I think there’s a lot of negativity thrown towards being content. Whoever said it was a bad thing, obviously didn’t experience it the right way. It did take me quite awhile to fully accept what being content really means. Just because we don’t like something, doesn’t mean we have to be tortured by it. We choose to make a change or let it remain the same. That’s what I mean, though. It’s alright to be content with something, if it isn’t hurting you in the process. I know a lot of people who go through their daily lives miserable because they can’t change one thing about their situation.
It’s sad to watch, but it’s an inevitable truth. Watching a friend or family member go through something you know they can change. But it’s not up to us to change it. They must change the situation themselves. It’s not something anyone wants to hear when they’re going through it, but sometimes it’s what they need.
Hopefully these words will reach someone and really make an impact on their lives today. I know I needed to get it out there, so maybe someone needed to hear it. Either way, it’s an important thing to remember.
