I used to think that I am the only one who is suffering while every one else is having fun. Today I understand this is just a story I created for myself, and therefore inflicted more pain than there should have been with my self-pity.
We are here to learn. Life is for us to enjoy, to appreciate, and to learn regardless of what life throws at us, and what life cycle we happen to be in. There is always something we can learn in our different life stages. Our dream that there will be a perfect time when we can finally be happy is an illusion, it is the carrot in front of the donkey never to be reached. As is the assumption that everyone does well while we suffer.
We just need to learn to tackle our issues and have fun at the same time! It’s hard to balance the two, isn’t it? That’s exactly why life is so exciting and fun! Are you ready to dance with life? I am!
