Some people are never happy. I think they thrive on being unhappy. They lament, “Oh. My life is so terrible. You don’t know how it is!” If it isn’t this complaint, then its, “I don’t know why such things happen to me?”
It’s really sad that most people aren’t willing to take ownership of their lives. I see many who constantly blame others for their predicaments. One of the most profound statements I’ve heard is: You are the result of a dark and stormy night. Period.
I know many people who blame their parents for their stations / situations in life. They feel lack of love or attention, shadowed due to favouring of another sibling, no support in education...How long will they go on in self-pity mode?
Our parents do not owe us anything. Once we realize this, we can take responsibility for ourselves, our actions, etc.
Everything that happens in our lives is a result of our karma, our actions, our thoughts. It’s easy, really easy to emanate positive thoughts and have positive things happen in our lives. I know this is true because it’s happened with me. When I erase negativity from my mind, everything brightens up. Life could be so much worse. Look at people around us whose sufferings are nowhere close to the mundane upsets we feel. I remind myself every night that I’, blessed.
I have a wonderful life. I believe that it’s because I make it wonderful.
