Why Can’t We Keep Things Simple?

Life is actually very simple but it is us, the human beings who have a tendency to unnecessarily complicate things. Have any of us ever given this absolute truth a serious thought?

Why do we have to make life so difficult?

Why do we have to throw attitude at every juncture?

Why do we have to put pride ahead of everything else?

Why do we have to show off on any given occasion?

Why can’t we just smile when we meet someone?

Why is it so difficult for us to display our human side?

Why don’t we even try to live life in a simple manner?

Life is too short. If we can find answers to the above questions, or at least make an honest attempt to do so, it will definitely make our life a lot easier (and happier).
