Don’t Be Fearful of Endings
You know the saying “all good things come to an end”? I used to hate that saying with a passion. The optimist in me always loves to believe that good things don’t come to an end when it is meant for you, but the older I get the more I begin to understand the true meaning in this saying.
No one really wants anything good to end. We all love to feel good and we all want good things to happened to us. Feeling good is one of the most natural human desires, but that is not how life is. Life has a ton of ups and downs and for some of us, the downs can feel very frequent. A few years ago, I was battling some major depression accompanied with suicidal thoughts. I think that time in my life was the lowest I have ever felt but eventually that period of my life came to an end. A year prior to the depression, I was the happiest I had ever been. I decided to go back to school, I created this blog, I lost over 50+ pounds, and I finally felt good about myself, but eventually that period of my life came to an end. Endings are indeed apart of life. No matter what we do or how much we try to hold on to something, when the end comes, there is nothing we can do about it. I am a person who used to be fearful of endings but if its one thing that endings have taught me is that an ending can be just as beautiful as the beginning. There was never an ending that did not lead me to the next chapter of my life, good or bad. Had my period of depression never ended, I would not be here writing this post. Had my period of happiness never ended, I wouldn’t have realized how much pain and trauma I was masking. Rather it is a painful or happy ending, endings are indeed a beautiful thing and we all need to learn to embrace them. Anything that ended opened my life to new possibilities and blessings. Do not be fearful of endings, they always lead you on the path you are meant to be on. Trust it the process.
