When I first saw this quote I immediately connected to it. There’s just something so calming about how the author compares the two scenarios. When something bad happens, it seems as though we are swallowed into the darkness. Only to find out that because of that, we get to see a magnificent flicker of light that we wouldn’t have been able to see otherwise.
To this day, there were so many times when I felt I was at a low point. Yet for many of those cases, I have looked back and been grateful for them. Of course there are the ones where I still don’t understand their purpose, but that’s what life is, what Divine Providence is. We don’t always know. Sometimes we don’t get to see the stars. We just have to trust that every second we are alive, no matter what the circumstance, are helping us become the best person we can be. It’s certainly not always easy, but when we work on ourselves to accept this, we will ultimately be happier people because we are the ones who get to see the stars.
