Ms BeLLe, I ask myself the same thing. Why them? Why not me? Why can't everyone on this planet have a reasonably happy life, with enough food to eat and never having to feel the pain of starvation? On one side, you have these insanely wealthy people with cars covered in diamonds, and on the opposite end, you have people who are dying from lack of nourishment, bodies covered with flies and maggots. These are the facts of life that I find extremely difficult to deal with. How can our world be so rich and yet so poor?
These are questions that I still ask myself to this day, and will probably continue to ask for the rest of my life. I had once thought that getting older means gaining a little bit of wisdom and having answers to life's difficult questions. This is not the case. All I have are questions and no answers. Some people say that we're not supposed to have all the answers and that all we need is to trust God completely.
But it's hard, sometimes. When you see a child starving or a person dealing with a debilitating illness, a part of you is relieved that it's not you...but a bigger part suffers...from guilt...why should it be them that suffer and not you? What lucky break made you able to enjoy three full meals a day when others are eating dirt?
Is suffering among people pre-ordained or is it merely a random occurrence?
(sorry peeps ha, I'm blabbing here...ms belle's post struck a chord)
Thyl, preha jud ta ug barko nga gisakyan!
and i think that made me not happy completely...
maybe im too emotional, and sometimes dili nalang ko motan-aw ug situation nga ingon ani...
Thyl, i can never be happy of what i am when there are more (lots) who are suffering...
I cant say to myself "Belle just be grateful ang happy of what God gave you"
because it is very selfish!!!
What about the others who really didnt have???
