Dependency and Suffering

Main reason of suffering is your Dependency, be it Physical, Emotional, Financial, Work or any other social dependency. The moment you start treating yourself like an individual and detach yourself there wont be any more suffering. You will be the Most happiest person on this earth.

Though saying is always easy than actual doing as we are bound by our family (Brothers / Sisters / Parents etc), social (Friends ..etc) and Work related (Employer / Employees / Collegues ..etc) people.

From my yest. experience i realized that People are angry when their expectations are not met. Your anger leads to frustration, you start feeling helpless and thus start suffering.

Expectations are nothing more than depending on someone else. So if we dont depend on others than most of our sufferings will end.

Nice post!! though I am not quite sure i agree with you fully.
You make perfect sense in most parts,where I can't seem to nod in agreement is 'dependency' part.. yes, its risky, its makes you vulnerable but it also makes living an experience and not a burden.

We are hurt, we are disappointed, we suffer not always because we depended on someone and they let us down.. but because, somewhere we just couldnt strike a balance.

Life is all about 'striking that balance'.. won't you agree?!

@Manisha - Correct me, if i'm wrong - when you say "Strike a Balance", you mean setting your "Expectations" according to the "Capabilities" of others, right?
