Sometimes, if you work hard enough, you can get what you want. But most of the time, what you want and what you get are two different things: Sometimes, God breaks our spirit to save our soul. Sometimes, God sends pain so we can be stronger. Although we can can't have everything we want, we can want everything we have. That's life.
The important thing is not to be bitter over life's difficulties. We should learn to let go of the past and recognize that everyday won't be sunny, and when we find ourselves lost in the darkness and despair, remember -- It's only in the black of the night that we can see the stars, and those stars will lead us back home. So, we should not be afraid to make mistakes, to stumble, to fall. Because most of the time, the greatest rewards come from doing things that scare us the most. And be optimistic to all the things that surrounds you in your everyday life. That each and everyone of us, even the teenie-tinniest being living on this planet is loved by the one greater that anyone in the universe.
Another thing is, we don't look for love because it's lonely to be watching movies alone, because it's sad to eat meals on your own, because it's nice to cuddle up with someone on rainy days. We look for love because we want to be accepted, for the sloppy ways we dress, for the clumsy way we eat our meals, for bad hair days and for the simplicity in us. Love is an act of acceptance, that with all our imperfections, we are accepted and loved.
