Sometimes we are pushed back in life for a short or long period of time. It is quite normal, according to me, because life cannot be without stumbling blocks. Generally, we are pushed back by other individuals when we compete with them. On those occasions we feel sad and try to think how to improve our talents to compete again and succeed. We may be pushed back by ill-health events too. Even though we feel we are healthy, at times we fall sick due to minor or major diseases. It is certainly a set-back in life. People may say that it’s due to ill-omens. ‘The time is bad.’ ‘It’s Saturn’s influence.’ etc. All these utterances are just to make us patient and wait for the cure to come. It may come soon in some cases and in others it may take a bit of long time. Therefore, we have to relax and take appropriate steps to come out of calamities such as these. The ‘push back’ may to go for a long time at some instances. In such situations patience is the proper medicine in addition to appropriate treatments. There are many instances we see among our friends and relatives that patience could solve most of the problems. In fact, we see them happy after long periods of suffering. ‘If there is a will, there is a way’ – we all know fully well. Hence I feel life can not be always rosy, at times it will enter dark phases and we have to wait for the light to come. Is it not true that, if winter comes, can spring be far behind?
