Do you ever find yourself wondering how you can be happy when there are so many people suffering in the world?

Yes, all the time, and it sickens me!
Yea, but I just try not to let it ruin my day.
Meh, it doesn't bother me.
You!

Every once in a while when I'm having a fantastic day and I'm super happy, I'll start thinking about all the suffering that goes on in the world and I wonder to myself how I can possibly be happy when people are dying or starving or getting raped, etc. All of that is happening right now, while you're reading this. It bothers me a little. Not enough do something about it. But still... what do you think?

    It sucks that they took down the pic, but I know what you mean. There are just so many people that have life so rough and it sucks.

    It's easy to spiral down the emotional commode when considering the plight of people around the world. When I was younger I was obsessed with the plight of humanity. It finally dawned on me that I only have my life to live and I can't wallow in remorse for lives I have no control over. I advocate helping people but adding my depression to theirs doesn't help anyone.

    I can only be happy for the things I have and strive to give my own children a good life. I can not blame myself or anyone else for the problems in other countries.

    We all suffer at one point in our lives. I don't like to see suffering. I help where I can in many areas. In fact, this weekend I am volunteering to help flood victims clean up. I can't imagine loosing my home, things, animals that way and I am sure it is starting to take it's toll on those who stress easily when life get's turned upside down.

    Ooo, I didn't think of that. Good one. But I think everyone should have happiness in their lives. Or else life's not worth living, right?

    So very true. But what is happiness? What is life?

    Normally I would actually try to answer this question of life and its meaning, but It's definitely almost 1 am and I need sleep for my exam prep. So this my Q to leave. G'night.

    Most def. So the only thing that I can do for them is pray for them.That god will blessed them. So many blessings that they don't have enough room in their hands to carry them all. And i'm trusting in him to do it for them.
