Trust Life a Little Bit

Updated on January 5, 2012

Most of the people who get affected by problems in their lives mostly think and believe that it is only them who are going through a challenging and sorrowful time and that other people around them are living their lives happily. That is not the right perspective towards life and people who have such thoughts should seek assistance from people who could offer inspirational guidance.

There are also individuals who think of killing themselves, which is perhaps the biggest sin an individual can commit in his/her lifetime. For those with religious convictions, it is equivalent to disrespecting God and not having trust in Him. For those who don't have strongly held religious beliefs, killing yourself is a selfish act and a cowardly way to face life's challenges.

Those people who do not trust life and believe in it should understand that life is a cycle of sorrow and happiness. No one stays happy throughout his/her life and no one is in depression for an entire lifetime.

Happiness is not directly related to circumstances and things around an individual’s life. There are some people who are happy naturally and their happiness is not affected by the things happening around them. People who always find themselves in distress and dejected must make an effort to extract happiness out of any situation. There are people who find happiness or at the very least, some measure of peace, even when they are imprisoned, and there are people who despite being in the best of medical and financial health fail to find happiness.


There are ways to stay happy. An individual must first respect and honor himself. A person who respects himself would have a higher self-esteem and would be respected more by other people. This respect from other people could eventually result in attaining happiness.

One must learn to forgive people. If forgiving is difficult, then the person must at least try to forget ill incidents caused by an individual/s and move on. By forgiving others, people release resentment and even feelings of revenge stored over a period of time. Forgiveness allows you to move on and drop unnecessary emotional baggage that would otherwise drag you down and continue to make you miserable.

A person needs to be thankful and grateful to things that he has got from people and life in general. The things that have made him happy and incidents which have helped him mature and grow better as an individual should not be forgotten. Thanking God and people who have made a difference in their lives is a way of releasing positive emotions that could lighten one's heart. A lighter heart would give a feeling of satisfaction and would eventually lead to happiness.

Having a purpose for life and persevering to attain that purpose is another way of deviating from sadness and keeping oneself engaged and committed to life.

      That is an excellent lesson from your parents Ish Mael, my sentiments exactly. A proper sense of perspective helps balance things out. Reminds me of that line from the poem Desiderata, "If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain or bitter, for there will always be greater or lesser persons than yourself."

      Thank you for your comments.

      Great hub, moiragallaga. Sometimes people think that they are at their lowest only to realize that there are other people who are experiencing the lowest times of their lives than yours and you will realize that you are still blessed. This is a lesson I learned from my parents who always reminded me that there are people who are higher than you that you have to learn to be content with what you have and people who are lower than you that makes you realize that you still have more blessings than you ever thought of. So, yes, let's trust life a little bit!
