The only way to grow is to understand and accept change is common. If you refuse that then you’ll only be taking away your learning opportunities.
Your flaws are like traps in your journey of life. If you tackle them head on you’ll get stuck, at times wounded. But if you plan carefully their discovery and destruction, you’ll be able to fill the gaps those traps leave behind with your determination.
Either you can let stress beat you, or better, feed you.
What is the best way to grow? With support or without?
When we have support, we put less strain into doing things. We don’t look over our shoulder waiting for obstacles to hit us. We don’t stay on guard because we don’t need to. We know we will be provided by our support
When we don’t have support, we persevere to get ourselves out of chaos. We take leaps and revolutionise the way other think. Though we put our basic survival at risk, we try to keep alive hope to gain better.
Surrounded by reinforced walls, we fail to even think about the cracks, less repair them.
When our world is crumbling we try to gather every last piece. That desperation either becomes despair or a motivation to keep looking for change.
It’s more nurturing for people when they are surrounded by people who have different opinions.
A few setbacks prepare you to make a long jump forward.
One can always use cheap tricks to drag others down and make themselves look superior.But what good will that do? You will betray your own chance of being excellent by eliminating fierce competition and advancement towards growth.
Parenting is not about shaping the child.It is more about creating an environment in which the child shapes itself.
So you don’t get to choose what the child should do or shouldn’t do.You just lay down the ground rules and let the child decide the path it wants to take.
You can teach your child what’s good or bad,what’s desirable or undesirable,what’s right or wrong BUT don’t tell them that this is an absolute reality in which they have to live.
True freedom just doesn’t come from the right to choose.One should also have the knowledge about their choices because then only they can think as a person in their own right and choose the path they want to follow.
This may sound like it’s only possible for the privileged but not really.Living in an environment deprived of choices is a downside but it allows one to create opportunities for oneself.It’s a refreshing experience in itself.
When you can afford things,you get to choose.When you can’t afford something you get the opportunity to create.People don’t create inventions because they don’t need them.They create them because they feel their lives are lacking something and add meaning to it.
Not having something is not necessarily a disadvantage.It is an opportunity to create something with your own hands.On the other hand,having almost everything gives us an opportunity to explore more and learn to create.
Don’t compare yourself to the people in the past.They are way back in time and our job is to walk forward.And only way we can do that is when we try new ideas.Repeating and following the old ones will just bring us up to the present,not take us into the future.
With time our physical well being has improved but what about our mental health being?
How can we judge which one is more important to take care of now?
I just have one thing to say: You can take a pill to alleviate physical pain but there exists no pill that gives meaning to your life.
Physical health has become easier to take care of now.So yes,pay attention more to your mental health because it needs your constant love and care.
In the end it is for the individual to decide in what way they want to be happy physically,psychologically or both.
