I heard something really interesting on my audiobook today on my way to the test. It was called "Outcasts United" and was about an American soccer team of refugees (pretty interesting). It said,
"Everything in life starts small and gets bigger. Except for bad things. Those start big and get smaller."
The more I think about it, the more I realize how true that is. Bad is horrible and overwhelming at the beginning, but soon we begin to see how everything fits and how it all falls into place. I have always believed that everything happens for a reason - even when I've been horribly sad and depressed, I keep that hope.
Perhaps now, our bad situation is small enough to handle. And small enough to conquer. And small enough to leave in the past.
