I am a believer that if there was a way to get out of any discomfort, it would be to calm the mind and become the optimist. Love back the ones who love you and be graceful. The best lessons are learned through others mistakes and the more persistent we are through our failures will lead to success. We should not judge ourselves on others accomplishments or opportunities but only through want we can control and preserver through. At the lowest point emotionally and mentally, there is always a moment to realize that it could be worse.
The thought of being buried alive literally is unfathomable but, metaphorically most of us are in our own way. How often are we left with no one to really talk or vent to? How often are we alone during the day or night thinking about how we will make it to the next day? Even how we will take care of our families? Then you sit there trying to figure out how you got in the situation. Its a tough pill to swallow especially when knowing there is only two ways to get out; either dead (complete failure) or alive (able to change what got you buried).
There are those who stop. Those who lie in their coffin and soak in their depression and sadness. They don’t bang on the coffin even try to get out of it. Depression and sadness are both parasites and are easily acquainted to those with open arms. Its quite rare these people will be ever found. In a coffin underground, there isn’t much oxygen to yell so that wont do any good. Suppressing the human instinct to yell, become irate and flustered will be key. Just like screaming and yelling in the real world because something has not gone your way. Its funny how life actually correlates to this analogy.
Luckily, someone may come forth in life and find you. It will for sure be during the weakest moment and last chance at life or redemption. It will be someone that loves you, admires you or cares dearly about you; because they can’t believe you are actually gone (given up). They feel maybe they will get you to change; perhaps even develop a drive or passion for something that you once loved. These are the ones who we should appreciate everyday. The ones with our best interest; the ones who love us for us and not anything else.
We live for redemption and opportunities to prove to people we still have life. To prove to the ones who buried us while we were still breathing, that there is something to live for. Some people are different, some people can get out on their own. Create their own way; as well as suffer and slave for the better good. Any man/woman can do anything with patience. There are people who may not know how deep they are buried, but stay composed under pressure and assure their survival. They just simply want it.
“What is it that is wanted” you may ask? A chance to be trusted. A chance to loved again. A chance to be apart of something special with that special someone or group of people. A chance to look at the ones that buried you and have them respect you. We all are at risk of being gullible to sloth, and that is why sloth is a sin.
