what is darkness and happiness

soul on fire
Posted March 24, 2018 from India

We all have our own darkness or complications in our lives in our own way. It's different for everyone but for sure it leaves us with a bunch of emotions like sadness, anger etc . which can be relatable. We all wanna get rid of our problems or the darknesses and live "happily ever after". But guess what, there is "no happily ever after".

Once my close friend gave me a piece of advice through a quote that "Life is simple, but we complicate it"

  But if you think about it if our life is simple it would be so boring. The complications in our life give us life lessons and it makes us gear up our courage. Well in my case, I am gonna welcome my problems with wide open arms. If my life was happy and carefree I would be living in a protective layer of fairytale and fairytales are not real.

I am strong, confident, and independent. Like everyone else, I also have my darkness and yes I also scream, cry and I'll go crazy and then eventually I will face my fears (not all of them but most of them) So, as usual, I started thinking that in between all these problems how am I gonna find my happiness?Well according to me, every now and then the darknesses of my life will try to search for light. Which is when I became strong, confident and independent and that search of light is my real happiness

  If the darkness of my life can bring a better version of myself. I am gonna make a memory out of it and cherish the happiness of my life

If you are afraid of the darknesses of your life and it's locked in a box like mine was, Open it and face them. You will be surprised to see another better version of you and trust me after facing each one of them you will say "I've GOT  THE  POWER". Because I  definitely said that.

STAY AWESOME

Hi there... you've changed your alias... love it!!!! That certainly is a healthy perspective. Most of us want to hide from the darkness and any complications. You are very strong and intelligent to realize that life's challenges are opportunities for growth, development and ultimately joy.

Hey Soorya Soul On Fire,

This poem is so inspiring. Yes, facing those deep questions of what to do, what direction, where to find our inner strength, take courage and bring such great lessons. "If the darkness of my life can bring a better version of myself. I am gonna make a memory out of it and cherish the happiness..." I love this quote! Power on, Sister!

Thank you so much
As a teenager, I was always confused I wanted to run away from everything and one day I stopped
And now I am so glad that I made that decision

Soorya I love reading your stories. I think that quote is from Arundathi Roy, it was the first part my speech in Kanthari, Kerala in 2013, I agree with you, life will be boring without any challenges.

We can face our challenges and overcome always, each challenge conquered gives a crown of wisdom.
Please keep on writing
