Opposite of life


Life is stranger than fiction. A fiction has to be convincing, life is under no such obligation. The greatest thing to me in the world are cynics amd skeptics, trust me, we are glad when we are proven wrong. We concern you and ourselves with the evils and the uglies to further glorify the importance of good.

Life is full of wonders, adventures and unchecked happiness having hope and faith is not something which is hopelessly romantic or foolish, it is rather a different perspective. A perspective that we all breed deep inside us ;even though we try to hide it in glooms, stress and disbelief. We often forget that our race and time is just more than an era of competition, insecurities, cruelty and greed it has even been the one of compassion, sacrifice , courage and inspiration irrespective of age, origin or circumstances.

You get better when you don’t even realize you are getting better. It is only when you sit on a bench and stare into distance to trace back your life you become aware that you have grown, progressed and been someone that you would have liked to be.

We’d be better off if we spent our time and resources to make ourselves of even more use than we already are. We’d be brave if we spent your life in making or taking someone else a step closer to their ambitions instead of pondering and fretting over things we’re powerless to control. Improve a few lives even if it must be in the simplest of ways.

As Elie Wiesel once said- The opposite of love is not hate, it’s indifference. The opposite of art is not ugliness, it’s indifference. And the opposite of life is not death, it’s indifference. 

Indifference is one of the most dangerous things in the world it makes you blind to the good, kind and the brave. It no longer matters that someone snatched your opportunity, rights, and chance to accomplish, simply because you choose to do nothing about it. You allow yourself to crumble into a nothing, in a vast world which alreday challenges you to insignificance. You refuse the challenge, you give up without trying , you fail to act even if it must be like a coward.

We all ought to have a ikinagi. A purpose for which we wake up every morning. Be it love, family or ambition.The amazing thing about life is sometimes when you fail to get what you desire you might be actually dodging a bullet.

Stop treating life akin to a loan, a liabilty you must repay by the burden of EMI is a sysytematic matter. Treat it like a author who writes a book ;apart from a few conventional rules there is nothing that binds you. You are a creator of your own story, and the tale is such that the world will be glad to know.

Stop existing start living. The world is not falling apart. It can’t until people like you and me exist, who believe that is our job to be good, who try to make a difference, who choose to act bravely in the face of fear and speak our heart and mind even if our opinion bothers others and does not necessarily attempt to be idealized.

Difficult roads often lead to beautiful destinations and no road can be more difficult than the life and the world itself.

  1. I agree with you when you said “You are a creator of your own story” but we have to understand everyone story is so different. Everyone need not be the same, everyone’s braveness or tolerance is different. What I call a beautiful life may not be your definition of beautiful life. I feel its ultimately your happiness finally counts. Yes life is stranger than fiction because we are different. We think differently. Our needs are so different.I think that’s the way it should be. If you observe this universe in micro level all our universe itself is so unique.. Yes I would like to sit back and see how far I have come, but not to curse myself..I would change, continuously, till the end. πŸ™‚

    1. Exactly! I agree with evry word you said beauty, success and accomplishmnets are subjective concepts which are psychological in nature. The society terms of success may not necessarile leave the satisfaction that it is supposed to. Success and happiness do not need to be tangible and everyone needs to make mistakes to learn how to make things rights. Perfection is what you want it to be.Perfection is not the absence of flaws but embracing it.Everyone seeks differnet goals and the point is one must always seek to achieve instead of not acting.Self actualization is a fundamental need to most of us.
