We Are Where We Are
'We are where we are'...
My best friend told me that when I was in the worst time of my life.
I didn't get it at first but then they explained it. We are where we are, what's happened has happened, there's nothing we can do to change the past and no way we could of knew it would lead to here. But it's happened and now it's time to look to the future and move forward.
That's when it made sense. There's no way I could change what had happened, yes it hadn't gone to plan, wrong place wrong time and all of that but it was out of my control and I just had to deal with the result. The longer I dwelled on all the things that had gone wrong the less time I would have to make it better. The same goes for everyone. Even if it's something small like your car breaking down and you can't get to work easily for the rest of the week, you are where you are and all you can do is deal with the situation.
There's no point in what if's and buts. You've just got to get up and dust yourself off. Give yourself time to think about it of course but not for too long. The reason I'm writing this is in case someone like me couldn't see what was right in front of them. Maybe someone needs to see the positives opposed to the negatives. Until I heard that said to me I was stuck and that made me see more clearer. Even now when I think of that quote it makes me believe in myself and life that little bit more.
What is the one quote you live by?
