One of the questions that I often ask people is a simple straight forward question. How is your life? The awkward is that majority of times people reply with the same answer: Not so bad, thanks!…
I always reply saying: Ok, so that means something is bad isn’t it? It takes a while for people to realize that it’s true!…Something is definitely bad!..
The issue is not on the answer, rather on the way of thinking. It’s like the person is saying:
- Never mind this situation
- It’s better if I don’t think about it
- Let me avoid that conversation
- I don’t want trouble
- I don’t care
- I can’t complain, others are worst
- Let me turn a blind eye to it
It shows complacency and acceptance of the problem, trying to skip or avoiding a way to deal with it. What can that person expect? Can the problem be sorted out?
Another view of the issue is to accept what we call AVERAGE.
I mean, average is not so bad isn’t? But shouldn’t we strive to raise our standards? Is that it? I’m sure every one can perform better, can enhance their skills, have a better marriage, better job or income. The list is endless…a better character, better mother, wife, etc..
For those who truly believe in God, “Not so bad“ is out of the equation!…Why? Because He is great and mighty and that’s how my life has to be!..Great!… obviously in all aspects of life!..
New International Version (NIV)
11 For the LORD God is a sun and shield;
the LORD bestows favor and honor;
no good thing does he withhold
from those whose walk is blameless.
