or the past few months, there’s a lot of things had happened to the life of a young man named *Jay – new career, new relationship, and new challenges of being a successful independent. He just loves to share a few things of his remarkable stories out of many because he knows it would have been very long and might be tedious. But as far as I know, every story is definitely worth reading for. Here’s what he just shared:
Revealed. Jay is only 20, but he’s completely reliable to himself – not dependent to his parents or anyone else to provide his needs and wants. He is a quiet person, a man with a few words. You can only hear him speak at least 50 words a day. It’s seldom for you see him laugh but he’s not that serious either. He is very helpful and willing to take extra miles for someone in need. He didn’t experience to be treated like a bad guy because he knows how to consider other people’s feelings and treat them well.
Way back last year, Jay was so privileged to have a job with reasonable pay in one of the prominent companies in his country. Although he lives on his own already, he was still able to divide his blessings with his parents from the company he worked with. He promised his parents to take good care of them for the best of his ability given that they’re not that strong anymore to make end meets. He dreamed to finish mending their very old home that hasn’t been done for many years. He dreamed to have his very first computer to widen his knowledge and he dreamed to be a good provider in his relationship with his loved one. He was a very happy and blissful young boy and, in fact, a dreamer until something happened to him that has made his whole life changed.
Jay lost his job for the very first time in his life. He was accused for something that he didn’t intentionally do. For his entire career, this is the first time he has made an honest mistake that made his everything bring to an end. He explained himself but no one seemed to believe, no one even understood. He told nothing but only the truth. His heart was broken. His dreams and plans came to nothing. Everything that he has was gone and that brought his world to an end.
Beams of hope. After what happened, Jay didn’t surrender. He didn’t stop believing himself that what he did is RIGHT. Even once, the words giving up never ever came to his mind. He can’t seem to find someone on earth to trust and to share his anguish with but only God and his diary. His relationship suffered, he was running out of money, he has no choice but to go home and humbly ask for his parents help that had nothing much to offer because they’re old. Nevertheless, his life didn’t stop there. He held on tightly to those things he knows and believes. He faithfully held on tight to God’s words and promises that He will never abandon him especially to his most difficult times. He is very faithful, strong and very determined to have his happy life back, to make things to be connected again, to reach the highest star, to continue dreaming and let these dreams come true.
Now, 23 year-old Jay is working in a very prestigious company in the world. He promised himself that he will do his very best to take care of his work, make the best out of it and to continue his plans and dreams that have been put aside for a long, long time.
HOUGHTS. We are in this world to appreciate life. We have everything we need here. We might fail and get hurt one day, but giving up is never an option. Like Jay, all we need to have is the fidelity and the ability to believe that we can make it through. He never stepped someone else’s feet just for him to be successful. Even though he knows to himself that he never did anything wrong, but still has been kicked out of his job, Jay didn’t lose hope. He firmly accepted it wholeheartedly because he believes that God will never give him ordeals that he cannot stand. After all, faith in everything that we do is the main tool to outshine whatever trial and tribulation we will encounter across in life. Jay was also the one who wrote this inspiring story, and that is actually ME.
