Cope: (v) to struggle or deal, especially on fairly even terms or with some degree of success
In an attempt to make ourselves look very noble, we end up creating scenarios which are often intolerable.
When the word “struggle” is introduced into the human mindset, the simplicity that life was intended to have is sacrificed to chase one little ball down the street because we fear there will never be another ball.
It could be one of our greater weaknesses.
Matter of fact, we love to watch movies and documentaries about human beings who struggle with their life circumstances. We tear up because we realize how courageous their efforts might seem.
Yet, often the bravest thing you do in your life is to stop struggling and find a place where you can rest your soul, and cope better.
Yes. It’s not so much “coping with” as it is “coping better.” To do so, you may find yourself needing to abandon foolish adventures which have already slapped you in the face so many times with disappointment that you’re nearly silly.
Life is not meant to be tough.
It sometimes appears that way because it isn’t fair. But when it isn’t fair, it doesn’t do any good to hang around and try to tear down the wall.
Instead, walk awhile–until you find a door or a window.
