Life...Originally Posted by clarinet
Why do we exist in this world, in this place at this time?
Life is always unfair. There are people born into billionaire families and live their whole lives in the lap of luxuy and comfort. Yet there are others born into extreme poverty, having to starve and suffer.
What is more important?
Materialism, greed spoils the human soul. So what if a man has the classic Singapore '5Cs'? What if he's an abusive husband, or treats his wife coldly.
Look beyond materials. Love. Man is kind by nature. Let it manifest within us. Love everyone around you, not just your gf/wife of bf/husband.
Joy... Look for simple joys. A beautiful flower, the chirping of birds in the trees, the touch of the warm breeze against your face. A simple smile, a word of thanks, a caring heart, a kind word.
Hope.... Every cloud as a silver lining. There's always light at the end of the tunnel. Where all hope is lost, look forward... Look around you... Heard of Helen Keller and Theresa Chan? (look at my avatar)
Friendship.... True friends walk with you every step of the way. Fated to meet, your paths crossed. Some are just a fleeting moment, some stay with you for the rest of your life. Although you might break contact or have arguements... May Fate bring you together again.
