From Our Readers: The Absolute Tragedy of Wrong Timing
There are times that things are going great for you but deep inside you, you're a little bit afraid that sooner or later all the good things will come to an end. You're scared that what if you did the right thing but still end up a mess? Just like when you feel so right to love this person but still didn't work out? It's the right love, but not the right time. Maybe it was just meant to happen, or maybe it all just happened at the wrong time.
That's why I used to think that timing is everything. B at the end of the day, I knew that there was no such thing as wrong timing and no matter how cliché it may sound: everything happens for a reason. If it happens, it happens. Everything occurs in their own perfect time but we seem to label it as the "wrong time" just because things didn't work out as we expected them to be. Sometimes expectations ruin things for us and make us blame ourselves. So be careful.
Sometimes expectations ruin things for us and make us blame ourselves.
But you know what? It's not about the wrong timing, it's about us making the wrong decisions. If things don't turn out okay, if they don't seem to look like how you imagined it to be, so be it. Face what's in front of you because there's no one and nothing to blame, not you, not the people around you and definitely not the time. Maybe it doesn't matter if it is the best of times or it is the worst of times because time is constant and it's all you got. So you better make the most out of it.
And as time goes on, you will understand that what stays, stays and what doesn't, goes. Some people have longer time than the others but it doesn't mean that they cannot be happy because our happiness does not depend on the time we have but it depends upon ourselves. So keep positive. Everything takes time but every good thing is worth the wait.
