Questioning The Events In Our Life
Curiosity is the eagerness to know or learn something. We are often curious to learn more about why things happen the way they do in our life. Sometimes we receive happy news which makes us jump off our feet, while at other times, we are confronted with such terrible news that suicidal thoughts start to lurk into our mind.
Many times, we have no explanation for the random events in our life. We often sit alone and try to analyze what we could have done differently. If there is a learning point to take away from a certain event, then learn from the experience and avoid repeating the same mistake in the future.
But quite often, you will find that you cannot come up with a reasonable explanation as to why something turned out the way it did. The worst thing that you can do is to ruminate over the event; this distracts you from putting your best foot forward and moving on with your life.
Our entire life has been a process of looking for answers; this process will continue on moving forward. Life is like a classroom since the day we entered preschool; we will never stop learning. That’s because we will never leave the classroom; life will continue to teach us lessons until the day we die.
No matter how painful the lessons taught to you by life are, you have to do your best to learn from them and move on. The people who have trouble learning from painful lessons are the ones who have a higher chance of developing a mental illness. Unresolved pain promotes depression, anxiety and suicidal thoughts.
Don’t get too stuck on looking for answers. Life will provide them to you if it’s meant to be.
