Contrast. This is what this world is based upon. Good and evil, dark and light, suffering and happiness. It’s the only way to find a balance, the only way to equally experience everything.
I often tell myself, in times of struggle, that they are necessary. That those times are lessons. That, without them, I wouldn’t be able to evolve as a human being.
Evolution is not easy. It’s not even supposed to be. Evolution means fighting against overwhelming odds, so if it is for us to do more and be more, we must be prepared to fight the worst life has to throw at us.
Ironic, isn’t it?
At least that’s how I see it. Without pain and anger and suffering, we wouldn’t have compassion and love and patience.
Life is a balancing act.
