Life without problems is like lemonade without lemons. No one can exist without the other.
Life and troubles are the two sides of the same coin. Irrespective of how much effort we try to put into tackling our problems, problems are never going to stop. And this is the bitter truth we must all accept.
However, no matter how noxious the situation might be, “every cloud has the silver lining”.
This can not be understood and experienced more clearly than in this pandemic situation. The pandemic catastrophically impacted the entire humankind, still, it had its silver lining. On one side the pandemic sorrowfully separated many people from their loved ones, but on the other side, it united many people. It gave us a chance to rejoin with our family, and understand the happiness that lies in living together.
Though every cloud has a silver lining, we should try to only focus on the ‘silver lining’, and attract the positive side of the difficulty.
No problem would seem as big as a mountain or as violent as a storm if we just find hope and maintain a positive attitude.
And this can not be understood more distinctly than the words of Albus Dumbledore,
“Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.”
‘Silver linings’ in the dark, stormy clouds are the manifestation of hope amid the calamity. It enlightens us with the fact that no problem on this earth has come without having a solution. We just need a positive attitude to attract the cure.
People often get frightened of encountering problems and they let it hijack their minds. They just could not calm down their mind and let despair and gloom consume them. In this case, it is very necessary to have control over one’s mind. Getting frightened of the situation only drowns you in it, rather than lifting you. Be hopeful and positive while planning to counter your problems. It’s the only possible way to get out of any misery.
“We must not accept finite disappointments and lose infinite hope”.
-Martin Luther King Jr.
