What is Ungratefulness?

12:00 AM

I often feel guilty of not being grateful enough. My conundrum lies in the fact that life often gives me things which I did not really want or ask for, but they make my life more comfortable and appear wonderful from an outside perspective. Hence, making me guilty. But since I do not want those things, how can I force myself to feel grateful? Can I still want (and aspire for) things which my heart desires without sounding like someone who is never content with what she has? 

Of course, I can never be thankful enough for having a roof over my head, food on my plate and clothes on my body. Everything else is just plain luxury. Don't I get to choose the luxury I would like though? Sometimes things come your way by the virtue of birth, circumstances or luck. However, what about the other things which your soul desires? Is wanting more an act of ungratefulness? Or not being thankful for things which you didn't want is ungratefulness? Who decides?

  1. I wrote my post on my blog today last night. In it, I complain about still being 10-15 pounds above my pre-pregnancy weight despite all of my efforts. Then, after writing it, I watched a documentary with my husband on maternal deaths by childbirth in the Middle East. Women giving birth without doctors or medicine or prenatal care and having a 1 in 23 chance of dying giving birth. One woman was having twins. She gave birth to one, but the other wouldn't come out. So she drove to a river, rowed a boat across the shore to an ambulance and then gave birth to the second baby. She later died of a hemorrhage. Hearing stories like that really made my post silly and superficial. At least when I had my baby, I had an epidural to completely rid myself of the pain. There were no complications for him or me--we were both healthy and just fine. I feel like a real ass complaining about such trivial matters.

    1. I know what you mean Frannie! But that's my point, do our problems become trivial only because someone else's are bigger than ours? Don't every life and its circumstances form its unique set of issues? I guess ... it is a grey area and opinions change on daily basis, at least mine!

      Thanks for sharing! Xx
