Sometimes, life is giving us some important lessons exactly when you’re less expecting them. Sometimes, it’s easier to live in your dreams, to choose to fool yourself than to face the truth, the reality. Is so simple to live in your own world, your own bubble where everything is perfect, where nothing bad happens, when he’s next to you and all yours, when nothing can ruin your happiness.
And that’s exactly why I’m thankful when life or the Universe or God or whoever is doing it is waking me up, is opening my eyes and forces me to face the truth, the reality, and not some fairy tales that are easier to handle.
Yes, waking up from your fairy tale can have a bittersweet taste.
Has a bitter taste when you realize that you were fooling yourself. Has a bitter taste when you see how fast your world can change completely. Is bitter when you’re simply walking on a street and life is forcing you to see the difference between what’s in your head and what is real straight in front of your eyes. And you have no choice but to face it and accept it.
But this is why it’s sweet at the same time. Because this way you won’t end up being hurt by your own illusions. Which is not something that you’re planning. We’re human beings and sometimes we forget to think with our brains, and we choose to think with our hearts.
It might have a bitter taste at the beginning. But in the end, you have to understand that everything happens with a reason. And if life chooses to force you to face some truths, good. Be thankful. See the big picture and be happy that you have time to not lose yourself in illusions. Be grateful that you can change your reality and make it better instead of living in a dream.
Yes, waking up from your fairy tale can have a bittersweet taste. But you’re the one who chooses how it will be at the end: bitter or sweet? And after you decide on what kind of future you want for your soul, after you decide to face the truth instead of lying yourself, you’ll be able to turn your reality into a happy one instead of choosing to live in a fake one.
Be brave enough to face the truth and strong enough to make the right choice.
