So often people try to equate wealth with happiness. Many have this unrealistic believe that if you are rich all your problems disappear. They fail to realize that rich or poor people have problems. Having money doesn’t mean that you won’t get ill. It doesn’t mean you are immune to drug addiction, heartbreak, betrayal or other ills that ordinary people struggle with in their lives.
One must always remember that rich or poor people are human with feelings and emotions. Rich people are likely to make mistakes like everyone else. Riches or celebrity status does not make anyone immune to life’s problems. We all have our struggles so we should never be envious and have lack empathy for others.
One of the things plaguing society today is poor parenting. Too many children are growing up without role models they can emulate. The weakness of our men in regard to being responsible and showing moral and mental strength have resulted in many single parent homes where raising the children is left solely on the women. Yes we have weak women too because we have single parent homes with fathers playing both roles. However overall the number of single female households way outnumber the men. This is a clear indication that as parents our women are way stronger than our men.
Too many men seem to suffer from the Georgie Porgie syndrome. It is all sweet and dandy in the relationship until a child come into the picture then like scared little boys they run away. Weak people are always seeking the easy way out of a situation and for many men and some women turning their backs on their responsibilities is the easy way.
Every child needs at least one strong parent. So if you are that strong parent in your child or children’s life be proud and do your best to raise them right. For all you struggling single mothers, stay strong. At times it will get rough but hold on. Children grow up and someday you will look back with pride on a job well done. To all the weak men who are still running, grow up, be a man. A strong man or woman never turn their backs on their children. Only the weak ones do.
When we look around and see the things that are happening it is easy to get discouraged and lose hope in humanity. This is so much hate, inequality, injustice and lack of empathy for others. However, amid it all we must keep hope like a small fire burning in our hearts. Believe things will get better. Keep faith that something better is waiting on the horizon. A positive attitude is necessary to beat the odds.
Life has many challenging moments. No matter where you are financially, emotionally or what your social status is, you will encounter one of those moments. It often takes great will power not to cave in when life gets too much and problems seem overwhelming. In those moments staying positive is easier said than done. However no matter how trying our circumstances we must believe in something. Believe that things will get better. Believe that bad times don’t last. Believe that there is hope even on dark days. Believe that life will get better.
