When you experience situations or challenges in life which threaten to take away your joy, peace, and happiness by causing emotional pain to the point where it hinders your progress, you have to decide to live. I know how life can be when you lose something you thought you would keep forever. The best thing to do when these types of situations occur is to evaluate the lessons that you've learned as a result of the thing or relationship.
Once you have identified what you've learned, decide on what you will keep or dispose of mentally. This will help you move forward with confidence that better days are ahead. Sometimes we can get stuck thinking about what we could have done to make things work out, but you must realize that some situations come to an end to help you grow and become the person you were destined to be. When you allow bitterness to take up residence in your life, you limit yourself and your blessings to an event or someone who is finite in their ability to produce what you need.
Your Test is Almost Done, Keep Going
I know it seems like I'm saying that it's better said than done, but trust me. My experience has allowed me to embrace the possibility of what I can be instead of what others say I won't be. Make a decision that you won't let your past or someone hinder your future based on their limited view of you. Job's friends could not see his future because they were too busy looking at his losses. They did not know the blessings God had in store for him or the test that was orchestrated in heaven before Job's challenges emerged. Don't let your current circumstances or other people block your view of the blessings that are waiting for you after your tests are done.
