In this society that emphasizes on the packaging, we would sometimes inevitably envy other people’s good looks, and lament about our own imperfection.
But in fact there’s not a single person whose is perfect, Everyone has a lack of something. Some couples are very loving, with handsome earnings, but they could have problems bearing child. Some people have the looks and talent, but could have a rough time in relationships. Some people have lots of money, but they don’t have filial children. Some people look to have a good life, but their brain could be empty all their life.
Everyone’s life has been designed with imperfections, You may not want it, but it will follow you.
I used to hate my imperfections,
But now I have learnt to accept it with open arms.
The flaw in life is like a spike on our backs, reminding us to be humble and empathetic with others.
If there are no hardships, we will be complacent. If there are no sufferings, we cannot be ompassionate and console those who are less fortunate. Life cannot and can never be too perfect. Having a crack, to let happiness flow to others, is a beautiful thing.
You don’t have to have everything. If you have everything, what’s left for the others? Also recognise that life has flaws, That you shall not compare yourself with others, Instead cherish what you already have.
So, don’t go around envying others, count the blessings that Heaven has bestowed upon you. You will find that there are more things that you have, than things that you don’t have.
And what you do not have, although not lovable, is very much part of your life, Accept and appreciate it, and your life will be much happier.
