My favourite quote is “When life knocks you down, calmly get back up, smile and say ‘You hit like a bitch.” And I truly believe that. But, sometimes the knock is just that much too hard, and that much too difficult to walk past. So what do you do then? There isn’t a quote for that eventuality. And even though so many of us have knocks in life, there are people who get knocked time and time again. I have two such friends, and I dearly wish that there was something I could do to alleviate their burden, but there isn’t. So all I can do is stand on the sidelines and watch. And hope they will remain standing.
I have seen on so many occasions that life is very unfair. And sometimes seem outright cruel to some people. There are also a great many people who have so much going for them, yet they are so unhappy and want more to fill that void of emptiness in their lives. If only we can somehow distribute the good more equally. That would help somewhat.
I suppose all we can hope for is that at some point the tables will turn and the suffering will become less, and the blessings will increase.
Until such a time comes, I will do my level best to be available for my dear friends.
