Many times in life, we feel defeated and at loss, many times we feel like giving up and quitting the competition, and simply being laid back about everything, and in worst case scenarios, suicidal tendencies also occupy your mind. If you’ve felt anything at all from the above mentioned symptoms, this post is for you!
“Life is a race, if you don’t run fast, you’ll be a ‘Broken-Andaa’..” – said Honorable Prof. ‘Virus’ from 3 Idiots!
The man was ‘not’ wrong, as actually, life is pretty fast! Nobody is helping or generous in today’s generation, everyone just wants his/her own success ‘before’ someone else’s. Jealousy has penetrated deeply in minds of people, and some are so typical that they view every individual as a ‘competitor’.
The fault is not their’s, but of their parents and family, who pressurized them from the day they were born, to do something ‘extra–ordinary‘, but ironically, in ‘academics‘ only. Here’s the undertone, they expect extra-ordinary talent from their kids, only in studies, any other activity is treated as a sin, and so, the child is forced into a particular school and then college, against his/her wish and when s/he fails, then parents blame the mobile phone, computer, facebook, and what not!
You need to understand one thing, that you are ‘not‘ alone! There’s an enormous amount of population, who is struggling to even live your life. Before committing suicide, or ending your life, you should be proud that you can afford a proper meal, you don’t sleep on streets and above all, you can ‘read’ this!
Lastly, the most important and useless (at the same time) problem is ‘people‘.
‘What will people think?’ – is the most common question of our life, that stops us from doing something miraculous or great, and it’s the biggest hurdle sometimes. People ‘will’ speak no matter what you do! You save someone’s life, or you kill someone, there will be people, who will speak good and bad about you, but it’s your choice, whose thoughts you allow to affect your own decisions and life!
“Listen to everyone, but in the end, do whatever you were gonna do anyways!” – Robert Downey Jr.
People are never a problem, unless we make them one! We start over-thinking, and we stop ourselves, and end up regretting for the things which we once dreamed of doing, but never did, coz of an underlying fear that screamed in our inner voice: ‘What will people think?’
The most successful people of the world, never even gave a thought to this question, that what will people think? They just stick to their opinion of right and wrong, and discovered the impossible. Galileo was barred from Church as he was the first one to state, that it’s the Earth that revolves, and the Sun is stationary. Had he thought about keeping his research to himself, he would never have become a renowned personality!
So, never underestimate yourself, and always believe in what you think, and what you do! Every person is born with a sense of right and wrong, what may seem wrong to you, maybe right in someone else’s view, but you don’t need to convince anyone. Life, in the end, is about being satisfied, after all, nobody wants to go to his/her grave with ‘regrets‘ and ‘remorse‘…
