Life is the most amazing thing that we are bestowed upon. Probably you have parents who put you down, children who doesn’t show any respect, siblings who do not support you, no partner who can appreciate you, no job, no friends. But still life itself is beautiful! Life does not need any of those to be beautiful. No outsiders, no situation defines life. As long as you are alive and you are alert enough to know that you are alive, there is tremendous possibility. As long as there is a biting heart and working brain there is hope for amazing things.
Loved Ones Are Not Our Possessions
Nobody should not be able to decide the value of my life. Relationships are one aspect of life, they are not the primary placeholder of life. I have a friend who has an autistic child. I heard her saying that her life is ruined. Children are important. But do they define your life? Your child is the gift of nature to you. As long as, it is not ready to take charge of its own life, you need to be there for it. If the child is an autistic child, it will demand more attention. You cannot think that your life is ruined because your child is autistic or because your child will meet a different destination than the one you might want. Most of us think that our closed and loved ones are our possessions. Most of the problems start there. Parents think children should live their ideologies, children expect parents to behave the way they want. We always forget, everybody says or does what they know and what they have learned from their lives, surroundings and experiences. Even twin sisters may have different perspective about everything. Because nowadays, we do not gather experiences from our family or school only. The whole world’s information is open to us.
Everybody is a separate existence
Moreover, each individual is a different existence, separate life itself. If we can just stop thinking that people around us are our possessions and they somehow own our life and they have the authority to make our life good or bad, half of the things that come across to us as problems today, will not seem to be as problems tomorrow. That does not mean we should not care about other people. We definitely should but accepting the fact that we cannot control other people’s life, the way our own life should not be controlled by others.
Life for Life
All the talks above may seem like, I am anti relationships. No. I believe, whenever life feels really hard, coming in contact with other life may make things better. It could be spending time with other people who believes that life is beautiful, who love and care for you, at the same time do not control you. There is nothing that can be compared with some good relationships. Human life is designed to live with other lives. That’s why we build families, communities and societies. But in modern society, as much as we make lots of friends in social media, we do not have too many meaningful relationships in life. I cannot pretend to be an expert on building relationships. But spending time in places, where life is vibrating will elevate the overall spirit of life for sure. Other lives do not have to be other humans. It could be plants, fish or animals. Therefore, visiting an aquarium, a garden or just nearby park can lift people’s spirit up and instill positive energy.
Overall, the point is the current position or situation may not seem to work for an individual the way s/he might like it but that does not make life any less beautiful. All you need to do is to prepare yourself to see the beauty of it.
