It’s fine to be selfish once in a while. Right?
The question here is how selfish are you allowed to be?
In a society which values maintaining relationships over focusing on individual self, we are often made to feel guilty when we start thinking about ourselves. “Emotional Atyachar(torture)”, as its often joked about as, is a soft, cushy weapon with a long lasting effect on our decisions. But till what level is it acceptable to think about others before you think about yourself, To live for your family and friend’s contentment. Not at the cost of over shadowing your own needs.
It is important to be assertive. You need to be practical headed. But success in career is best when complimented with success in relationships and to maintain a balance between the two is not an easy task at all. Strive to excel but am sure you don’t want to be alone at the top. You need people to raise your toast with. To celebrate!
Each of us, as individuals have our own wishes, demands, hopes and dreams to fulfill. But if all of us start thinking only about ourselves, then the world will become a difficult place to live in. Life is about little compromises here and there. If you expect others to be there for you at your low times, you ought to try and be there at their needy times.
You have to think who are worth your effort and time. Family? Friends? Girl friend/ Boy friend? You, yourself? After all everything is working on a stop watch, so you gotta act quick. Your time on earth is limited.
This four letter word called fate is defined as a power or agency that predetermines and orders the course of events. Events, as they are ordered or “inevitable” and unavoidable.
Well, some of you might dismiss the very idea nonchalantly as being frivolous. You get what you work for. Right? But what about the people you meet, the connections you built. That little voice of instinct inside each of us which guides our actions when we just have nano seconds to spare!
Destiny, like god, ancient history, future predictions, is just a belief which some support with facts. It could be an excuse for someone looking back, failing to reason out those unexplainable events of their life.
So it does not matter if you believe in destiny or not! Because at some point in each one of our lives, we find ourselves living up random moments with once random people and we can’t reason exactly how and why we are where we are. Some decisions are made beyond us. Some we make. But we too make them in accordance to the universe and the universe has its own ball games.
