while and get me looking from a different angle. When my favourite thing breaks, I learn to realize that things are just things, doesn't matter how much I like them. When I get a bad mark from the exam, I learn that if I want to succeed, I need to work hard and not just depend on getting good questions. When I fall down and get hurt, I learn that I need to be more careful on my steps (literally and metaphotically) or maybe walk slower (as long as I don't stop).
Failure after failure I get better at life. And things that used to feel like tragedies, now seem like little bumps on the road that I just pass through without looking back.
