Meaning

Only the society and you can attach meaning to your life.

Society is a place where you have to pay your share to live,so it’s obvious that society will judge.

What about you? How do you define yourself? Is it okay to love yourself even if you do bad things?

When the society outcasts you,what meaning you attach to yourself becomes the only purpose of your life.

Comparison

Best way to stay happy: never compare yourself to others.Only compare yourself to you.

My past self is a sucker compared to my present self.That makes me happy.

My future self? I don’t know! Never met her! Can’t compare yourself to someone you can’t find.(But I bet the future one’s doing better!)

My Plan

When people look towards you and expect you to follow the norm,don’t look back at them.

Just look towards a future in which you tried to be different from the rest with no regrets.

It won’t guarantee that you’ll win or lose but certainly it will let you experience playing by one’s own rules.It’s your life and you have the biggest stake in it so live it the way you want.

Foundation

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.

Reasonable

People do things for a reason.As long as they don’t harm others or self that reason is valid.

When you harm someone to get what you want you abandon your humanity (which is not great thing to do as a human is it?).We are not animals,or rather we are not primitive.We have higher order thinking,just use it and you don’t need to harm anyone.

When it comes to harming oneself that’s a bit trickier to breakdown.Many people believe that life is sacred.And that totally makes sense because life is so unique in our world,in our universe.But doesn’t a sacred life deserves the right dignity? Harming oneself without having control on oneself is a call for help and we should help.But making a decision to take away your life after trying everything out is different.A person who has tried everything they could and still not feel like they should live,should be let go.Death doesn’t have to bad it is just a choice.Whether or not that choice is regretted is a consequence for that person to bear.We can only hope to do our best to help them as long as we can.But I guess if we try our best nobody needs to go away in the end.There’s always a way out,no matter how unlikely the possibility.
