If we look around , you will see there is a lot of bad things happening . We live mostly by what the media feeds us because we have been brought to believe that what they show must be true . Our perception is most of the times based on one side of the story and on the angle projected by the broadcasting media. It should be noted that nowadays the more tragic , the better the sales because let’s face it , as humans we like to know that someone somewhere is having a worse day than we are and this somehow makes us feel good because we know that we are not the worse and we could be in a worse situation. But , without a doubt , this is a wrong perception because for us to feel good we definitely do not need to be comparing to others in order to feel better .
Have you realized that the more images of destruction you see, the more images of sufferings you are exposed to , the more of histories of hatred you hear , it gets you more sad and angry ? Well this is quite a normal phenomenon but in the long run it will wear you out if it hasn’t already . And what i am proposing is that you disconnect for some time at least and you reconnect with yourself . For sure we think that we need to know what is happening in the world but ask yourself why do you want to know so much ? Is it because you want to help , or is it because you don’t want to feel left out ? I am pretty sure it is because of our curiosity . Well i think that even your curiosity should have a limit and you should know your limits .
I challenge you to shut down all your social media, your tv , and radio or about a week and instead read a good book or go for walks and meet your friends and family or pure and simply spend time on your own. I can promise you the results will be astonishing , give it a try and get back at me . And in case you are wondering , yes i have have been there and done that. And i call it the return to my birth status , because the goal of this is to get back some of that innocence i lost , to care more but to care for what i can change and to stop letting negativity get to me , so i can spread more of positive vibes .
In my opinion love is one of the easiest feeling ever , or at least it should be , but looking around me it is not the case , Love is a feeling that flows naturally through us , it is not hard to love . Of course there are different types of love and different levels of loving but love is love , it’s a feeling-good factor , it’s ámazing and it surely make us feel good . Nonetheless , love has been causing trouble all around , it has become a destructive power , it is causing damage everywhere . How can such a beautiful feeling turn into such a miserable feeling , and more importantly when did this happen and why ? I dont have the answers to that sorry but i wanted to bring the attention to that . I think once we have been in love we know what i am talking about and if someone has ever been in love he/she will know that you cannot fall out of love . Look , if you are loving without accepting anything in return then you cannot unlove , but you can fall in love with someone else , in a different way . Moreover i think that if we are in love and that the love is not mutual , that doesn’t mean that we should stop loving , for once we have taught the heart to stop loving , well the brain will simply lock on that in order to prevent future heart break . For the sake of the feeling , for the sake of feeling good and for the sake of being human , embrace love and spread the feeling….
Let it flow….
One of the first things that started getting my attention is the realization that unhappiness and boredom is striking a lot of people and that including myself . At some point in my life i was very motivated and highly interested in becoming successful as it is being described in the world of today . However , i realized that the more i was chasing success the unhappier i get . i used to smile a lot , jokes , take it easy and be pretty much laid back but all of those things have disappeared and that without even realizing it. It has not been a matter of hours or days but it has been over months or even years . I was just too busy focusing on chasing success that i forgot to care about my well-being , my inner peace and my happiness. As a result, it ended in me becoming a totally different person to the point where i do no even recognize myself. I was irritated all the time, always worrying and being under constant stress and even the things i used to like were not giving me any pleasures as such , in other words i was depressed and i did not even realize it. From there i started asking questions about what is the purpose of my life and what it meant to me ,also what i am going to do about it . Those made me re-evaluate everything i was doing and start to make changes and fortunately , i found that my love for writing was still there and i started writing random thoughts in notebooks and on every little piece of paper i could find . Eventually , that helped me to express how i was feeling and get rid of all those frustrations which had been built up over the years. Of course its a long process and its still ongoing but i am determined to let it all out and set a new path for my life and also i think that i am not alone , so i will be writing here and hoping to meet people who are going through the same struggle ,so we can maybe share ideas and thoughts .
So if you are captured by this , please leave a comment , i will be writing other stuffs later…as i feel like because i normally just go with the flow . I don’t have a particular time to write but instead i write whenever i feel like.
