If I have learned one thing from living with chronic pain everyday, it’s that we live in a world where irritability and frustration often comes easier than happiness. It seems easier to notice the things that upset us most in life than to appreciate those things that truly make us smile….
But I am here to tell you that there is still hope! I truly believe that the best way to fight back against anger, frustration and irritability is to be kind to others. That’s right. On your worst days, find ways to make others smile and that will make you happier. Take it from me. On the days where my pain in unbearable, I find ways to make others smile and somehow it makes my pain subside. It truly is remarkable.
It’s a testament to the importance of living for others. If you spend your life living solely for your own personal gain, you don’t stand a chance against the stress of life. But if you choose to spend your time making the lives of others better – the anger, frustration and irritability you face in life is suddenly outmatched.
Don’t believe me? Try it. The next time you are having a terrible day, hold the door for a stranger and see what happiness. When you get angry in traffic (trust me on this one), let someone pull out in front of you at a busy intersection. Simple acts of kindness for others can make even the darkest of days seem just a little brighter.
If we cant run with from the stress of life than that only leaves us one alternative; find better to deal with it!
