We eat the way we like.We drink the way we like.We sleep the way we like.But sometimes,our idea of satisfaction does not coincide with that of others.If etiquette gets in the way of what we find fulfilling,then maybe it’s not worth the hype.
Making others follow a random rule is much more easier than making them follow a random person.Etiquette is build to bring similarity and cohesiveness in a group because we sometimes don’t know how to act at some point in time.And having a set of rules to follow does ease the way,but it is at the cost of our own individuality.
Instead of adapting to the rules of some long-gone person which we don’t even remember (or know for the fact if we got their name right),why don’t we just adapt to the ways of each other and break the cycle of discrimination? The purpose of using a chopstick is same as using knife & fork which is same as using a spoon and which is same as using hands.Hence,the only way to break through the cycle discrimination is to at least accept the differences even if you don’t want to adopt them.
You are lonely only when you feel lonely.
Nobody’s interested in knowing how happy you are.
The only thing that concerns the world is your status and salary.
It’s no wonder why we are in such a mess right now.
My father tells me – People are sad in others’ happiness and happy in others’ sadness.
If you can use words and numbers to showoff your success,then why can’t you use words and numbers to downplay your failure?
It is blaming the people and circumstances that helps you to fend off the negativity before it overwhelms you.
Does it solve your problems? No.
Does it keep you sane thinking the world is insane? Yes.
You will solve all your problems eventually as long as you stay the course.
Even if you can’t,you will leave them behind one day like everyone else does and taste wine in the heavens.
More than half of the problems that we face today were created by our ancestors – Be it the horrifying repercussions of the World War OR
Mars Climate Orbiter disappeared and later disintegrated on Mars because the ground-based computer software worked by the imperial system instead of the metric system.
We,the current generation,are the quickest way to solve such problems but not the only way (Yeah! Pass it on to the next generations).
So if you don’t want to solve any problems,don’t want to make your life easier,and if you’re okay with a blank slate with no stars,just blame it off.
If people judge you based on superficial things like your clothes,college degree or your color,they have too much free time in their life and too much free space in their brains.
Stay around people who not only accept you,but also respect the change you want to make.
If you can’t accept others’ choices then don’t expect them to accept yours.
A state is built when people come together to exchange their goods and services.
And a society is built when people not only stay together but respect each other regardless of their differences.
It’s better to let go of an opportunity than make a decision in haste because you can always create more opportunities for yourself but what you cannot do is undo the repercussions of your decision.Both paths will sometimes lead to regret,but the former will give you more time to critically think about your choice than the latter.
You can always construct your own future,but what you cannot do is change your past.Past is a burden that you will always carry with you and future is a plan that can be changed at your discretion,giving you more control.It is when people lose control they fall in despair.
In the end it is your choice to give your life away to something you didn’t truly believe in and hope for the best or have control over yourself no matter how hard times get and hope for the best.
