Unhappiness is a bad thing. While there are many causes of this phenomenon in man’s life, some of them are trivial: they are not supposed to cause unhappiness at all. Some of the causes of unhappiness in life might be: joblessness, death of a relative, financial challenge, shape of our body, our height, and so on and so forth.
If we look at all the causes of unhappiness, some of them are things that can change, while others are things that cannot change, they are permanent. Examples of temporary source of unhappiness include joblessness, financial challenge, and our body shape. Examples of permanent source of unhappiness include death of a relative, our height and our look.
If we are unhappy based on things that can change, it therefore means we can regain our state of happiness back. However, if we are unhappy based on things that we don’t have power to change, it means we would forever be sad; and that is dangerous for our health. We don’t need to be unhappy on situation we cannot change! We actually need our health to succeed in life!
The question now is, “why should we be unhappy based on a factor we don’t have power to change?” One of such factors is our look. One of our Holy Books, the Bible admonishes us in Romans 9:20 on this matter, it reads – “Nay but, O man, who are you that reply against God? Shall the thing formed say to him that formed it, why have you made me thus?”
Anything you don’t have power to change, don’t brood on it. Accept the situation the way it is, and ride on to success. You are unique with your look!
By for now & best wishes!
