Life is a compromise
In life, sometimes we just can’t win it all. Have you ever thought that the painkillers that you take to relief your pain is actually harmful to the liver? However, if you don’t take the painkillers, the pain itself will be the harm.
Similar to our life. For example if a father is busy working outstation and is never at home, is he compromising his relationship with his family? But if he sits at home and not going to work, he might not be able to provide for the family up to the standard he wants to.
For students, if we only focus on studies and not going out for socials with our peers, is it healthy for our overall growth as a person?
Sometimes we will be torn into two. Our mind might want something and our heart might want another. How shall we decide? No matter what we choose, one of it has to take the sacrifice.
Well, we just need to make the decisions, asking God for wisdom, guidance, and a peace of mind. Having a loving family and friends around certainly will make things better. They might not know what you’re going through, but you know that they are always praying for your best. There will always be the “what if” question in life that will bug us, but we live with our decisions and try to make the best out of it.
“You are my hiding place; you will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance. I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go. I will counsel you with my loving eye on you. …the Lord’s unfailing love surrounds the one who trusts in him.” Psalm 32
