NO PHOTOSET HAS MADE ME HAPPIER.
MY FAVORITE PHOTOSET IS BACK
I WILL NEVER NOT LOVE THIS PHOTSET
People don’t deserve what they have. I don’t. Nobody does. Even if I worked hard for something and got it, whatever I received was because of circumstances surrounding it that enabled my hard work to be rewarded. I don’t deserve that circumstance working in my favour, it was given to me. The same circumstance was not given to every one in the world, and it’s not like I did anything to deserve a better circumstance than a starving child in Africa. It sounds unfair and can be painful to swallow if we are the ones who feels that life is unfair to us, but that’s only because we measure fairness and deservingness with our limited perception. We didn’t create this world and we don’t own it, yet we define for ourselves how justice should work. That’s the problem, isn’t it?
Here’s it. Our measure of deservingness determines how we treat people and how we treat ourselves.
If we give people what they deserve, things get ugly. But if we give people what they need, it’s simply beautiful. That’s what the world so desperately needs, isn’t it?
The cross of Jesus Christ is the perfect example of giving to the undeserving what they need. Men fell short of the perfect standard of God, in other words we all have sinned and deserve punishment. Yet, Jesus Christ chose to die on the cross to pay for our sins. Why should we not live like this as well?
Don’t give people what they deserve, give them what they need. Forgiveness, encouragement, appreciation, recognition, respect, trust, protection, care, concern, patience, friendship, handshakes, smiles, hugs, kisses etcetera. We don’t deserve it and we never will, but we need it and we always will.
Learn to focus on what’s important. Prioritize and constantly remind yourself of what matters to you. If you don’t remind yourself of the important things in life on a regular basis, you’ll forget what you’re living for. Let go of the petty matters.
