It's good to see that you posted & considering some advices from different members.
Really, good to see you're back
Just want you to know that even for me, there are non stop trials. Life is really like a wheel. Sometimes I'm up, sometimes I'm down. The "wheel of
life" as they say.
In my own experience, nothing very bad last very long & nothing very good last very long either.
After the rain, it shines. Every time I am in a bad situation, I try my best to be calm; I always think that, "this one will pass". For me, it's
like a challenge, the important thing is "how" we are going to cope up & deal with it.
You're right; it's never too late to start again. From what I read from your post:
Three major problems you stated, (to my own understanding, I could be wrong)
1. Motivation - Could be anything that you dreamed of that will make your life fulfilled. Sometimes, we never really know what we want or the one that
will make us happy. Sure it's vague. It seems that everything is not permanent.
Sometimes, we lose too many effort & time yet the one that we are really looking for is just there, near or beside us.
2. Your personal strategy - For myself, I learned it the hard way. I had beginner's luck, I also failed many times (and costly). So it's not really
easy to say on what strategy are we going to use. Sometimes, simple rule of the thumb works. Sometimes, experience & luck combined works. Sometimes,
it could be just plain luck. A little bit of this & that etc., this is the one that worked for me.
I can compare it to that of a Flu or cold virus that keeps mutating, so that a total vaccine is somewhat difficult to have. Same with life strategy,
always a different situation, different timing etc. Even a strategy that have worked may not necessarilly work to a similar situation in life. (For a
lot of reasons). So maybe the right thing to do is that we must learn to adopt to anything. Being dynamic & not static.
3. I am not quite clear with your description, but I guess it is something to do with the unknown? Things which you have not yet accepted? Or maybe
not really found your real self? I am not sure.
Again, my own experience, sometimes that answer & solutions to all of these, may not come at the same time. It may not come immediately. Sometimes it
takes a long time. Sometimes it may not even come at all.
The above are just my personal opinion about coping up with life. I don’t claim that they are correct. It worked for me at least. Also, my opinion
above has nothing to do with religion.
