How satisfied are you with your life?
I know it’s a tough one to answer. Some may say yes, some may say no. Some may be satisfied up to some extent, but not up to the level they would have liked. Why are most humans always dissatisfied with their lives? What is the problem behind it? Why can’t we be happy with what we have and simply enjoy our lives? This has many reasons.
There are many aspects to why a person may be dissatisfied with their life. One main factor is their job. A good job can make or break a person. If you are a person who managed to follow your dreams through and end up working your dream job then you are hardly ever dissatisfied. However this is rarely the case. We don’t always land upon our dream job. Most of us just choose a job mainly to support us in our finances. It may be a job you like, or hate. It maybe a job you chose hoping it would grow you, but it may not have happened. It may be a job you expected to benefit from but you haven’t. So what can you do?
I think it is very important for you to find a job that makes you happy. Even if you have a lot of hard work if it’s a job you like doing you will not even feel as if you are working. It will be a full time hobby that gets you paid! The happier you are with your job, the more satisfied you will be with your life. However, your job isn’t the only thing that can make or break you. There’s family!
A good supportive family is what every one of us dream of. A mother who loves us unconditionally; a father who encourages us in what we do; siblings who support us and help us especially when we are in trouble; these are the joys of a happy family. However, how many of us actually live in a family like this?
If you look at the society today the number of couples going through a divorce has sky rocketed, most of them having children. Out of the non divorced couples many are facing problems and fighting. A child from a broken or troubled family is forever going to be a troubled child dissatisfied with his/her own life. In-fact this child may even hate their own life! Even when it comes to brothers and sisters, most siblings nowadays hate each other. They could either be jealous of each other, or hate each other for various reasons. Some couples divide children among them when getting a divorce. In such families children are expected to choose between parents. How many friends do you have who are going through such problems, with parents or siblings? You may even be one of them. So what can we do?
First of all you should never get married unless you are 100% sure of your partner and you are 100% sure you want to spend the rest of your life with him/her. This means accepting each other for who they are and supporting them in their decisions no matter what. This is a sacred promise that needs to be kept throughout your years together, until death. Then there are children!
When it comes to children you need to make sure that you provide them with the best and ensure their future is secured. You should never let a child go through any traumatic experience such as fighting with your partner in front of them. This will leave a big scar on them for life! You should also guide and encourage your kids to follow their dreams and support them in everything they do. Most of all you need to encourage peace and unity among your children, and even among your own siblings. These are qualities of good parents and by doing this you are making sure your kids are satisfied with their lives.
Finally, the most important thing when it comes to satisfaction is inner peace. You need to be trouble free, relaxed, enjoying life as it is, no matter what. This is where God comes in. If you have a good religious life you will not fail. God will guide you and help you in what you want to achieve and where you want to be. Therefore, have a good relationship with God. No matter what religion you are from, if you have a good religious life things will fall into place. Once this happens each day when you go to sleep in the night you will be happy. You will be satisfied!
