A Question for You (Yes, YOU)

To whoever reads this, you must give an answer to my question down below in the comments. This is meant for anyone who comes across this article.

Here is my question: If, by some miracle, each and every person in the entire world has been stripped off of whatever bothers them, whatever makes them sad, every single feeling that causes them pain has been taken away from them, leaving them happy and grief-free, every person except you, would you feel happy for them or sad for yourself??

Think about it and be honest when you let me know your answer. We are humans. We can’t always act selflessly. The courage lies in bravely accepting what you feel and not being afraid to express it. I, for one, am sure I will happy to see my friends and family so happy, but there would be this hollow ache too that would make me feel envious of them.

Waiting for your replies…

  1. I would definitely feel sad for myself! Ofcourse, a joy shared is a joy doubled. When thereโ€™s joy everywhere, it is quite contagious and you catch it too. But if youโ€™re the only one in the world deprived of it, it is quite normal to feel bad for yourself. Thatโ€™s what evolution has done to us!

    1. Umm I liked your truthful answer but I guess we’re not deprived of the joy here we’re getting both joy and grief but others are deprived of grief and so they can only be happy all the time but our happiness will depend on how we see our life.right?

  2. I would first obviously feel sad for myself but then I may accept the fact that I’m unique anyways as I’m the only person getting the right to experience each tupe of emotion which others aren’t getting! I k I will accept it and some where I’ll be able to find the positive side๐Ÿค”but as human nature I will obviously feel sad fir myself but also happy fir atleast my loved ones.

  3. would feel happy but envious cus everyone are happy and well apart from the fact of feeling bad for oneself it would be an equally bad feeling that we can help no one.
    How will we cultivate relationships if everyone are truly happy?
    how will we make best bonds out of common if in the whole world one can’t do anything for others…
    willl we do anything speciall…
    maybe not….

  4. Ok, I’m selfish. So obviously….I would wonder why me..why only me? I would really try to be happy for everyone else. But how can I be happy for them when I’m not even having a happy life?

        Ok then, here goes ๐Ÿ˜Ž:

  6. They would be like robots. Happy robots. Happy 24/7 with nothing to make them cry or sad. So, basically, they would be smiling and cheerful all the time. Yeah, that’s not creepy at all. I would run away.

    To answer your actual question, I would only feel bad for myself when I am feeling down. Otherwise, I would be happy. (:

    1. Actually, this does make a lot of sense! Now that you mention it, they might be super creepy indeed ๐Ÿ˜‚.
      But like, we’ve only taken away their grief, they’re not happy all the time, they are just free of sadness and pain…if that makes sense.

      1. Ohh! Sorry, I guess I misunderstood that bit… whoops.
        Well, then… I believe if they don’t feel pain, they wouldn’t be strong like I would be.

        And I agree with what Aayushi Agrawal said. ‘Without sadness, happiness becomes worthless.’
        No one would understand the value of it. My final answer is that I would be happy for myself. Because I would be able to understand what true happiness is…
        Sorry for the misunderstanding, mate. =P

      2. Hey no, you didn’t misunderstand. Technically, I’m the one who created the confusion by using the word ‘happy’ in my post….ugh, my brain irritates me sometimes ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ˜ณ.
        And I love your answer!! Thanks so much!

  7. I would at times be really jealous of people for the fact that they only have joy in their lives and I would envy them a lot. But mostly I would be happy that I can experience grief and can understand the value of joy in one’s life so that I don’t take any joyful moment for granted. So overall I would be happy for the majority of my lifetime. ๐Ÿ˜„

  8. Dude, we cherish the happiness only after we have yearned for it, only after a period of darkness comes a bright light which is adorable!! Without sadness, happiness becomes worthless. Without difficulties, the life becomes indifferent. No adventure! Nothing and most importantly we would lose our passion to succeed and learning from failures as there wouldn’t be any!!
    I would be happy with this life only where you fall, get a chance to improve and then rise, and that rise earned from our hardwork gives the satisfaction and contentment beyond anything!.. Yet I would be happy for others and happy people around, make us happy always!! The happy surrounding, the positive vibes around gain the happy we!!!๐Ÿ˜‡

    P.s.- Sorry, if it was too long๐Ÿ˜… but I just wrote it without thinking of the anything else!!

    1. Hey no, we all love long comments, don’t worry about it! It’s awesome. Your comment is actually enough to change my own opinion about this topic. I did always believe that life is so much more interesting with difficulties, I don’t know my brain skipped through that part while writing this ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜. You’re right! I would indeed feel happy to cherish every moment ๐Ÿ˜. Thanks for commenting!!

  9. I would feel happy for my friends and family. But I would contemplate murder of my enemies since they’re happy (I swear I’m not a psychopath). Of course, I would be kinda sad at first, but I think over time other’s joy will rub off on me.

  10. I’ll be happy but still a little place in my heart will be sad. But ig those happy people’s life is gonna be boring like no adventures and nothung ti deal with , nothing just happiness so at from that point of view I’ll be happy for myself, happy with what I have.
    And yeah like others I’ll like to kill ppl who are tired with their so called all time happy life

    1. The generation these days is getting more and more murderous ๐Ÿคฃ.
      Also I think I’ll feel the same way too. Life would be fun…but it’ll be a little weird but we’ll deal with that.

  11. No way I’m gonna be happy for others. But I’m not gonna be sad either. I guess I’ll try to make myself feel better. When we’re stripped away of our problems, we’ll take life for granted. So I’d feel happy that I live normally like any human would!

  12. How do you even come up with these scenarios, Nehal? ๐Ÿ˜‚ I would feel happy for everyone else, but also kind of sad for myself. I mean, I think it’d be awesome if there was as much happiness as possible in the world, so I’d definitely rather everyone except me had the perfect life than having things be the way they are now, but still… I’d feel really lonely if I was the only one who somehow couldn’t join in, and I’m sure there’d be a big lump in my throat.

    1. I have absolutely no idea. I actually wrote this post last year, when I was very new to blogging. ๐Ÿ˜‚
      And yeah, I said the same thing too! I would feel really happy for them but at times, it’ll be hard. Thanks for commenting, Naemi!

  13. But…if I understood your question it is that everyone else will be rid of all things that bother them so they will be happy for the rest of their lives (I assume they wont experience other emotions) and I will not be rid of the things that bother me so I will have the freedom of my emotions….
    Well actually, I don’t think I will be feeling sorry for myself. And I won’t be happy for them. At least I will have a variety of emotions. Being happy for too long will probably turn boring.
    I admit it will take away the fun of life because if people will only be happy when i am angry at them it wont make any difference.
    BUT WAIT A SECOND…
    .
    .
    If I bother people does that mean I will be rid of?Because i sometimes tend to exasperate certain people?
    Eeeeeeee*runs*
    I need to calm down. It isnt happening right now.
    ….*breathes*

    1. Okay, I think you took it a little too deep ๐Ÿ˜‚.
      Your response sounds great! It would indeed be cool to get to experience a variety of emotions. ๐Ÿ˜
      Also sorry for the late response, I wasn’t in town.
