Life can be happy and meaningful

Life Can Be Happy and Meaningful

Not long ago, a poll was conducted among students in a middle school. They were asked to make a choice between these two sentences—”No one can be happy, ” and “One can be happy.” Shockingly enough, about 20 percent of the students agreed to the first statement. When I asked some of my friends for their opinions, most of them thought the former statement was true. When asked for explanations, they said, “Frankly speaking, life is bitter and meaningless. But to live on, we’d better say to ourselves that there is happiness in life. “

I have since been thinking of this question. The more I think, the more I am convinced that if we have a right attitude towards life, our lives can surely be happy and meaningful.

It is true that all people have some bitter experiences. But it is through overcoming hardships that our happiness emerges. Many people admire Madam Curie, and say with a sigh, “If I could live like her, I would be the happiest person in the world.” But if we take a close look at her life, we will find her happiness is closely connected Tag Heuer Replica with her misfortunes. First of all, she did not have a happy childhood. When she was in France, she studied twice as hard as others but lived a poor and simple life. In her research work, she had to sit up late night after night. She experienced many losses, too—she lost her beloved father, her dear husband, and later her eyesight. But she never complained and never stopped working for the benefit of mankind. That is why her life was happy and meaningful. She fought against life’s bitterness and difficulties and conquered them all.

Some people complain that their work is insignificant and thus their lives are meaningless. But what kind of work is significant? Workers, peasants, teachers and scientists, they are all working for the welfare of mankind, themselves included. That is where the meaning of life lies. But some people seem to think little of such a life. Once a friend of mine told me he felt very wretched for having to work as a teacher. “Our lives can be compared to candles. While giving light to others, we ourselves are burning out. Our students may become famous one day, but what will become of us? We shall only remain what we are—fameless and wealthless. ” Paradoxically, I would rather think he was giving a vivid description of the nobleness of a teacher. If I can live the life of a teacher, to contribute the only thing I own—my knowledge—to the upbringing of young people, I will be very happy, because I am useful to others.

Different people may think of life differently. But of one thing I am certain’ happiness never favors those who merely care about themselves, and the meaning Replica Watches of life cannot be understood by those who refuse to sacrifice anything for others.

Atmosphere of sorrow and despair. The reader easily understands the plight of Selma and Gibran! As a result, it is almost natural for the reader to dislike the Bishop and his nephew and side with Selma and Gibran, and at the same time, to hate the arranged marriage based on power and money, which is also an important theme of the story. —After Victor C. Pellegrino
