I know these are just shallow examples of things going wrong in a person life but i can say this applies to the bigger things in life aswell. People i
know who pass away, fatal accidents ,losing your job , losing your house etc etc..whatever.
I know this is a pretty bold statement to say :" just take it in for it's a part of life" and the next thing people are going to ask: "well, did
you ever have things like this happen to you??".... i don't know!!!
I never really notice when bad things happen because usally there is always something else to look forward to or to be happy about and i tend to focus
so much on those things that i don't really experience these negatives. It's like it happens automatically.
Sure i attended my share of funerals of dear ones and i even slept on the streets for some time but i can't say i remember those things a well as ohh
lets say my marriage, my children being born, getting drunk when i was 15..etc etc.
"and what if something happens to your wife or children??"....That's maybe the hardest one i've come to struggle with since my first child was
born. Ask my wife....i've had this conversation with her over and over again before we had children and she asked me what i would do if she died.
I'm honest so i reply every time, that when she goes i'll miss her but that's it. I don't think i would fall into a depression or anything. I'll
just be glad for the time we had together but things happen.(by the way, i can advice against this method of replying to your wife. It's make for
interesting bedtime conversation)
Now for my kids (3 sons) i hope that i die before they do but accidents happen and i know this but this is the thing (the only thing) that sometimes
wakes me up at night.....weird isn't it?
All the other things that could seem of interest in a persons life. I don't care about them.
Maybe the most important part about being happy in life is not wanting things!! I never want anything and i don't expect anything. I like to help
people and i'm always more than happy to help or give but i never want anything!! You can take away my car, my house, my job....i really don't care.
The things that make me happy are the things you cannot take away from a person........
oh ps: I posted my question in a thread on BTS about my weird view on life and not caring about death or other misery...check it out.
