Don’t Compare yourselves – You are Unique

In My Shoes

You can experience joy in suffering. This is what separates joy from happiness. Happiness is man made and often relies on the praises of others, Michael from the TiC Team.

The causes of joy have been ascribed to various sources. “When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.” Gautama Buddha, “[Joy is] the emotional dimension of the good life, of a life that is both going well and is being lived well.”Miroslav Volf, “This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being thoroughly worn out before you are thrown on the scrap heap; the being a force of Nature instead of a feverish selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy.” George Bernard Shaw and “Find a place inside where there’s joy, and the joy will burn out the pain.” Joseph Campbell.
