Discontent is the remedy to greatness

I get a little emotional sometimes. Okay, that is an understatement. I get majorly emotional when I feel like I am being treated unfairly. But that's just it. Feelings! They come and go and change our whole perspective on everything in life. I used to believe in people's ability to be and act fairly but I stopped a little while ago. People will always act in their own interest to the detriment of other people's interests. But as the saying goes, your freedom ends where another person's begin. So in exercising our freedom, we must be careful that we do not step on other people's toes.

I have come to realize without a doubt that my God is the only constant in this life! That is such a blessed assurance! I feel quite discontent in a certain area of my life. Without this discontent, I can imagine that I will be stuck here for a long time but thank God for it. I pray that I burn no bridges in the process because I might need those bridges someday! Quietly and patiently trying to forge a way forward :)

Just for clarification: was being unfairly treated the source of your discontentment? Or are they two different things?
Either way, being discontented could be a good thing; because as you may know, sometimes you just gotta stop, smell the roses, observe the sunrises and the sunsets, breath in contentedly, and just thank God for life itself.

Back to the point, it's ok if you're sensitive/emotional. It's not ok for people to want to constantly tread on your feelings. Neither is it ok for the pendulum to swing so far left as to be cynical or completely distrust the good in people. Sorry... I seem to be rambling here. But good post, Maxine.

@ Simplychic- Thanks :)

@Nanasei- I ahve been so thankful that I tried to look at the positive side of the situation but the constant unfairness made me realize that I am not destined to be in this spot for the long haul but for now, I remain thankful in this moment :)

@YNC- Work is going alright. Change has begun :)
