We don't have to settle Nick, we're the best.
-Jess (New Girl Episode 23)
There are times when we stop living our life to the fullest because we think it's just not worth it. We decide to settle for what's available, because fighting for what we really want seems just too tiring and disappointing. We tell ourselves it's not giving up; we get comfort from the thought that we're just sparing our feelings from getting hurt. When we stop being hopeful and thrilled for surprises that could cross our path, we stop living a happy and fulfilling life. We stop living and start EXISTING.
We get sad, we feel bad, we want to give up -- these are just natural feelings. But when it gets serious and we completely lose the will to stand and give it one more shot, we lose the whole battle right there and then.
Faith is what we need. Faith that we can smile despite the sorrows. Faith that somebody is waiting for us. Faith that little do we know, we're the greatest person for somebody. Faith that our simple gesture means a lot to a stranger. Faith that we always have a friend. Faith that we are always somebody else's friend. Faith on simple things. Faith on greater ones. Faith that the storm would soon run out of rain. Faith that if others were able to do it, we can do it too. Faith that we can make it. Faith that we WILL make it.
