I have seen a couple of people related / close to me who had a illness / suffering. One of them took it like “God choose me to have this suffering..I am the chosen one”. Went through Cancer treatment ..well almost laughing. The other person wanted the sympathies of everybody else. Went through a lot of pain and felt that ‘others’ were not helping
enough…etc. etc. and kept saying..”I have never done this..never done that..never harmed anybody..WHY ME?
Funny how 2 people react to the same situation differently. Here is a very nice story (incident) about Arthur Ashe:
Arthur Ashe, the legendary Wimbledon player was dying of AIDS. From world over, he received letters from his fans, one of which conveyed: “Why does GOD have to select you for such a bad disease”?
To this Arthur Ashe replied: The world over
500 million children start playing tennis,
5 million learn to play tennis,
5 Lakh learn professional tennis,
50,000 come to the circuit,
5000 reach the grand slam,
50 reach Wimbledon,
4 the semi final,
2 reach the finals,
When I was holding a cup I never asked GOD “Why me?”
And today in pain I should not be asking GOD “Why me?”
I find that most of our lives are a series of things we do..when things go fine, we connect the dots and say ‘This was strategy. When things go wrong, we say Fate.
Start asking ‘Why me’ when things go right, it will keep you on your feet. Then you remember “This too shall pass”
