what is it about life that makes it so damn difficult for some and so easy for others?
for some life is a glorious journey with rose petals to walk on. For others it is a journey of misery and despair, littered with pain, agony, frustration and loss.
why is this so?
what causes one to experience the glory and joy of life and the other the pain, misery and suffering only wished upon your worst enemy, maybe not even them?
A lot of it has to do with your outlook on life, obviously.
then again there is environment, upbringing, social status, etc.
but then again there have been numerous examples of people from privileged upbringings or rockstars/movie stars that spiral to the depths of despair. And you juxtapose them against the poorest villagers in India and Papua New Guinea who are happy and fun loving without, what is seems is a care in the world.
I think at the end of the day as Viktor Frankl discussed in “A Man’s search for Meaning”, it is about your purpose. Without a purpose, what are you here for, what is it that you are meant to achieve.
Too many people are just meandering through life with no purpose and therefore, as the Cheshire Cat said in “Alice in Wonderland” when he was asked by Alice
“Alice: Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?
The Cheshire Cat: That depends a good deal on where you want to get to.
Alice: I don’t much care where.
The Cheshire Cat: Then it doesn’t much matter which way you go.
Alice: …So long as I get somewhere.
The Cheshire Cat: Oh, you’re sure to do that, if only you walk long enough.”
And that is how most people go through life, hoping they will end up in the right place.
Some sort of focus on something is better than having nothing, even if it is the wrong thing. It will sort itself out, sooner or later.
