The more you live in this world, the more you learn. By living I do not mean the number of years you live, I mean the more you put yourself out there with your hands wide open embracing the bullets of unpleasant events that life shoots at you. You learn things that you would have never wanted to learn, you change and you learn, whatever the lesson is, wether it is strength, learning to trust people, the importance of positivity, faith.. etc. It changes the way you think, the way you act with people, your perspectives, your believes basically it changes who you are.
I have learnt that the further you are from your comfort zone, and from those who make you feel better about yourself and motivate you, then the harder the bullets will hit you. However, you refuse to learn those valuable lessons because you want to go back to the simple life you once lived. Its a damn shame if you constantly refuse to accept the facts, if you constantly live in the past, because the truth is time will never go back, even if you could go back, you will be a changed person.
However, when you seize the pain of these experiences you unleash an incredible new you that is a lot stronger, with that strength you can sculpt who you are and what your beliefs are. With all the unpleasantness and the pain and the endless feeling of sadness and frustration, you gain perspective, experiences and power. It might take a struggle, sometimes you feel like you cannot live through it, but in the end you survive to become a new and even better you, that shines the world with the unlimited beauty that you have gained.
