Ya know....there is a harsh reality in life that we all need to understand or sometimes we are forced to understand and that is simply - that life is not always fair. It's just not. Sometimes things happen that are out of our control and sometimes things happen because of something we have done, something that we cannot take back.
I think the mistakes we make where we have to own what we have done - are the hardest to make peace with. We caused life to take a turn and we are responsible for our circumstances. And sometimes this is the hardest thing to resolve within ourselves. Sometimes we make an error and the punishment does not fit the offense. This can cause us to become bitter or resentful and finding a way to let these feelings go and make peace can be difficult.
But, if you believe in yourself and make amends for your part then you have done your part. You need to take a deep breath, let go and leave it in the past. Life goes on and you have to move with it. If you believe in a higher power, I truly believe that good will come out of your circumstances. Easy to say when you are in the midst of turmoil but you have to have faith.
I wholeheartedly believe that when one door closes another one opens. Sometimes the new door leads you to something that is even better than anything you could have imagined. Have faith.
For those struggling with an error or a mistake, know that there is always another door to walk through. You just have to open it.
