Life Lesson From A Throwback8:00 AM
Life Lesson From A ThrowbackI have this beautiful life lesson from a throwback recently. I browsed my old travel photos for a post I plan. I came across some taken when I had...well, just had my heart broken.
I was surprised because I looked...normal and happy.
I couldn't bare to look at myself, not even in photos, during that time. Because I felt so ugly and "not good enough". I think everyone who's been left for someone else would feel that way.
I didn't want to see the pain that's in my eyes though I had a smile plastered on my face for the camera.
Now, I look at those photos from a different lens; I can still remember the pain I was going through, but not feeling the pain anymore, and seeing only beauty. Looking at the photos, I see there was no pain in my eyes and hey, what a sweet smile I had on!
The beauty I saw in me was beyond the physical. I saw a girl deeply hurt and braving the odds with only faith as a weapon.
Faith that one day, the pain will go away. Faith that one day, the wounds will be healed. Faith that one day, He will turn my mourning into dancing. Faith that a day will come when I'll look back and I'll do myself proud for making it through. And I did.
I realized that only I can see that beauty because only I felt that pain. And it's very important that we should see that side of ourselves because no one else will.Such a beautiful life lesson from a throwback that was.
I hope that whatever it is you're going through right now that makes you feel inadequate, ugly or worthless will soon end.
I hope that you keep that little ounce of faith in your pocket because I can testify that your mourning will turn into dancing.
I hope that you still look at yourself in the mirror every day and tell yourself you're beautiful despite the pain you see in your eyes, the sorrow you feel in your heart, and the tears falling as you say it.Because my friend, you are. Believe that you are.
What lessons have you learn from a throwback?
