“Pain demands to be felt. Anger rises and never melts. The times you have to pretend to be okay, but only you know the pains that you keep within you. Wear the game face and keep your head high.”
Contentment, delight, gratification, these words have traveled a long way to our lives and then left us midway. Or have we left them? And now, these factors of life have been replaced with greed, jealousy, and revenge. Instead of being satisfied with what we have, we desire more.
The pleasure and the happiness have been overpowered by jealousy and revenge. We plan for a payback, but what if we accept reality, move on with it, and start believing that whatever happened is for the best. They say life is a great teacher. Surely, life educates us on what is right and what is wrong. But at times, we humans fail to make the right decisions and blame it all on our lives. And then we say, life is not fair at all.
We all face instances in life that may hurt us in drastic ways. These drastic instances present themselves to us in the form of clashes with our co-workers at office, misunderstandings with spouses, or a random comment by a classmate in school for that matter.
We have seen how these little things affect people and lead them to depression.
Instead of just sitting and cribbing over it, show them how well you can excel in your work and get promoted, discuss your problems with your spouse, and try to sort out the issues. And well, about that random comment? People talk, whether you do them good or bad. Suppose you achieve success, jealousy talks. If you fail, sympathy speaks.
People will always have something to say about your weight; if it bothers you so much, then go for a walk or exercise and get into shape, and if you’re too lazy to do that, then the greatest thing you can do about this is “just ignore.”Do not let your ‘over-thinking’ complicate your life more than it already is.
Life is actually pretty simple; the sad truth is, we complicate it. When you say, you get negative vibes from someone, is it actually the person who forces it onto you, or do you yourself begin to believe it? Do not form opinions about anyone without properly knowing them; always look for positive factors in everyone; things would be different and better.
There arrives a point in life when your conviction begins to fall apart. At this point, you begin to believe that everybody’s going to cause pain to you sooner or later. This empty-headed policy of ours is what we need to bring a change in. The problem is not the problem, but the problem is your attitude towards the problem and how well you deal with it.
Nobody’s life is perfect. Every other person we meet has problems. But eventually everything gets better, and if it doesn’t, it’s not the end. If you genuinely try from the bottom of your heart, nobody can stop you from achieving things that you truly set your heart upon. It is just you who can make it or break it.
“Where there is a will, there is a way,”
If you do not find a way, you should make one. You get an opportunity; grab it. Remember, life doesn’t give second chances to everyone. We all make mistakes, but the thing that is required after that is rectification. Observe and verify what took you there, where you should not have landed up.
Give yourself some time. Believe in yourself. Be kind and be grateful for your existence. You have got one life; make the most of it.
