“It shall be well” is a commonly used phrase in Ghana. It’s often said to people who are experiencing challenging times such as losing a job, falling ill, or suffering a disaster.
This phrase is intended to instill hope that things will improve in the future. While it’s comforting to hear, it’s not enough to make things better. Actions are what truly solve problems and help people find a way out.
When someone is going through a difficult time, it’s essential to offer them support, whether it’s by holding their hand and guiding them towards a better life, providing them with the tools they need to overcome their challenges, or showing them the way out.
Instead of relying on the phrase “it shall be well,” we should focus on taking action to make things better for ourselves and others.
