The moment of sorrow, pain, and happiness walks along and forever in a family, but when is the happiest time in a family? Can we say that when a baby is born into a family, then the family members have a lot of sense of pleasure? Yes, we can say that, because when the baby laughs, all the members of the family are happy. Even when the child is depressed, all the family members do their best to bring a smile on the child’s face, and in the baby’s thrill, they remember their childhood.
But can we see moments of grief and delight in equal proportions?
Probably not! Because, the moments of pleasure, steadily changes, with each achievement in the life of a human. Individuals misremember the pleasures gained from old accomplishments, due to the happiness gained by each new success. They start discontent with the charms existing in the present time. And in this way, craving, hunger, and longing, hidden in the desire to attain more happiness, lead them to darkness.
On the other hand, the sorrow in people’s lives will remain in their memory until their last breath. Agreed! that suffering is painful and stressful, but in this same pain, the born of struggle occurs; that lead a person towards progress and change. Sadness is not the contractor for human destruction! Instead, it is a partner of physical, mental, and economic prosperity on the path of human evolution.
A woman who suffers for nine months of pain, to gain motherhood, achieves triumph over unbearable pain through struggle. Similarly, pottery and iron weapons also have to endure the fire’s heat to become strong. Meaning, sadness is prime and has always been prominent, both biologically and psychologically, because the desire for happiness without suffering is meaningless.
To become a happy person, first, you need to face what it’s like to be unhappy. Because if you want to climb the mountain, first, you need to face all the challenges that come along the way. It’s just like treating a wound; you have to endure the pain you would feel when applying any lotion or antiseptic. You have to accept your reality, whatever it might be, to evolve in a better you. And more important than that, you have to take responsibility for your actions, decisions, and whatever outcome it would bring.
So, no, without any doubt, we can say the moments of happiness are not more important than the sorrows. Because giving more value to happiness in our life is like getting caught in the happiness trap. Life’s uncertain, anything at any moment can fall down in pieces, and if we focus too much on happiness, then we’re never going to be happy at all.
Therefore, if you want to make the most out of your life, try to accept everything that comes in your way. If you can’t accept it, try to change it. And if, by chance, it’s hard to bring change, then leave whatever causing the trouble. Only and only then you can have a little amount of happiness in your life.
