Are you depressed ?
I know you.
Many times you felt depressed whenever you think of the things happening to you.
You are also finding it difficult to come out of the mess you created.You think none of it is due to your fault.
You start wondering why these things happen to you only time and again !!
You are wondering whether there is any meaning to your life.
“Existence is a strange bargain.
Life owes us little; We owe it everything.
The only true happiness comes from squandering ourselves for a purpose” William Cowpe
Everyone has to face some problem or other
Describing somebody that ‘the fellow is born with a silver spoon’ is utter rubbish.
Everybody has to undergo suffering.
Whether the person suffers from cancer or just mild fever, or any other reason doesn’t matter.
Whether the person is rich or poor, doesn’t matter.
Good or bad doesn’t matter.
Whether the person is pious or unholy,doesn’t matter.
Whether the person is criminal or law-abiding doesn’t matter.
Whether the person is moral or immoral doesn’t matter.
Whether a newborn suffers or a 100+ old person suffers doesn’t matter.
I can go on and on…
The point I am trying to stress is, there is no escape from suffering once you are born
The only difference is, some suffer more and some suffer less.
Again I don’t have an answer.
“Life is pleasant. Death is peaceful. It’s the transition that’s troublesome.” Isaac Asimov
When one suffers, the first question one puts invariable is “Oh God ! why me ?” as if one is pure (at heart on par with Almighty), and the rest of the population deserves to suffer.
Remember there are others in this world, whose suffering is more than yours.
Instead, why can’t one boldly say ” why not me ?”
By saying so, Are we not gaining confidence in ourselves to face the eventuality?
To be frank, why should one get an exemption from suffering in one’s life?
Is this not God’s way of telling us to be
- Develop courage,
- Search for solutions( inventions,science etc)
- Improve inner strength,
- Understand the meaning of life ( philosophy)
- Know the value of time.
So we are thankful to the Almighty for allowing us to survive and gain strength from suffering.
Take home message
When life puts you in tough situations,don’t say “why me “? Just say “Try me” unknown
Thank you. Namaste 🙏🙏🙏
