A few days ago, my dear Thomas and I had a discussion about how we look at all our apparent problems in life. Thomas talk about how life really is just a game and when we realise how simple the complicated stuff we made them to be actually is, we can laugh about it and realised how silly our problems are. All our apparent problems disappears and life becomes so easy once we understood something. ( It has got to do with our thoughts. A thought is harmless unless we believe it. If a thought can bring us suffering, likewise, we can turn it around and the same exact thoughts that brought us suffering can bring us happiness. ) He talks about life like a game, and everything, even the most difficult aspects of our life, like relationships, becomes easy when we learn to meet our thoughts and emotions with understanding. Well Thomas didn't say all of these 😅lololol, I just interpret it based on my own understanding, but I just really like how he use Game as an analogy to Life. And I think that if we can understand the "what" we attached to our thoughts and emotions, the "how" becomes so clear, we become a lover of what it is. And like in a game, in life, we play.
I like to think that as with in a game, in Life, sometimes you win and sometimes you lose. Winning is great, but I learnt from my experiences that losing is necessary for us to grow into a strong person. With every bad experience, with people or situations, don't take it personally, I have learnt to only take the lessons and nothing else from a horrible experience i had here in Europe and move on. I learnt that i can skip the forgiveness part and go straight to moving on when forgiveness is too difficult. And above all, when you lose, lose without losing heart. ❤ #melsolotrippin #bekindtoyourselfmel
