It’s true that life can be sometimes unjust, malevolent and a source of sadness. Well, everyone experiences those times that they thought that the world had forsaken them. That everyone around them doesn’t care about them. Being pessimistic can’t be of help in times of hardships. How can you act properly if you only think about bad outcomes? No matter how small a possibility may be, it’s still an opportunity. Who know what might happen? These problems thrown at us don’t mean to destroy our lives, it’s meant to shape up our lives. A problem free life isn’t worth living at all. It will just be a boring life without challenges. Life is a gamble and the outcomes of your actions may be unlikable sometimes. Just always remember that problems are there to make you a better and a stronger person.
A negative perception causes us to look at life as a source of sadness, to think of the world as unjust, to view others as malevolent. This way of thinking builds upon itself, becoming harmful, bringing misery to the thinker.
If negative perception is the cause of such misery, then in order to help others, we should try to displace their negative perception with a positive one. We cannot control life and remove the challenges that others face, we can only try to influence the way they interpret their challenges.
So life will happen: illness, injury, disablement, separation, death. But what is not necessary, is disappointment or despair. By altering perceptions, from negative to positive, misery disappears.
