Trials and Tribulations

It’s always eye-opening to see other people struggle with obstacles you’ve successfully overcome. You’re torn with wanting to help them and a deep understanding gained only through experience that it’s something they have to experience it themselves. Like metal must pass through fire in order to be tempered into a final, strong product, so too do certain trails have to be experienced in order to emerge wiser and stronger.

So all you can do is offer your own experiences and hope they come out of it for the better….

On a positive note, it’s also highlighted how far I’ve come along. Pretty impressive, if I do say so myself.

EDIT
Umm, obviously the title was meant to read trials and tribulation, not trails and tribulations… iTypo! my badd =)

  1. Perhaps this is one of those areas where you can empathize with others and encourage them that they will emerge on the other side. And show them that having gone through it yourself, you have come through stronger and with more wisdom. 🙂

    • No doubt. You can, from your unique perspective, show them that ‘hey, I came out of it a better person. There is a brighter day’ lol. But at the same time, you know that those words aren’t going to solve it. They have to go through it, and you worry about the loss of their innocence =(. But there’s a price to pay for everything, eh?
