living in the real world

One of the dangers of the internet world is that we see things in extreme – things are either brilliant or dreadful.  We can look at friends facebook profiles and can ponder in jealousy at the amazing lives that people have whilst getting upset that we are unable to match their levels.  Problems can then befall and our false assumptions may make us wonder why it ‘always happens to us’ but for others life is seemingly a smooth journey of constant rejoicing.

The truth of life is somewhat different – we all face times of difficulty, struggle, pain, triumph and success.  Admittedly, they may be in different measure but we all face them, the challenge comes from how we address them.
