I feel like I'm not built for this. If life was a boxing match I wouldn't be boxing because I'm not a boxer..
I didn't sign up for this...
I am not a "new ager" guy by any means but I am nevertheless very interested in spiritual and metaphysical questions, answers and theories.
Right now, I am reading some very good books addressing those profound questions about our souls, WHY we are, where we come from, who we REALLY are
and so forth.
According to this school of spirituality, we all CHOOSE our lives beforehand, we actually often seek out difficult lives because we see them as a
challenge and as a way to learn.
You MIGHT have chosen the life you are living right now BECAUSE of those obstacles. Any hardship, as cruel as it might be, might be planned/arranged
It is like a play that was written beforehand, not some "boring" play which starts with your birth and ends with you death. It's a play where many
situations, problems etc. are woven in to help you grow and understand.
Do NOT focus only on the negative consequences of whatever will happen in your life, but look behind those things and find that you can actually learn
and grow from those things.
So...ironically, you might have indeed (and I mean literally!) "signed up for this"...so it would be a shame you will miss the opportunity to play
this play and then not get the benefit/growth out of it you were seeking from it when you "signed up" for it.
Edit: To make this clear: While overall directions of our lives are planned and arranged, we STILL have free will and can turn things in different
directions. I guess THIS is actually the challenge.
