This too, shall pass – One Quote to Handle Happiness and Pain
Over the past few months I have experienced overwhelming joy and pain, both to an extreme extent at different points in time. Feeling the joy or happiness is an awesome experience, I bet no one would argue about that.
But handling pain, in many scenarios, became exceptionally hard for me. At one point, I just couldn’t resist myself from controlling my emotions. I would barely eat and sleep. I read and wrote a lot to escape the trauma caused by the series of incidents in my life. Sure, reading and writing gave me some relief but nothing had managed to clam my soul.
And that’s when I came across this masterpiece.
This too, shall pass.
This famous four word sentence had brought a good change in my life. I’m sure it can surely calm your soul to a good extent when you remember it, in times of pain. In fact, it has the ability to make the happy person sad and the sad person happy because of the realization that both the ‘best and worst of times’ will soon pass.
I liked this quote because it teaches a great lesson. No matter how hard life gets, at some point in time, things will get better, sooner or later. It also reminds me of this inspiring video that I created long back, in which steve jobs says.. “Life hits you in the head with a brick, don’t loose faith!”. It’s amazing video, do watch it.
