When faced with problems and life’s harsh dilemmas most of us become sad and depressed. Ask yourself however, of what value is it to dwell on the sadness and pain? Will it contribute anything constructive to the situation or will it just make things worse? Remember the adage, “whoever is drawn after suffering, suffering draws after him”. The challenge in life is to transform all the darkness into light by turning all the pain and suffering into great joy.
