Why Does That Unpleasant Experience Keep Happening In My Life?

A prudent man sees danger and takes refuge,
but the simple keep going and suffer for it.
Proverbs 22:3

This is a simple proverb and yet give us a very powerful principle.

When you see danger, take refuge (or take actions to avoid it).

If you keep going and suffer for it, you'd be a simple (or foolish) person.

Is there something unpleasant in your life that keeps recurring?

Why does it keep recurring in your life?

Have you thought about the causes of your suffering?

Could it be you that is the cause of your own suffering?

What steps have you taken to remove that danger (or obstacle, barrier) to prevent that suffering?

Whether it be money problems, relationship problems, work-related problems, or any other sort of problems, in most cases, there are solutions to these problems.

There are already many books, blogs, and other helpful resources on the problems mentioned above available on the internet.

It's only a few clicks away, or a few searches on Amazon or just a few minutes of googling to find solutions to problems we already have.

Let's get started. Rather than keep going and suffer for it, let us recognise danger and take refuge.

And I'm talking to myself here as well, otherwise I'd be a complete hypocrite.
