How often do we love cocooning up in our little protective shell hiding from reality and things that we know, we eventually have to face?
How often do we succumb to temporary happiness, living in the moment as they say, knowing that eventually it’s gonna come to an end. And how often do we even sit down to think about it and not have fleeting thoughts every now and then?
People are too scared of a change. So much that sometimes they tend to seek happiness from that redundancy that’s causing them unhappiness
Life can be pretty simple, peaceful, days can pass in a blur with not much to worry about, not much to hate people for, smiles come much more freely and easily and yet we live in a world where stress, restlessness, anxiety, competition, hatred etc etc is our daily dosage. And the worst part is how we have accepted this as a normalcy in our lives.
Once you stop fighting it and accept things as they come by, life gets much more simpler .
But at what cost? A nagging sense of failure and a lifetime of dejection?
Is it worth it?
In the midst of an eternal chaos,
distant voices and blurry faces,
tormenting past and a dubious future,
it just never ends.
IT’S MONEY,ISN’T IT?
There’s this tradition or make belief of well wishing cards that one gets at holy shrines in Japan , 500 yen for good luck in exams, 1500 yen for good jobs, 3000 yen for prosperity and good health. At the end of the day, it’s the money, isn’t it which does the job?
HOW WELL DO YOU KNOW PEOPLE?
How often do we dismiss someone as happy by seeing a vague smile on their face or judge them to be lonely and sad because of their lack of enthusiasm in so called social obligations?
Isn’t it scary to just think what’s going on in a person’s mind behind all that facade that they put on? Isn’t it scary to think how different they could be from what you know of them.
We always believe that we could be in a better place than where we are right now.
But should it be the cause for constant dissatisfaction?
The best moments in our lives today begin with capturing them on our devices and posting them on social media for the world to see, because if the world hasn’t seen you live the moment, you haven’t actually lived it, right?
It’s no more about seeing things with our own eyes but through our gadgets. Is it the same thing though?
This world has too many people. Too many stories. A face in the crowd that we cross paths with, exchange a quick glance for a fraction of a second and think of it never again.
Remember when you were in 12th grade and you wanted it to end? You thought college life would be better, easier. Remember when you were in first year of college? You thought second year would be better. There was this one morning when I woke up and I hated things, so I thought, life after college would be better.
The thing is, it’s not going to get easier than this.So maybe it’s time that we stop deluding ourselves into believing that if we push through this moment, we can escape it forever.
