We all suffer everyday. If you’re rich then you’ll suffer from the pressures of being perfect. If you’re poor, you suffer from starvation and insufficiency. If you’re middle class, you suffer from being able to upgrade your level and God knows how many more pressures. Being a student, you have a constant pressure to Excell, being an employee you have the constant pressure of work and being better than your peers.
Now the thing is, we all suffer way too often than we actually rejoice. Your happiness is just like a girl on periods, very moody. We get pinches of happiness here and there but still we somehow or the other, always end up suffering. We work damn hard everyday to achieve the short term happiness. Why? Because living in the society we need to be willing to let go of some things to achieve stuff which probably doesn’t even matter that much in our life, in the long run.
Look..even now, if you’re happy, you still are missing on something, but you choose to ignore that unhappiness and discontentment to enjoy the present happiness.
Like for example, consider you’re an employee in a company, you put your blood and sweat into expanding the company. You lost a lot of weight in the process and even a bags under your eye because you dedicated all your time to that company, in the end, you get rewarded by a promotion and a better salary. What will you do now? Cry for your weight loss? Or celebrate for the hard work that paid off? Obviously celebrate!
You get the message don’t you? I mean, if we are suffering all the time, then also sometimes we are willing to forget the sufferings and be happy. We do this because we prefer some things more than others.
This is the sole reason why we should do stuff we love. When you do stuff you love then the sufferings surely won’t go away but they won’t seem that big of a deal.
So you’ll eventually stop caring about your sufferings and start focussing on your happiness. And if y’all have read my previous blogs then you probably know how Important it is to be positive, and trust me being happy is the easiest way to bring positivity in your life.
So do what you like the most to actually feel happier even during your sufferings.
