Buddhism Day by Day: Daily Life Can Seem Drab & Unexciting
“Daily life can seem all too drab and unexciting. Living itself can sometimes see a strain, and few of us realistically expect what joy we feel to last forever. But when we fall in love, life seems filled with drama and excitement. We feel the like a leading character in a novel. But, if you get lost in love just because you are bored, and consequently veer from the path you should be followed, then love is nothing more than escapism.”
