The Big Let Down

Updated: Jan 30, 2020

Reality is, not everyone keeps his or her promise.

Reality is, people will let you down

Reality is, your most trusted will abandon you when you need them the most.

Reality is, life can, and often does present itself as one big let down.

One disappointment after another

One challenge after another

One frustration after another

Where have all the good people gone I cry out to myself?

It’s easy to lose hope

It’s easy to feel helpless

It’s easy to question the meaning and purpose of it all

It’s easy to lose faith

It’s easy to stop trusting

It’s easy to go on living in fear

To be gripped by bitterness and resentment

Tragedy and despair

Life makes it easy to give up on your self and on others.

But yet there is something that keeps burning deep inside,

A flame that needs to be fanned

Flickers of hope, that won’t let you throw in the towel

Something whispering in your ear, telling you to get up, dust yourself off and go again.

Telling you that there is still much to live for

That there is much work to be done

That the world needs you

That there is much still to be grateful for!

When enveloping yourself in darkness, it’s easy to lose your sight

It’s easy to create barriers between yourself and the light in the world

It’s easy to forget that the sun doesn’t stop shining on the blind.

So perhaps what we need is clarity.

To clear our eyes

To shed the excess baggage and return to simplicity;

To break down all our barriers, fears and insecurities,

And develop our ability to not only see the good; but also be the good.

Accepting the burden of life, knowing full well that it was never meant to be easy, but you were instead meant to be stronger.

That experiencing hardship is never a reason to stop loving.

Because in the end, it’s Love and only Love, that conquers all.

And as fluffy at that may sound, you can’t escape the fact and reality, that it’s actually true.
