pain and sadness is something I've been struggling with the past couple of years. not physical pain (I mean it's sometimes there but that's not my point and totally irrelevant haha), but the mental, emotional kind of pain. it's something people don't like talking about (especially me) and something we often look at as a bad thing. I always ask God, "why me? why do all the bad things happen to me? what did I do to deserve this? am I cursed?" people often look at pain and sadness as something to be ashamed of because we think people will treat us differently and because it feels like we're the only ones going through it.

but we're not.

and it's not a bad thing.

everyone has something going on that is hurting them at some point; young or old, rich or poor. no one's life is perfect! what is mind boggling to me is how pain has such a negative connotation to it. yes, it feels bad at that moment, but there is a reason for that pain. we need pain and struggles in life. I find that so hard to believe at times in my life where I feel like a failure (which has increased a lot recently), but it is what keeps me grounded. I'm not saying this is applicable to everyone, but sometimes when things are going just as we would like it to be, we tend to think of ourselves better than others; have an air about ourselves (myself included). we become less relatable to others around us, and most of the time, it's not intentional! it just naturally happens. so we need that sorrow and struggle in life. to learn, grow, and mature as a person. I know for a fact that if my life had gone exactly the way I wanted it, I would not be the person I am today (though I am definitely still growing). I feel like I am able to listen to others and relate more to them because of struggles I've gone through. I know what I like and dislike, and my strengths and weaknesses. it removes fear. when you've reached your lowest, there's only one direction to go and that's up! and I've only been able to go "up" and get through these struggles and pain in my life with the help of Jesus. I know if I didn't have these awful times in my life where I felt the lowest, my relationship with the Lord wouldn't be as strong as it is today and I'd probably be a **extra** hot mess. people tend to question their beliefs and stop believing when the going gets tough because they believe that God wants to see us suffer. but that's not true. God allows the pain and hurt to show how He can help us through it. it helps us get stronger and make us better people and inspire and help those around us. and I can personally say that faith in Him has helped me work through my pain and sadness!

"We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation. And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love." Romans 5:3-5
