Silent Thoughts – To have misery

4 Jul 2008 | Wisdom |  23 comments

English Translation
People always seek “to have”,
but “to have” is actually to have misery.

Original Mandarin Version

Deimos Analyzes – For Non-Bloggers
This is pretty straight forward, when people wanted to have something, they will attempt to acquire it. Unable to acquire what they want, they might feel miserable.

Deimos Analyzes – For Bloggers
Many bloggers are blogging for money, after realizing that it is not as easy as it appears to be, many quit. This is a good thing actually, as the sub par blogs will die off.

The Sims
The image used in the banner is from the game – The Sims and that Sim is looking quite miserable. To be honest, Deimos is feeling quite miserable these few days as well.

Deimos’s Thoughts
Today is the last day of Deimos’s Hong Kong Macau tour and he ought to reach LCCT Malaysia by around 11:30pm-ish. This is a scheduled post, courtesy of the WordPress blog publishing system. Hopefully, Deimos would be happier after going on a vacation trip.

What do you do to cheer yourself up when you are feeling miserable?

    it’s kinda like human nature
    to always yearn for the better though.
    when i’m miserable ..
    i blog about it (since the emotion is most sincere at its “peak”),
    i cry, i blast the music, or i sleep through it.

    Why are you feeling so miserable. You are a successful blogger. You may not make a great deal of money on it, but you are regular and it will eventually take you there.

    Nothing like a hot chocolate, an inspiring book after a shower that will follow a brisk walk to clear my head, is my formula for getting rid of the blues and to cheer myself up.

    I guess too many bloggers (successful ones) are sometimes trying to show off their earnings, thus this makes those who are trying to be them, do almost everything to earn money fast, and in the end, most of them failed. This leads to misery….

    or something like that…..

    Cheer up! Recent research suggests that despite all the bad news amidst we live in, people are actually getting happier!


    As for feeling depressed because of being unable to get what you want, hey, you’re a Buddhist, and Buddhists are supposed to not yearn for things, and hence should not be disappointed if they fail to get something they yearn for.

    Supposedly a recent episode of “60 Minutes” investigated why the Danes are among the happiest people on Earth and it turns out that the people in Denmark are generally a gloomy and morose people who think the worst of what the future will hold, and so when things turn out not to be as bad as they expected, they’re happy!

    LOL. Blogging for money really sucks – that’s why I do blog for money coz I suck at it. Hehe. But seriously, there is no money in blogging – its in some other online business and affiliate marketing. But feeling miserable? Nahhh, I always think about your Perseverance Silent Thoughts and that’s keeping me going and going. Success won’t happen in just a few months. 🙂

    By the way, I was in Hong Kong too! I was there 3 – 7 July.
    I found that I am more miserable after the HK trip.. pocket empty 😐

    I don’t do things to cheer myself up. I just forget what’s making me feel down.

    About your statement “Many bloggers are blogging for money, after realizing that it is not as easy as it appears to be, many quit. This is a good thing actually, as the sub par blogs will die off.” I do agree. it is disappointing sometimes that several bloggers quit, and stop making their goals a reality. Making money with blogging is hard at first… but it requires patience and determination.

    The less the competition, the better eh? 😀


    But the problem is still there if not solved! 😯


    Blog for passion, money will come in later, hopefully. 🙂


    @Nicole Price:
    Various issues in my part of the physical realm ain’t doing too well. ➡


    Copy caters would never succeed! 😎


    Like that also considered marketing skill meh? 💡


    Keep on blogging though, I enjoy watching those action figure screen shots. 🙂


    @Wan Kong Yew:
    Thanks for the cheer. Guess I need much of those now. 🙂
    Interesting research you got there. :mrgreen:


    You got good anime related stuff, keep ’em coming! 😳


    Good search engine traffic does brings in more Google Adsense clicks though. 💡


    These few days, I think I am in a state of depression. 😯
    Regarding the trip, I was in Hong Kong from 30 June to 3 July. 🙂
    3 July to 4 July was in Macau, reached LCCT around 11:30pm-ish. :mrgreen:
    For my case, unable to forget what is making me feel miserable. 😮
    Need to focus on how to solve the problem or else feel more miserable. 😕


    @Hye Munar:
    I came across blogs that just stopped updating completely. 😯
    Totally wasted, I would say. ➡

    I do agree that when one does not attain what he wants,he get misarable. I think it’s human nature. But I think we should think first if those things we want are important. If not, then there’s no point of being miserable, right?

    When you don’t get what you want, don’t get miserable, get active in another domain. Maybe it wasn’t good for you to have that anyway.
