Question

Guys keep long hair and wear earrings to look cool.But why does it look cool? Do they feel cool to look like a girl (because we associate longer hair and the obsession for jewelry with femininity)? Or do they feel cooler by breaking the social norms of the society to stand out?

Approaching

We all gamble at some point in our lives.Some of us relish the prizes won,and some of us regret the choices lost.And every conscious being has a tendency to avoid risk that comes at a great cost.So much so that evolution has fixated in us certain reflexes to unconsciously avoid hurtful things.

Ironically,today some of us are voluntarily diving head-straight into life threatening risks.What happened to our survival instincts? Years ago when life was more unstable, we tried to gather (or forcibly take away from others) lots of resources and pass it onto our next generation.Now,we don’t feel the same threat anymore,so we nurture other species as our own,or others of our species as our own,with no feelings of competitiveness or inconvenience.We even engage in high stimulating activities out of nostalgia of our ancestors who had to escape from a bear or something every other day.

So,it goes onto show us that as competition for resources or levels of life-threats go down,we feel more secure and tolerant of each other.Today we see and feel discrimination because deep down we feel insecure of things being taken away from us.Once innovation stands in and everyone is provided for,the word threat itself will cease to exist.

Excess

Ever seen an animal feasting? It will consume food till its belly is full and then walk away leaving the rest to the other animals.(It could go differently if they either buy a refrigerator or understand the concept of frozen food).

Ever seen a human feasting? It will consume food till its belly reach the rupture point and then walk away with packed leftovers.(It could go differently if either humans try to value the concept of moderation or share with those suffering from malnutrition and starvation).

Nurture

Education provides both academic and emotional growth.Academics is something that a person may or may not put to use in their lifetime.Whereas emotion is a curative feeling that tends to remain in the hearts and minds of people now and forever.

Outlook

When you read on your social media that you have got a hundred ‘friends’,you feel loved.

But when you read on your social media that you have got a hundred ‘followers’,you feel empowered.

Affliction

Some people crave relief only after they experience pain.They don’t ask for help until they reach their breaking point.Because either they are just too scared to face the unintended consequences that resistance brings,or they are just too brave to face it all alone out of love for someone.
