Life’s Lessons – Our Inner Battles


Yesterday I posted an article entitled “45 Lessons of Life”, written by Regina Brett. You can see that post here ~ “45 Lessons of Life

As I look down the list that she wrote, I see many lessons I have learned over my years. Some I remember exactly how and when I learned that lesson, and others I am totally clueless. Most lessons I learned before my heart transplant, others have been learned since.

From that list, #13 says this …. Don’t compare your life to others. You don’t know what their journey is all about.

While I don’t remember why or what happened when I learned this lesson, I do remember I learned it over 50 years ago as a child. My grandfather was my teacher in this case and he taught me that EVERYONE has their own struggles, their own battles. Many we never see, but the battles are real for each of us.

A very dear friend of mine uses this quote as part of her signature ~ Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle. ~ Plato

It’s easy to see that the guy that is down and out has his battles to fight, but let me assure you that I have met or known some very wealthy, very important people is my life and I know they have just as many battles as the guy that’s down and out. maybe even more so. Some would counter that if you have lots of money the battles are easier. And that’s simply not the case.

Lesson ~ Be kind!! In each of our minds and souls there are battles raging. I know mine, but only you know yours!

“The most important of life's battles is the one we fight daily in the silent chambers of the soul.”
