Most people hold back goodness because their hearts are burdened
When you lighten what your heart carries, when you worry less and when you exhibit a cheerful character, you find it really easy to put smiles on people’s faces. Life is a walk of shame. People would only show you what they need you to see. They would keep discrete their pains, cries, struggles, perseverance and most of all knowledge, and show you how stronger they’ve grown. This is why many are deceived or let me say made to believe that it’s easy to get whatsoever you want in life. Behind every diamond you see, is dirt, mud, stones, gravel, water and sand rubbed against it. You can’t want to be successful if you want to be lazy, you can’t be in need of fame if you don’t want to sacrifice one or two values of yours.
So I ask you today, what’s your shame? what do you think you have been through that no one has? Why withhold a smile? why cause others pain because you’ve been through same pain? Why neglect someone in need because you have it all? why curse a generation you would never live to know? why do things because of others not because its what you want? why do you want to be soaked in wrong?
Your shame should strengthen you. It should make you learn and grow. You should never see your shame as shame but as an upliftment, because when you heal from its pieces you can never break in that form again. Your shame should bring out the good and best in you.
what shame of yours have you changed to something good and tangible in your life. Would love to know, share with us in the comment box below. Thank you.
