I remember in high school somewhere my religion teacher Sorin Spohn said that life isn’t supposed to be easy. It was somewhere along the lines about how if it was, then what’s the point of God creating the earth?
That was the premise of that quote. I don’t remember the exact words but it has stuck to me throughout my entire life since then. Life isn’t easy.
I think that’s what I am starting to grasp my head around right now. I am going through some uneasy stuff. But it’s not all too bad.
I live by myself in a room with people I don’t really dig. It’s hard being by myself but I just have to deal with it. It’s also hard that I have a new job in a new place. The job is good but it’s still not easy adjusting to all of it. I only know like three people in the LA area so that makes it tougher also. I’m basically all on my own.
But God reminds me that these challenges are for me to get better. If things were like it was before, then where’s the challenge? Where is the challenge God is giving me to be better? These complicated situations are needed. I don’t like it, but I accept it. I know I am better off for it. But getting myself to the place where I am comfortable isn’t easy. And that’s how it is supposed to be. But I’m better off because of it.
