I went out with one of my best friend few days ago (not the one with the sick mom). And as usual, we try to catch up on each other's story about what's going on with us and with our other friends. And we usually share a rather similar stories because we both are in financial difficulties right now. And we usually end up reminding each other to never give up or lose hope, and to try to look at the brighter side of things.
Anyway, one story led to another, she mentioned about a friend of a friend's story. She told me about these two persons who have been going out for years before they finally tied the knot. The husband is rich, so they have no financial problem whatsoever. They have good business, nice house, and the wife is pregnant right now. Nice, right? Well ... not so much. Because the husband is cheating on the wife. None of their friends dare to tell her because she's pregnant. (I certainly think that it's none of their business anyway)
So me and my best friend just sat there and talked a little about it. Don't get me wrong, we did not discuss about the cheating husband or the wife anymore. We only talked about the fact that everyone had his/her own problems. We might not have the money we wish we have right now, but we have husbands who we can trust completely. And I think that is much much better than having lots of money but a cheating husband.
We must constantly look for the good things in life, the brighter side of everything. It's hard and sometimes tiring. But that's life. There are ups and downs, happiness and sadness, times to laugh and times to cry. At the end of the day, we just have to take a deep breath, be thankful that we can still get through today, and hope that we will have a brighter tomorrow.
