What cup are you drinking?

These days I am having so much challenges (I prefer to call them that.

I don’t want to call them problems, although they look like temptations – the devil is tempting me. I got to stand strong) I’m lost for words.

I just thought I got to let you in into my secret world although it is difficult to do that. We all put up a façade. We do not want to let the world into our world. It is a sacrosanct place. It is mine alone.

Are you like that? Take heart, you are not alone. We all have those moments. They do not spare us. They come. And when they come, what do you do? You want to get rid of it.

But how can you when another person causes it? How do you get rid of it? You don’t. Or, if you do, you get rid of the person himself. But how do you do that especially if a person is a bergie?

He likes his life of irresponsibility. When he gets his money he drinks it alone, or with friends. That’s a type of a person I am talking about. And you live with him. And he is a pain in the neck.

When he is drunk, life is a nightmare. I would understand if he drank and was quiet. But he is not. He makes life unbearable. That’s a cup I got to drink. And it is annoying. I don’t want it.

But it is mine. I don’t know whether you believe in karma or not. What you do comes around. I grew up with this person. I knew him when he was young. We did things together. We thought we were playing.

But playing has come to haunt me. Because I know this person. While I was playing he was not. He was serious. And he is that play. Do you get me? What goes around comes around. And I regret it.

I wish I knew better. But I am grateful for my cup. This is a lesson I got to learn. The universe has presented it to me. And I’m not going to do anything to jeopardize my lesson. I’m going to drink this cup.

Yes, I’m going to. And I hope the universe will forgive me. Because there is life after haunt. I want to live that life. I’m so excited by it. But before going there, I’ve got to pass through this hell.

What about you? Have you had such a lesson? Or, are you experiencing one? I did not know how relieving it is going to be to spill the beans. Already I feel rejuvenated like I know what I am going to do.

Of course I do. The right thing is to forgive. Next to that is to be patience. And lastly is to love. Is there anything better than that? I don’t think so. Life is about learning. It is not theoretical. It is real. Stay positive
