Everything happens for a reason. Every person we meet, will have a role
in our lives, be it big or small, sooner or later. Some will hurt,
betray, and make us cry to become stronger. Some will teach us lessons,
not to change us but for us to realize our mistakes, and to help us
grow, and make us a better person. And some would simply inspire and
love, to make us happy.
is nicer than having someone who… appreciates you in the
smallest things, accepts, you in time s of hardships,
comforts you when you’re troubled, loves you no matter what
and is simply happy for having you in his/her life.
there are some disagreements, we should not allow bitterness and
resentment to fester inside us otherwise it will make our relationships
guarded and unsatisfying.
letting go of distress, resentment and negativity, we can keep our nature
open and loving.
Accepting others unconditionally allows them to remove their masks and
feel at ease with who they are. The security of being accepted gives
them the freedom to be themselves and then lets them easily know and
accept themselves too.
learn a lot from crayons: some are sharp, some are pretty, some are
dull, some have weird names, and all are different colors....but they
all exist very nicely in the same box.
hedgehogs in the following narrative learn to accept and live with their
imperfections in order to survive. And so with us humans. Through every
trial and moment of pain, we could stand together to help one another
and continue that selfless act of love and pass on
Family isn’t always blood.
It’s the people in our lives who want us in theirs; the
ones who accept us for who we are. The ones who would do
anything to see us smile and who love us no matter what.
It was the coldest winter ever. Many animals died
because of the cold. The hedgehogs, realizing the situation, decided to
group together to keep warm. This way they covered and protected
themselves; but the quills of each one wounded their closest companions.
The quills are the main cover
and means of defense that a hedgehog has against predators..
After awhile, they decided to distance
themselves one from the other and they began to die, alone and frozen.
So they had to make a choice: either accept the quills of their
companions or disappear from the Earth.
Wisely, they decided to go back to being together. They
learned to live with the little wounds caused by the close relationship
with their companions in order to receive the heat that came from the
others. This way they were able to survive.
The best relationship is not the one that brings
together perfect people, but when each individual learns to live with
the imperfections of others and can admire the other person's good
Life is sometimes difficult. We all have some kind of stress and we all need someone
in our lives that we can lean on. We should never think that we cannot
talk to someone because they have problems too; that our friend or
loved one would be better off without us or our problems. We will soon
find out that they need us just as much as we need them.

God doesn’t give you the people you want,
he gives you the people you need, to help you , to hurt you, to leave
you, to love you and to make you the person you were meant to be.
