The Original Text:
In this society that emphasizes on the packaging, we would sometimes inevitably envy other people’s good looks, and lament about our own imperfection.
But in my years of experience, I have discovered that there’s no one life that is perfect, everyone has a lack of something.
Some couples are very loving, monthly salary of 10K+, but they could have problems bearing child.
Some people have the looks and talent, but could have a rough time in relationships.
Some people have lots of money, but they don’t have filial children.
Some people look to have a good life, but their brain could be empty all their life.
Everyone’s life has been designed with imperfections,you may not want it, but it will follow you.
I used to hate my imperfection, but now I have learnt to accept it with open arms. Because I understand that the flaw in life is like a spike on our backs, reminding us to be humble and to emphatise with others.
If there are no hardships, we will be complacent. If there is no depression, we cannot emphatise and console those who are less fortunate.
I also believe that life cannot be too perfect, having a crack to let happiness flow to others is a beautiful thing.
You don’t have to have everything. If you have everything, what’s left for the others?
Also recognise that life has flaws,that I will not compare myself with others, instead cherish what you already have.
So, don’t go around envying others, count the blessings that Heaven has bestowed upon you, you will find that there are more things that you have than things that you don’t have
And what you do not have, although not lovable, is very much part of your life,
accept and appreciate it, and your life will be much happier.
If you are a clam, do you want to bear all the pains to produce a pearl...or you do not want the pearl and choose to live comfortably?!
If you are a mouse, you suddenly find yourself captured in a rat trap and in front of you is a piece of delicious cake, do you eat the cake or not?!
Early piggy banks are made of clay, once it is filled, it has to be broken…
If there is such a piggy bank, no money has been put into it, until today and it has become a very priceless antique…Which piggy bank do you wish to be?!
Everytime you think of it, note down your answers…
Until a day when your answers does not change…
Then you are mature!
