One emotion. In fact a mega-emotion. It is so wonderful, beautiful. There is no greater happiness in the world than being loved. There is no greater compliment in the world than bestowing love.
Yet, why is this emotion so often the source of our sorrows? Why is the object of your love capable of inflicting the greatest pain?
Small, insignificant things, hurt. Maybe cause expectations change. And that maybe because we want it to be a certain way, progress a certain way. Its all stereotypes and clichés. But that’s what you want. If only we knew nothing of love, if we discovered it as we went along, would we be any happier?
Is love really overrated? Or do me make it so?
I wish I knew.
Your problems are so insignificant, they really don’t deserve the attention you give them.
If only homo sapiens were not so self-centered a species. It always takes a greater disaster to realise this.
There is a very good quote by Robert Fulgham, it tells you to realise the difference between a problem and an inconvenience. ( A very good description of it is found at Zenpencils, here)
I really like it, but would also like to add, that sometimes, you do have problems that may not be mere inconveniences. But they may not be the end of the world. Think about the various people struggling more than you, think about people in your own life who made sacrifices to get you where you are, think about the people who go through all this and never complain. Yes, you have problems, but so does everybody.
Make less of your problems and more of your successes. Prioritise happiness over discontentment.
Seldom do we find,
A mind alike our mind,
A soul so close to our past,
was it made in the same cast?
Another brain that precisely fires,
our brain’s deepest desires,
Another heart that pounds,
to the beats of our life, bound….
Another hand that seemingly holds,
our secrets; many, untold.
Another face that glows,
with emotions you chose…
Cherish the joys of such company,
Marvel over the sounds of your synchrony,
Let it make life a happy symphony!
