From time to time our obligations evolve into something so big and time consuming we cannot focus on our ability to think and function rationally. Our focus becomes disorganized and erratic. This emotional state leads to exasperation and we become very dejected. It becomes hard to eat, sleep, and maintain a sense of happiness around others.
Some people would say enormous obligations are the price we pay for being human and they are probably correct. The price for being human is easily tossed around but that price is difficult to understand when we are struggling for existence in a world which requires prudent thought and actions. Many people face immense commitments due to work, family dilemmas, health issues, or personal issues. Numerous people must face these obligations daily, they may not be equipped to handle them or to find a way that balances their life with their obligations. These tremendous responsibilities seek to drain every ounce of energy and they demand so much time our happiness suffers.
When we are submerged with the weight of massive obligations, whether at home, at work, or with friends, or family, there is no other way to surface except to face our commitments courageously each day until we can find a way to live peacefully with our obligations and manage them.
Each day can be a struggle, if we recognize this, we can overcome the burdens which seek to control our life. Some people are able to rise to the occasion and free them self from the grasp of obligations that control their life. Others desperately need our help to intervene with compassion and guide them to understand how some obligations are controlling their life. Facing our responsibilities head on can bring freedom and happiness.
May the overwhelming obligations that seek to conquer our happiness be lifted and may we share our happiness with those we love. We all deserve happiness and balance in our life.
