Want To Be Happy — Provide Unconditional and Unfailing Love?
The greatest work you can do on earth is the power of giving — it makes you strong and admirable.
Most of the time, we end up in anguish and distress, reason being there is always shortfall in our expectations with everyone is this world.
Flip the expectation, and start doing the same to others.
You will be lucky if you get parents who could provide you with unconditional love your whole life — minus all the negative comments or discouragement you would have got all your life and what it would have done to your confidence. Are you one of the lucky ones?
I recently watched this movie — The Unforgivable on Netflix, where Sandra Bullock is both victim and the villain. In short — the first half of the story portray the state of Sandra, Ruth where she is a cop killer, and everyone hates her, once she is out of prison after 20 years of completing the sentence, she is lookout for her younger sister, however being a felony she is not allowed to meet her sister, but somehow she end up meeting her adopted family.
The hardest part is that the crime of killing the cop was not done by her but her sister, who was just five years old at that time, and in order to protect her sister, she owned the crime, and went through an extreme hardship and hate.
Can you do something like this for someone — unwavering commitment and support?
Beside money, most of us always complain about things around — friends, neighbours, work, school and society, however everything is not perfect, how you don’t get support from others, and how every moment no one meets your expectations. These types of unhappiness are created by us everyday, and we end up in vicious cycle of regret and sadness.
If you want to live a happy, there is a simple rule, be the giver, and it will trigger you to build talent and skill within yourself, which will help people and it automatically aspires you become the best version of you and everyone around.
Don’t live life just for yourself, that is not what humanity stands, there is a famous quote of Saadi —
“Human beings are members of a whole
In creation of one essence and soul
If one member is afflicted with pain
Other members uneasy will remain
If you have no sympathy for human pain
The name of human you cannot retain”
I am not saying that live a Buddhist or Stoicism life, but give more than you expect, be the creator and not just the receiver, you will end up having an infinite energy and skill and be more successful.
