Hi everybody !
I hope we are in good condition and can quickly resolve the problems that exist in our lives.
Speaking of problems this time I will cover a song by a beautiful singer from Australia.
Lenka entitled trouble is my friend.
The song Trouble is a friend is one of the most popular songs. This song is an affirmation of human essence. That in fact no one in this world is free from problems. Never in human history has anyone lived a life that was completely smooth. There's always a problem. And, the problem does not recognize any labels attached to names that are often used as differentiators.
Maybe at first glance, the lyrics of this song seem a bit strange. How there are people who treat problems as friends, friends, or belongings that are part of themselves. Lenka talked about the meaning of the problem in a way that wasn't gloomy. It does not frighten us when it says,
'He's there in the dark'
'He's there in my heart'
'He waits in the wings'
'He's gotta play a part'
Problems are always there. It's in the dark, as close as the body to me or even in the heart. Lenka talks about the ontology of the problem. Problems can arise from complicated situations, which are symbolized by dark. Problems can also come from within the person himself. From the heart, said Lenka. Or, the problem can arise from the people closest to us. Close people, as close as the body to the wings. However, the lyrics to Trouble is a friend don't have to make us heterophobic or xenophobic. Perceiving something unusual or someone else different from us as a problem to be avoided. We just need to be a little wiser in overcoming a problem, namely by familiarizing it.
Lenka talks about the meaning of a problem so that we know the meaning of happiness. Sometimes, humans often dissolve in a happy mood. Forget that there is always a different atmosphere lurking. Problems always play a role, which may never be seen if we can't draw meaning from the problem. The atmosphere of a happy atmosphere often makes us unprepared when suddenly a problem is present in front of us. Therefore, Lenka reminded that there is no need to be surprised when problems occur.
Fear or anxiety about problems is because we are not ready. Assuming that the problem is something outside of humans, which must be avoided by looking for other better ways. It doesn't have to be that way. I remember a saying gaudet tentamine virtu, in trials, virtue keeps people happy. Maybe this is what Lenka stands for in her song?
