Everybody goes through something in their life, especially in the journey of trying to want something better for themselves. The moment you begin to consider changing your ways into the positive side of life that’s when life punches you in the face.
Most times we interpret what we feel in different negative forms but when life decides to punch you in the face then there’s something life wants you to learn. There’s a saying that God gives his harshest and strongest battle to his strongest soldiers and you might be one of those soldiers facing a real battle of life
When life punches you in the face when you have made the decision to start choosing better for yourself see it as part of the journey that you made the decision to embark on and realize that that journey doesn’t come easy. There will be trials and tribulations on the way to your destination.
There are some steps to take so that when life punches you in the face you don’t wallow and cry your way out of your journey. There are steps to take to build resilience within you and face whatever life has got to offer whether expected or not.
Defending yourself when life punches you in the face
When life punches you in the face, at first it looks like a huge f***king disappointment and you find yourself and your plans on the floor without any reason why that happened. You need to realize that sometimes things don’t go our way and that’s that to life
With these in mind you know that when life punches you in the face it is not the end of the world, you can begin again, and come to think of it, it is just a plan in 100 more plans you can begin that didn’t work out. One failure isn’t a final failure, we live in a boundless world filled with countless opportunities and you can see yourself eating off those countless opportunities you have.
Secondly, for whatever punch life decides to throw your way, whether in disappointment or whatsoever be ready to bounce back and throw your punch back in life’s face. A lot of people say life is one big battlefield or boxing ring and I kind of believe that, because look around you, everybody is fighting something and trying to win.
Life is a constant battle of surviving and when life punches you in the face you feel that battle, difference is some people go down and never come back up. Till a man dies and as long as he lives he will continue to be faced with countless amount of battles. No man can avoid these battles except when they lie down defeated and for this reason, many never decide to rise up again.
Life is a continuous terrain of battles to be fought and won, when life punches you in the face please don’t try to see it or react to it as a knockout. Go down but not out. Choose to rise above it and come back heavy.
Being cautious can save you from a lot of damages that is supposed to bring you down. When life punches you in the face, sometimes you can’t avoid this strike but you can be cautious and avoid huge damage in your journey. A friend of mine will say “When it comes to this life thing, you can’t be too cautious.”
I seriously believe that and respect that saying because when you live life being too cautious it results in unnecessary paranoia but a little bit of cautiousness here and there will save you from a lot of useless mistakes that the average man overlooks.
With all this, you can equip yourself when life punches you in the face. Following all these won’t protect you from disappointment or the trials and tribulations of life but they will make sure that you are contained from great damage, they will give you insight that life happens and there’s nothing you can do about it than watch it and prepare for it
