WHO ARE YOU

Depending on the tone you use, this question may sound rude or simply a way of asking if you understand yourself. In this case both ways go. I’m asking how well you know yourself. Knowing others is wisdom but knowing yourself is enlightenment. I’m also asking you who the hell you think you are to perpetuate evil and act like an angel who just landed from heaven.

I thought I was patient……. turns out my patience is a time bomb ready to go off to cause destruction. Yeah, my little sister won’t let me help with her homeworks anymore because she said I was impatient. My doctor told me I was a strong girl and it got into my head. My close friends think I’m strong too but honestly I am sure of counting my ABC than affirming that I am strong. I sometimes imagine weird but possible tragedies. I would sometimes imagine being left at the altar on my wedding day and how I would react. How I would react if a swarm of bees entered my dress in public. What I would do if I found boxes of money that are not mine. That’s how blessed we’re as humans to be able to imagine ourselves in hypothetical situations and contemplate on how we would react in such situations. But what happens when we are faced with the realities?

Life is full of ups and downs. Do you accept the sweet moments and reject the bitter ones? Sometimes we become so moody, releasing and spreading negative energy. We ask “why me?”- Who should it be? Accepting the setbacks and working on them is what makes life worth living. Think about this; “the desire for more positive experience is itself a negative experience and paradoxically the acceptance of one’s negative experience is itself a positive experience, and the denial of failure is failure”. ( Subtle Art of not Giving a f_ck, The Mark Manson)

A lot of people think the world owes them something and act as if they’re entitled to everything beautiful in life. Well, the world owes nobody nothing. So when you don’t study for an exam and you get a D, just sit your ass down and study next time. Don’t go chasing lecturers for favours.

Who the hell are you to keep a boy or girl for selfish reasons? You embezzle public, family or club funds, you maltreat other people’s children, you see your political party doing harm than good yet you praise them, you disrespect your parents, forgetting they brought you into this world. Who the hell do you think you are to make life uncomfortable for others? We all want a better world. So be the change you want to see. Treat people like the humans they are, with respect. Be happy and embrace life with positive energy. It’s okay for things to suck sometimes. You may end reading this with the question: “who_am I” or an answer: “I know who I am”.Which one will it be?
