More reasons to be happy!

Philosophy

You feel as if you want to give up on everything. You are unable to see a brighter future or appreciate what you already have. When you’re in a terrible mood, your brain shuts down, and you can’t ignore what others say about you, or you lose hope and believe you’ll never be able to achieve your goals. Let’s take a step back and recognize that perhaps the interpretation of yourself you’re condemning, is someone’s version of you. You’re attempting to acquire what others believe is appropriate for you!

You’ve created your life’s screenplay in your imagination. Is it, however, consistent with your core beliefs? Most probably no. You wrote the script, but it was designed by the people around you. After all, the script doesn’t even matter, right? (because life is not a movie). We are a flexible species, and the individuals we associate ourselves with, will shape our personalities. Your views and actions would be different if you were born in a different era or dealt with unusual people. (You might have been an Egyptian emperor or a palace cleaner, or anything else). But that doesn’t mean we should give up all hope, time has a greater impact on life than everything else together.

Just take a moment with your earphones and listen to this masterpiece by M83.

Lyrics

We didn’t need a story, we didn’t need a real world
We just had to keep walking
And we became the stories, we became the places
We were the lights, the deserts, the faraway worlds
We were you before you even existed
Carry on, carry on, carry on
And after us the flood
Carry on, carry on, carry on
Our silver horn it leads the way
Banners of gold shine
In the cold, in the cold, in the cold
Footprints of snow, blind from the road
Hail!
We carry on, carry on
Follow us, we are one
The battle’s fought, the deed is done
Our silver hum runs deep and strong
Hand to the heart, lips to the horn
We can save, we can be reborn
Head on my breast, I’ll keep you warm
Hail!

To be truly satisfied, we must disregard the rules that others follow. If you fail, you must seek other options. Look around and consider all the possibilities that this life has given upon you.

Let’s see how this goes: Take a piece of paper and a pen. Make a list of 10 things (large or small) that make your life meaningful. Strike through all of them and pretend you’ve lost them. Now, can you write another ten? Yes, I am confident that you will not run out of options. You are fortunate enough to be able to read and understand this article, as well as wishfully write down thoughts. Entire countries have rebuilt and prospered as if nothing had happened after terrible wars. I have faith in you. Good Luck!

Please share this with someone you care about.
