Sometimes you feel that the heavens will fall down on your shoulders and the earth seems to open up and swallow your whole being. This is when you will know who your true friends are. I realized when one is undergoing a major crisis in his/her life, everything seems to go wrong. The car seems to breakdown at rush hour, the electricity bill seems higher, parents get sick, you get sick in the middle of the night, the Banker forgot to tell you certain charges on your loan application and the Landlord decides to sell the house you’ve been staying… (happened last month)
You feel so screwed you thought you’re going to drop dead and no one will know.
But somehow I do believe things eventually will work and The Power works in such mysterious ways. Actually in weird ways, true friends will suddenly appear and offer assistance in all sort of ways – job offers, financial assistance, business opportunities, and most of all, moral support. Suddenly things began to look brighter and more promising.
I could never thank enough all those people have given their support in so many ways and in no way I could ever repay their kindness except with gratitude. I found that strangers could become friends, some old friendships are reinforced and relatives rediscovered.
My mom told me once that life is like a scar. It was painful when you first got the cut. It’s raw and bleeding, but somehow with time it will heal. When it heals, the scar would still be there and you will always remember when and how you first got it.
This is what one should do at the moment… nurse their wound and wait for it to heal. I am not quite sure how long It’ll be there to hurt you but I know it will always leave a Scar there to serve as a reminder of what your life is all about…
