The purpose of life is
living it to the fullest, while it lasts. We seem to have lost this
understanding somewhere in the hustle of life. People plan extensively for
their academics, career, their life itself. It is only natural and of course
good to have a great plan in place. No offense with that at all.
However, the problem lies
when things do not go as planned. The resultant disappointment is sometimes
really very difficult to handle. The inability to prepare ourselves to handle
failures and manage our expectations makes matters worse for us.
In worst case scenarios,
people even commit suicide over petty things such as failure in exams,
relationships, financial problems etc. I have come across cases in the news
where people have ended their life as they could not get their desired mobile
phone. It is such a shame that people can end up taking such disastrous steps,
for such silly reasons.
The reason that such
incidents happen is because during that instance people are so consumed by the
desire that they cannot imagine the guilt nor were they prepared to handle the
fear of loss. These silly things unfortunately, do not at all matter to our
life in general. No reason can possibly justify these disastrous decisions no
Even in not so severe
cases, people suffer to manage the fear of things not going as planned, fear of
loss. The loss could be anything, a lost job, a failed relationship, going
bankrupt etc. In general, the fear of loss of anything gets so overwhelming
that it disables our ability to think beyond the cocoon that we unfortunately
spin around us.
Our ability to deal with
such situations depends solely on our inner strength that we nurture and our
thought process. A few pointers that can help build the same are as follows:
• The best thing in life aren’t things at all; realizing life
is much bigger than we can fathom.
• Life is not about doing big things perfectly, it is about
doing little things right; one thing at a time, rest will fall into place.
• Realizing Forgiveness is a superpower; holding things to
yourself can hurt a lot.
• Listening to our heart and letting the power of our love
overcome our fears.
There is no such thing as
being too late when we are trying to improve the quality of life. Our life is
our choice, how and where we choose to take it. When we keep letting ourselves
in these horrible situations then we lose a piece of ourselves. When we
approach life situations with this thought process and a firm inner strength,
we are only bound to make quality decisions in life; even while facing our
