My Easy Is Not Your Easy

Can you believe we are just four days away until we begin the new year? New beginnings. Renewed hope. Greater possibilities. Perhaps, a deeper understanding of pains, failures, disappointment and everything that is not easy.

A few weeks ago, I read a post about how people compare our pains to theirs or theirs to others. You know, when we tend to minimize theirs because it’s nothing compared to ours?

How many times have we opened up to someone about something only to be told that it’s nothing? That it’s easy.

But you know what…? I believe you if you say it’s not easy. I believe you, no pains are of the same magnitude. I believe you, no sufferings are of the same depth. I believe you, no sadness is alike. I believe you, that my easy is not your easy.

So for the coming new year, don’t try to minimize your pain. Never ever make light of your sufferings. That your sadness, will never be like mine.

For you see, we grieve differently. We heal in phases, some longer than others. But no matter how long or how deep, it doesn’t make you any weaker. I know…

Because…just like you, their easy was not my easy.

And it’s okay.

Wishing you all the best for the New Year! Thank you so much for following me in this journey we called life. May God bless us with abundance, good health, peace and a wonderful new beginnings.
