A Good Man – Chapter 37 – JohnA Passaro


The harder the conflict,
The more glorious the triumph.
What we obtain too cheap,
We esteem too lightly.
It is dearness only
That gives everything its value.

Thomas Paine


There is a sweet spot in becoming a member of the “Life Changing Events Club.”

There has to be just the right amount of pain and hurt caused by the event in your life that introduces you to the club.

“Too little” pain and hurt, where one forgets and reverts back to their original life without gaining proper perspective to fully appreciate life is pointless.

“Too harsh” pain and hurt, where one’s will is broken, will destroy one’s outlook on life and make that person useless.

It has to be just enough pain and suffering that makes one change their perspective on life while still being able to move forward and live, unwilling to ever let go of the pain and suffering, realizing how important it is to one’s perspective.

That is just the right amount.

Pain and suffering when channeled become perspective.

Perspective leads to gratitude.

And gratitude is what helps the world become a better place.

I hope beyond hope that Bill receives just the right amount of pain and suffering for his actions, so he has a permanent perspective on life.

Which will give him permanent gratitude as well.

For he is a good man – who still has a lot of good to give to this world.

A world that so badly needs it.
