Learn to live by Living to learn
“The longest battle in history is the battle you fight with yourself”. I honestly been thinking and thinking over what to write on. But, there’s nothing better to write on something that can help others change their life. I began writing to ensure the thoughts in my mind come out and not be suppressed down in the corner. Emotions and thoughts do come out in various forms, I began writing them down and remembering them instead of pushing them away. World has 7 billion people, 7 billion problems to solve, why not write down your thoughts somewhere that can help people who read it and understand it.
I remember this famous quote from the movie/book “The Peaceful Warrior” that life has three rules: Paradox, Humor and change.
“ Paradox: Life is a mystery; don’t waste your time trying to figure it out.
Humor: Keep a sense of humor, especially about yourself. It is a strength beyond all measure.
Change: Know that nothing ever stays the same.”
Those three rules have kept me going for a long time and are the rules that I live by. Believe me when I say this, life is useless if you don’t enjoy the present and live it. How to capture the essence of a good memory? “YOU MUST LIVE IT”. If you ever find yourself stuck in a situation and feel there’s no way out of it, keep calm and think of moments that kept you happy, look inside those feelings, I am sure you will find your way out of your problems.
Problems will always be there, they are a part of your life. They are a necessity at times, dealing with problems can help you learn more about life than happiness. It’s how you deal with your problems that makes you a better human being.
There’s a famous quote I usually relate to “If you are not a part of the solution, the n you are a part of the problem itself”, recognizing there is a problem is a step into the solution. Every problem can be resolved if you are honest about the cause of the problem.
Everyone has a battle to fight, to win or, lose is just a matter of personal perspective. Not every victory leads to happiness, not every loss leads to sorrow. If you fight a battle and come out to be a better person, I would say it’s worth fighting after-all.
