“They say the best revenge is happiness. Truth is, people who are truly happy, don’t see revenge- they are too busy being happy!”

Life has not promised any of us goodness in it. Life is full of turbulence. It needs someone who will have to understand, instead of complaining. One of the challenges we face in life is forgiveness. As easy as it is to say I forgive you it’s not that easy to convince your heart to agree with your mind.

No one is perfect and that is not a problem. If you can’t be perfect then be good, clever, ready and willing. One thing for sure is that you can be hurt or disappointed by your family members, best friend and other relationships you are exposed to. You have to be ready for that time before reality catches up with you. Expect change from those you love because, there is thing called true colours in each and every one of us.

Revenge and hatred can make one aggressive and cruel. Instead of moving on with our lives why do we choose to hold grudges? Remember if you hold a grudge against someone, every time you see that person you get angry to a point where you cannot control yourself and your emotions. That can really affect your health condition, our minds need to rest. Imagine what you do to yourself when thinking too much, you even get headaches.

Let’s learn to accept the unexpected in life, so we can be able to let go of things easily. “Don’t waste your time in anger, regrets, worries and grudges. Life is too short to be unhappy.” —Roy T.B
