Understanding Why You Were Born

Have you considered that the world might have been a better place if someone else was born in your place?

For example, many of us come from homes that are not exactly perfect. Assuming each of your parents had married someone with whom they were more compatible, you would never have been born, your parents would have had a happier marriage, and the world might have been a better place. In other words, you will not exist in this hypothetically happier world.

Not a very savory thought—i know. Emotions aside, however, this is a perfectly legitimate observation to make; so why did I feel guilty when I first started thinking about this subject? I’ll save that conversation for next time. For now, lets clear up the mess I’ve just created.

Based on my general observation, there are a lot of people that feel they should never have been born. For these people, life is an endurance trek with a couple of milestones along the way. Life looks something like this:

Just as I was resigning myself to the conclusion that there was no happy ending to my initial analysis, something snapped inside of me.

It was the kind of aha moment that we all live for! Listen! So maybe the world would have been happier if your parents had made better choices in selecting a spouse but that was not something you had control over. They have made their choices and the consequences are theirs to deal with.

Now this where it gets interesting.

Of the billions of babies that could have been born, the sperm that resulted in your birth was the fastest and most resilient. The egg that was released during ovulation was the fastest to mature (sorry if you’re a twin). You’ve been a phenomenal success story even before you were born! It makes my blood boil with excitement to know that out of all the possible combinations of misfits that could have been born, I am the best there could have been. You should see yourself in the same way. You triumphed from day one-in spite of everything else going on around you.

If not for anything else, this should make you stand a little taller, walk a little straighter, and remember this: given the odds, circumstances, and possibilities—you are the best there could have been. Until next time, stay motivated!

  1. That is how a very Good man like me feels right now since i Never found a Good woman to settle down with to have a family that i really wanted when so many Millions of other people have been very Blessed to find Love with one another and have a family. And i can really Blame the women out there since so many now have their Careers today which many of them are so very high maintenance, independent, selfish, spoiled, greedy, picky, narcissists, and so very money hungry too which really speaks for itself. Most women these days really do want the Best and will Never settle for Less which as you can clearly see how the women of today are Nothing at all like the Good old fashioned women were years ago that were so much different than now which is a real shame. And many friends of mine feel the same way since they’re Single too and Don’t want to be either. Many of us Good men out there now were just born at such a very bad time which it was just too bad that we weren’t born at a much Earlier Time which many of us Definitely would have been all settled down by now. Our family members were very Fortunate since finding love for them came so much Easier for them since many of them are still together today as i speak which it is very Amazing. Peace.
