Quick Write 092911 "Trouble is the beginning of Health"

“There are a few good things in the world. Love is one of them. Love is a gem. Love is one of those rare things in the world that is pretty much good all around. It arises free of cost and does no harm in the feeling of it; it only elevates and brings joy. I know it also threatens. But for a moment let us please look not at how it threatens but at how it brings spontaneous pleasure.”

This is how Cary Tennis at Salon.com responds to a lady who’s been suffering from the shadow of her fiancé’s ex-girlfriend. She is very much willing to spend her whole life with the guy, but has been afflicted by a gnawing sense whether he’d still be seeing his ex. Cary’s responses of “Since You Asked” always impress me with their pureness, simplicity, thoughtfulness, and affection towards his readers. Simple but powerful. Astute yet warm. I wish I could write like him someday, knowing it’s pretty much close to impossible. Throughout the piece, Cary keeps suggesting that she ask her fiancé to tell her his true feelings and face the reality. I’ve found another wonderful line that encourages the lady to take the situation positively for better relationship with her future husband.

“What if ‘trouble’ is the beginning of ‘health’?”

Very true. So true. But it’s often the case with me that even though my “logical” brain understands how well trouble could work for much healthier situations, my “emotional” soul refuses to do so, and lets the fear of having a close look at the trouble overwhelm me. Such cowardice often surfaces and tortures me even though I’m full aware that the revealed truth hurts me a little for a while, but the pain will eventually nourishes my soul.
