‘Why not me God’ instead of ‘Why me God’ ?

Why not me instead why me ?,life


Why not me instead of why me ?

Existence is a strange bargain.Life owes us little;we owe it everything. The only true happiness comes from squandering ourselves for a purpose.’William Cowpe”

Every one has to face some problem or other.

Describing somebody that ‘the fellow is born with silver spoon’ is utter rubbish.

Everybody has to undergo suffering.

Whether the person suffers from cancer or just mild fever,or any other reason doesn’t matter.

Whether the person is rich or poor,doesn’t matter.

Good or bad doesn’t matter.

Whether the person is pious or unholy ,doesn’t matter.

Whether the person is criminal or law-abiding doesn’t matter.

Whether the person is moral or immoral doesn’t matter.

Whether a new-born suffers or a 100+ old person suffers doesn’t matter.

I can go on and on….

The point I am trying to stress is ,there is no escape from suffering once you are born.

The only difference is , some suffer more and some suffer less.

Again I don’t have an answer.

Life is pleasant. Death is peaceful. It’s the transition that’s troublesome. Isaac Asimov

When one suffers,the first question one puts invariable is “Oh God ! why me ?” as if one is pure (at heart on par with Almighty), and rest of the population deserves to suffer.

Remember there are others in this world,whose suffering is more than yours.

Instead,why can’t one boldly say ” why not me ?”,since life owes us nothing

By saying so, Are we not gaining confidence in ourselves to face the eventuality ?

To be frank, why should one get exemption from suffering in one’s life ?

Is this not God’s way of telling us to be


Develop courage,

Search for solutions( inventions,science etc)

Improve inner strength,

Understand the meaning of life ( philosophy),

Know the value of time.

So we are thankful to the Almighty for giving us an opportunity to survive and gain strength from sufferings.

So our thoughts should be

Why not me instead of why me ?
What are your thoughts ?Do you agree or You do not ?If you do not agree what is the reason ?Thank you.   Philosophy through photography

  2. “Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure or it is nothing.” Helen Keller
