This just kind of hit me the other day. And it makes us all look like spoilt, whiny brats
We all want to be happy. We all want the good things in life.
Yet, it doesn’t happen smoothly most of all the time. So we whine, gripe and complain when things don’t go our way. We act like we deserve otherwise.
But on the other hand, when things don’t go our way on the positive side of things, we’re always so ready to accept it.
Random stranger cuts you off on the road, we get mad and be like, “This isn’t how it should be. Why are people so stupid? What did I do to deserve this shit?”
But, if random stranger does random act of kindness to you, like offering to carry your bags or even pay for your meal, we get surprised and be like, “This isn’t how it should be. Why are people so nice? What did I do to deserve this?”, with a smile on our faces.
See the similarities in both scenarios? Basically, things hardly ever go our way in life. And this is an idea we both accept and reject, with candor coupled with anger or glee.
We’re walking contradictions.
That’s just being human I guess.
But we can make life simple for ourselves. Here’s how to deal with the weird conditions of life.
A) When unconditional love comes
Accept it. Be happy. Don’t even wonder or question. Way too many people are too smart for their own good, so much so they question so much that they forget that happiness is meant to be felt.
But, remember to pay it forward. Unconditional love wasn’t stemmed from selfishness and made only for you.
B) When unconditional assholeness/unfairness comes
It is nothing but a challenge for you. Face it head on and overcome that shit.
Nowhere does it say in the menu of life that challenges don’t exist, that they are meant to make you whine and gripe and that it’s some permanent form of damage that’s going to create hell for you.
I guess at the end of it all, it’s how you react to life.
Things are going to happen all the time anyway. Good or bad, you can’t stop it. I don’t think you are even allowed to stay perfectly in the middle. That’s why the saying goes, “Life gets in the way” or “Life caught up with me.”
Might as well keep surprising life with what you’re capable of then.
