My mother said that to me in a conversation we had last week. It got me thinking about life and how we always look for explanations to life's mysteries and problems. But the truth is sometimes in life , there is no answer! I was watching one of the TV shows i love, (yes i love watching TV shows) and the dad was saying to his child that "one day you are going to grow up and realize that you don't have all the answers".
Children usually have an innocence that reasons that there is an answer for everything but us we grow up we realize that life is not black and white. Life is complicated and sometimes there is no explanation. There are so many things that happen in life and we ask ourselves why? Why are some people born with horrible disabilities? why are some people insane? why do some parents abandon their children? Why do some people die so young? why cant everybody find love?
There are just so many things we cannot understand and not matter how desperately we want…
Temptation is all around us everyday. As human beings, we are all vulnerable to temptations. whys is it so easy for us to give in? I think sometimes we want a life free of complications, free of consequences. We just want to live in the moment.
There is nothing wrong with wanting to be free and happy however we should learn to accept that our actions have consequences and we cannot just do whatever we please. As a grown up, i realize that you cannot "have your cake and eat it." Something has got to give, you have to let go off somethings.
Sometimes, i think i want something and why shouldn't i have it? But that's just being selfish and immature. You usually feel guilty after giving in to temptation and you end up feeling worse instead of better. You just have to keep trying to fight the urge to give in . ( "it is really hard but suck it up")
Kindness is an aspect of love. However kindness should not be confused for love. Today, we live in a world where people avoid suffering or want to "protect" their loved ones from any kind of suffering. While i do admire people's kind intentions, we must learn to accept that life is never going to be free from suffering.
Some people even go as far as to say they do not want to have children to spare them from the harsh world we are living in. In my head, i always think seriously? Get a grip people. The priest in my local church gave a homily the previous Sunday about how parents are not bringing up their children responsibly. Some parents grew up in poor families and had to struggle when they were young and so they feel that their children should not suffer out of "love" for them.
Honestly, we need tough love people. If you bring up your children trying to shelter them from every hardship in life, they will have no strong values in life and they will become irr…
