Words of wisdom: Troubles and boxes

“Troubles are like boxes. Once you open them, they are not as big as they appear to be.” – Yip Pei Shan

This nugget of wisdom was coined when I saw the many boxes in my house and pondering over my friend’s issues. Big ones, small ones, all of them in varying shapes and sizes. Perhaps we can make a mountain out of a molehill, or even attempting to find a needle in a haystack. However, what’s the purpose of doing so? It only serves to bring you on a spiral of negativity. It exhausts you of the energies that could be used to combat the troubles. Moreover, like a vampire, you suck your loved ones down with you. Even the littlest of things can appear to be huge problems, which on further examination, are not as big as they appear to be.

Hence, I liken troubles to be like boxes. Boxes always need to be larger than the items inside in order to contain them adequately. All sorts of things can be inside, and once you see them, get acquainted with them intimately, the mystery is solved.

Have you any boxes of troubles? More importantly, have you opened your box? Most importantly, have you clearly examined what is inside your box? Do that, resolve your negativities, and the trouble is no longer a trouble, and just an issue to be dealt with.
