Hi guys, just a question.
What to do when you are completly in peace with your life, and so you start to think that something has to go wrong in the future, that todays joy tomorrow wont be there, that something terrible has to happen, so you start pushing away all the people or things that makes you happy because of the fear of getting hurt.
You know what people say
“The higher you fly the harder you fall”
But so, whats the point?
I think feeling pain is a part of life. Sure, no one wants to get hurt, but you haven’t fully lived if you have never experienced pain. Have you ever heard of the quote “the higher the risk, the higher the return”? It’s a statement stated over and over again in Economics Studies, but I feel like it applies to this condition as well. If you let yourself be free, take risks and experience new things, you will receive more happiness and joy than just being alone doing nothing.
Overcome your fear and let yourself experience emotions you’re supposed to feel. You have to let yourself grow and discover new things in life. Good luck, I hope you have a happy life!
Andre,I would like to tell you my favourite quote : “joy is love for what is,while sorrow is love for what is not.” Either way, it is love, an emotion. The key is to be present in the moment, whether your heart says this is joy or sorrow. My music teacher, elderly lady in her nineties, once told a fellow student who was neck deep in problems that – happiness is only the time gap between two sorrows. May be she meant that times keep changing and this is how life goes. I, very naively, thought to 9 year old self, why can’t the vice versa be true. But, as I grew up, I understood both may be right, depends on our perspective. To be in the moment and appreciate what life has in store for us, is THE way to live. If today something feels joyful, tomorrow something else would. If tomorrow, things don’t bring happiness, those moments would pass away too and good times may come. But, people don’t. Hold your dear ones who won t leave you when times change, very dearly to your heart. Happiness will definitely blossom from your heart, and this time you can make the spring last as long as you want it to.
I don’t know whether this is anywhere near to the answer you were seeking, but these words came to my heart.
Wishing you Grace and happiness..
