The Clear-Cut Answer to Why People Suffer
People find it’s tough to live without sufficient money. People suffer when they can’t breathe with sufficient love. Regardless of the fact and truth, as a person truly believes he/she is not being loved, he/she is doomed to suffer more than he/she deserves. The belief of not being loved can potentially torture a man to death, emotionally or even physically.
Will it better by removing love from life? As we remove love from life, we remove happiness from life. Those who remove love from life tend to protect themselves from getting another heartbreak. There will be no more heartbreak, but there will be endless solitude and unshakable sense of emptiness. That’s why the rich suffer. They seek binge eating to comfort their hearts. It only works for the moment. You can’t stuff yourself 24 hours a day.
Do we desire too much from the world?
I don’t have much ambition for the world. I don’t have many desires. I never aim to get a fancy car or a splendid house. A spacious house is never easy to tidy up unless you get a housekeeper. A spacious house can be more lonely if you are all alone without anyone to talk to.
I don’t want much from the world. However, I desire to be loved and with someone close enough to share any feelings. It’s a sad thing that people tend to tell me that I deserve more or I should have more. Adults are judged by their income. People don’t have much time to know much about you. Some risk their lives to earn a little more, trying to be good enough in the eyes of the public. Does that resonate with your situation?
They told me that money solves problems. It’s true, but money can’t solve mental problems. Life can be beautiful, but life is not always easy. People try to tell you that there’s something wrong with you if you do not choose a presentable job with a profitable income when it is possible. I sense worries from my mom at times. I came to realize she will never stop worrying about me for being a mom no matter how much money in my bank account. She is a worrier. She suffered from poverty in her early days, which somehow explicates her persistent sense of insecurity. As I get to know more about her childhood and early life, I understood her mindset more.
Situated in a global capitalist society, people are trying hard to upgrade their survival skills and they rarely have time to treat their old mental wounds. People suffer for hiding their vulnerabilities. Human beings don’t need that much money for a living. However, people are afraid of being identified as the weak, the disadvantaged, the useless, or even the loser.
As the world tends to believe there is a link between wealth and superiority, the world is in trouble. The Bible raises the question that “For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world and forfeit his soul?” (Mark 8:36). The Bible reminds us to “Be on your guard against all covetousness, for one’s life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions” because “He who loves money will not be satisfied with money, nor he who loves wealth with his income; this also is vanity” (Luke 12:15, Ecclesiastes 5:10).

Real wealth is owning your time to do what you love and what you believe. Real wealth is the freedom to spend your weekend with your loved ones. Real wealth is you do have your life and you do not pay someone else to please the world.
TAKE ADVICE FROM THE BIBLE
Affluenza is more life-threatening than COVID- 19. People work so hard and meanwhile they suffer from self-denial and self-hatred. People are trapped due to foolish social prejudice as the majority of people are tricked to believe that income or wealth level is the justification or manifestation of a person’s ability or personal achievement.
It’s good to be sufficient on all sides, which is more likely to be a fantasy. The sad truth is that people are just trying to have a better life than their peers. People desire to be envied or to be superior to others instead of supporting others. The world can be cold and lonely if it’s all about competition. There will be walls everywhere living inside people’s hearts.
Pride is the capital sin among the seven deadly sins in the Bible because pride incites conflicts, heated arguments, discrimination and even bullying in all forms. Pride creates more misunderstanding, misconception, and misery. Bible values the importance of compassion in which is rare in the global materialistic society. As foolish ideology persists, the world can never be free and no individuals can be truly free.
People do not die of poverty but desperation. People are desperate to be loved, to be unconditionally loved. The feeling and the belief of “I am being loved” are the requirements to keep a person alive without mental suffering.
