“ALL GOOD THINGS HAVE TO COME TO AN END”
I for one, though still struggling to swim out of the a worse period of my life, like to believe that ALL BAD THINGS AND TIMES HAVE TO COME TO AN END. This does not only make me stronger than the situation but also if I do not believe this way, then the inspiration to swim across this sea of trouble will die and I will soon drown. Again I would be able to enjoy my good times better without the fear of bad times overcoming me any moment.
It also has a lot to do with our outlook. Is it that good times are really shortlived or are we making it look that way by giving too wide a perspective for the bad. If we are able to convince ourselves that whatever happens is for the ultimate good, then we would find that bad times teaches us a lot of lessons and in fact can be used as a foundation for good times ahead. This way the bad times itself would not look all that fearsome as we may be able to see a lot of good in bad times too, giving the impression of the good times never really die out. I may seem to sound highly idealistic but then this is one way we can remove the stigma attached to the good being short-lived and weaker than the bad.
I also solicit the opinion of this young, vibrant, dynamic and optimistic blogging community as to why this phrase has come to be so widely used and also would it not do a world of good to this world at large if we change our attitude strongly to believe that it is only all bad things that have to come to an end. I am sure your opinion would go a long way not only in helping me but a whole lot of not so spirited people out there in seeing good in the worst situations.
