Rising Above Life’s Bitter Lemons (Disappointment, Heartbreak, Failure & Loss)

Overcoming life adversities requires a courageous, resilient and optimistic human being. You must be strong to face and triumph over life challenges. Here is how to keep moving forward even after life has handed you some bitter lemons:

  • Just accept what happened and move on
  • Play the role of a spectator of your life
  • Do not take it personal
  • Focus on your strengths
  • Seek positive influence and supports

Despite some life’s inevitable hassles, you must be optimistic and believe that life is worth living and that belief will help you create the fact. Optimism will bring about success which is the best form of revenge, success in this context is being happy and living up to your potentials. Finally, you will experience a wonderful fulfilled life.

I hold this belief that no one dead can be forgotten, they go to their last resting place. The memories and legacies they left behind will continue living in our minds. That is why it is better to live a positive and happy life, while doing good and passing positive vibes to others; eternal life is beyond religious conviction.

I implore anyone who has lost somebody not to cry and worry too much, all we need is fortitude to bear the loss and immortalize them, the best we can do is to continue blessing their souls. I knew what it feels like, I have lost few loved ones too. No matter their age, we just want them to live forever.

Death can only terminate the biological functions of human, but human soul continues to live in-between time and space. So, memories and legacies of human will determine afterlife. To all our families and friends who have passed on: I pray that God bless their souls, keep them save and grant them all eternal rest until we meet again.

  8. Ajibola,
    Wonderful post. My favorite part is “Despite some life’s inevitable hassles, you must be optimistic and believe that life is worth living and that belief will help you create the fact. Optimism will bring about success which is the best form of revenge, success in this context is being happy and living up to your potentials.” Optimism is hard to find in rough times, but it is the best light to guide you out of your despair. Thank you for such a positive message and collaborating with us! You add a rich element to the group.

  10. Well said, death is just a biological end, fond memories and the inspirational deeds of a human are immortal. Life is a race and losses should never put breaks on this race to excellence! I thoroughly enjoyed reading your thoughts! Have an amazing day!

  11. This is brilliant. Now, as a fan of Optimism, I must agree completely with Ipuna. I mean, that line – “Despite some life’s inevitable hassles, you must be optimistic and believe that life is worth living and that belief will help you create the fact.” – serves a great deal in the fundamentals of the optimistic lifestyle. It is an ideal illustration of the produce of an Optimist’s faith. Which in turn, serves to a great extent his greatest weapon of success. Moreover, it is this same faith that materializes and transforms the ‘unseen’ part of a downright negative situation into a tangible reality of good tidings. Thanks for the post.

    Good Luck!! 🙂
