von-nation's Reading Room
In this society that emphasis on the packaging, we would sometimes
inevitably envy other people's good looks and lament about our own
imperfection. But in life's experiences, one will discover that
there's no one life that is perfect, everyone has a lack of something. Some
couples are very loving, big monthly salary but they have problems bearing
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 have I have learnt to accept it with open
arms because I understand that the flaw in life is like a spike on our
backs reminding us to be humble and to emphatise with others. If there are
no hardships, we will be complacent. If there is no depression, we cannot
emphatise and console those who are less fortunate. I also believe
that life cannot 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 others?
Also recognise that life has flaws, that I will not compare myself with others, instead cherish what you already have. So, don't go around envying others, count the blessings that life 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 have,
although not lovable is very much part of your life, accept and appreciate it
and your life will be much happier. If you are a clam: Do you want to bear
all the pains to produce a pearl..or you do not want the pearl and choose
to live comfortably? If you are a mouse, you suddenly find yourself
captured in a rat trap and in front of you is a piece of delicious cake, do
you eat the cake or not? Early piggy banks are made of clay, once it is filled
it has to be broken... If there is such a piggy bank no money has been
put into it until today and it has become a very priceless antique.. Which
piggy bank do you ask to be?
Everytime you think of it, note down your answers. Until one day when your answers does not change. Than you are Mature! Find someone who understands you and also hope you are that someone who understands him/her. The intelligent like to guess people's heart. Allthough everytime they get it right, they will lose their own... The innocent and naive love to give their hearts. Although they get laughed at everytime but they would have won over other people's hearts. The Fish said: I can't see my tears because I am in water. The Water said: I can feel your tears because you are in my heart.
