We as humans will always strive for the best. We know the difference between good and bad, right and wrong. We naturally want to do the right things. We have a pride of who we are, knowing that if we do our best, the rewards will come. Sometimes it takes a little bit longer than we expect, but we do in fact get our just rewards.
We come into this world borne of innocence - but as experience seasons us, we become hurt, we learn disappointment and thus become a little bit hardened.
Through those experiences we gain certain knowledge. We learn to give, we learn to take and we try to find a balance. Sometimes that strive for balance will lead you to places that you never thought you'd be.
Thus, another very strong applicable factor in the building blocks of learning.
And sometimes, there are losses. Ideals, beliefs and possibly...of the heart. It could be your dignity, your pride, your feelings of self worth. Losses of things that you didn't even know were slowly being stripped of you. Until you realize that you are going down.
But there is one thing that will always exist. Your cognitive decision on how to handle things. Your cognitive decision on whether or not to let the negativity pull you down even further. Your cognitive decision to see past all the intentions that are undesireable that are meant to take you down. Your cognitive decision to not let anyone else own your inner strength and your self love.
Through life's rough lessons, sometimes you just gotta take the fall. But it's up to you how you handle it.
