Obsessive self-centered thinking is the root cause of any lingering suffering and pain.
Whenever something bad happens to us, we all have this built-in mechanism to call out:
“Why is this happening to me?”
“Why can’t life be easy for me?”
“WHY ME?” in times of unfavorable outcomes is the easiest prescription for chronic suffering.
Try thinking “Why me?” when something amazing happens to you...
Have you ever thought like that?
Try thinking “Why me?” when the small circle of people who love you, shower you with love and kindness unconditionally.
Try that when you are in good health.
Try that when something good happens to you unexpectedly.
Do you do that?
Gratefulness is the ultimate remedy for worry and stress.
When you switch your focus on the great things you have going for you...
The unnecessary stress evaporates away.
And happiness sinks in.
