A friend of mine was listening to my grief when she suddenly told me something. I did not understand when she first said that, I told her to repeat what she said. After hearing that I really dig into my heart.
She said, “Laughter diminishes when you hear a joke over and over again, and laughter does not come when you hear the same joke again. Then she said, why do you think of tragedy again and again and crying, sadness should end same as happiness isn’t it?
I recently saw a movie on Netflix and some dialogues in it touched my heart. The name of the movie is Brian Bank. The film tells the story of an incident that took place in real life.
“It’s not what you go through, but how that experience affects you. For some people, it could be a near car crash that changes your life. For other people, it could take five years of going to prison for them to realize they need change in their life. So it’s not really the experience but more how the experience affects you.”-Brian
“I’ve had the opportunity to see both sides of the human spirit. I’ve seen those who will put you down, demean you, brand you, and have a one-track mind of destruction. But I’ve also seen people who uplift you. I’ve been on a journey unlike any others.”-Brian
“The biggest thing you must remember is the mindset you have – what were the initial things you said to yourself as a young kid? Everything you said, that’s who you are.” Brian
“The path to happiness begins and ends in the mind. Free your mind”
One thing I understand from all of this is that you always have to ask yourself what you want in your life Happiness or Sadness. Mind is programmed to always remember negativity or sadness or accidents but we can re-program over and what we want in life. Because we always deserve happiness.
