Symbolism: The Roads of Life
Hi everyone it has been awhile since I have done a symbolism post. I’ve talked about how we are all on different roads in life. Some roads intersect and some go in the opposite direction from our friends and loves ones. The roads of life are different for everyone and they are smooth and bumpy.
This kind of road resembles how life has ups and downs. We have great moments where we feel like we’re on cloud 9. We also have moments where we feel tired, stressed, and overwhelmed.
This pic symbolizes someone who is going through a very rough time. We feel like we hit rock bottom, the stress and anxiety were feeling is overwhelming. We can feel depressed and the light at the end of the tunnel is nowhere in sight.
We have bad moments and storms that we go through in our lives. Some are unavoidable, some are caused by others, and the experience can take a toll on our physical, spiritual, mental, and emotional health.
Like the first pic, life has it’s ups and downs. This one to me symbolizes how we work hard to achieve something great where we can feel accomplished and satisfied. The journey up is not always easy and can be tiresome. The hill the road is on symbolizes that.
Life has a way of taking unexpected turns which can be beneficial to us. We end up staying away from things, environments, or people that we thought we help improve our lives but ultimately would end up hurting us. We don’t always know that though.
However, those unexpected turns can happen at any moment and throw a wrench in our lives and the plans we have. We sometimes have no choice but to take that detour and go forward.
This pic is a smooth road which is something we all hope and strive to be on. Some of us are on that road right now. There are no rough spots, no forks, no turns, and no bumps. Being on a smooth road means that there is no unwanted stress, we’re not worried about anything, and we feel fulfilled and calm.
All roads are smooth and rough. All I can say is when your on that smooth road, savior every moment. The rough roads don’t last forever. Moral support from friends and loved ones makes being on those roads easier to handle. Being able to adapt, change, and be flexible is what will help you when those unexpected turns in the road happen.
Take care, stay safe, and remember your not alone and you have worth in this world.
