Wound

When you hold in your tears it hurts.The pain hurts you from within while testing your limits.When you let go you feel relieved.There is no meaning in holding on to your suffering.Crying is not only for the weak.Those who choose to cry,choose to live with no agony.And I don’t see a more smarter choice than letting go of pain.Isn’t that something we all strive for in the end?

Fortitude

When we help children or old people too much – not only they become more dependent on us but also less empowered from within.

They are not incapable – they’re just either less informed or slow due to aging.

Our way of communication also impacts them – instead of saying ‘I will do it’,we say ‘you can’t do this so let me’.

Help them only when they ask for it – strike a balance between being overbearing and being ignorant.

Do not control – just empower.

Exception

Everything in life is a test of your resilience – peer pressure,antagonism,exam stress,job interview,societal standards and what not.Whatever you choose to do will be graded based on a system.When you fail in life,you fail at the system.At that point you must remind yourself that – the system isn’t you.The system doesn’t define you.In fact,it can’t define you because you,me and us define the system itself.

A system exists to create coordination.It is not a metric of success and failure.Whereas a system can be replaced according to the need of the people and time,a person can only be created once and never again.
