Welcome to Day 950 of our Wisdom-Trek, and thank you for joining me.
This is Guthrie Chamberlain, Your Guide to Wisdom
A Friend’s Success – Wisdom Unplugged
Thank you for joining us for our five days per week wisdom and legacy building podcast. This is Day 950 of our trek, and it is time for a 3-minute mini-trek called Wisdom Unplugged. Thank you for joining me on this trek called life. This short nugget of wisdom includes an inspirational quote with a little bit of additional content for today’s trek. Consider this your vitamin supplement of wisdom for today. So let’s jump right in with today’s nugget:
Today’s quote is from Oscar Wilde, and it is, “Anybody can sympathize with the sufferings of a friend, but it requires a very fine nature to sympathize with a friend’s successes.”
A Friend’s Success
Most of us do sympathize with a friend as they go through struggles and pain because we do not like to see them suffer. We may even be able to empathize with a suffering friend if we have gone through something similar. A mature person, though, will sympathize with a friend who is successful and do so without jealousy and envy.
We should be able to do both. Too often we start despising friends who are successful, especially if we are not successful ourselves. Let us rejoice with those who receive the good things of life in the same way that we console those who suffer.
Romans 12:15-16 – Be happy with those who are happy, and weep with those who weep. Live in harmony with each other. Don’t be too proud to enjoy the company of ordinary people. And don’t think you know it all!That’s a wrap for today’s Wisdom Unplugged quote. If you would like free access to my database of over 10,000 inspirational quotes, the link is available on the main page of Wisdom-Trek.com.
