Why are we not allowed to live the way we want to?Especially we would cause no harm by doing so?Why in this world we get told:" we live only once" and should thus live each moment fully,yet when we try to do so,the world goes against us due to its stupid norms which has helped noone and to me seem utterly useless.I for one,refuse to follow.Call me a rebel ,call me crazy but I refuse to follow anything if it goes against what my heart says and cannot even be reasoned out for me. I believe in following my duty and giving the world my best but to do so I require freedom....freedom to make mistakes.Freedom live life my way and still be respected ,at least by people important to me.And this freedom as of now IIdo not have and can only crave for.

Listen to your heart

"The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart."Helen Keller

So true.And emotions cannot be thought,they can only be felt.They have no logic,only instinct.Think about,fear,love,peace, many times it happens that we feel all this but can't undestand why so.So many times we just have a good or bad feeling about something but can't explain it.So many times our heart beats in a way which we understand but only silently.Not houghts are required to truly feel or understad the language of heart.Its all so well defined in Paulo Coelho's Alchemist.But i won't quote.Those qoutes need to be imbibed in the flow of the book,not just read.Even 11minutes defines certain aspects of life so well.That's how it is with certain novels.Some aspects are there to be imbibed and the rest is only there to provide the background for what the author is trying convey,or rather our interpretation of what the author says.Like in these 2 novels,the story is like a background and the hidden lessons are the theme,at least for me.

Two sides of life

To truly care means never to expect anything in return and never ro regret it.
But care also requires thought.It should be given to those who deserve it,need it and appreciate it.To show appreciation is not necessary.But it's a wastage of emotions,of energy, of time to care for people who don't value it simply 'cause they don't need it or acknowledge it. That's a mistake we may make but it doesn't make us bad,just makes u sad!Makes situations in life seem hopeless.Makes life a nightmare,from which we wish to wake up.

The other case is to truly care or love and be cherished even without expecting it.That's lucky and that's what makes life so beautiful.And makes those other sad moments worth it.Makes everything in life seem perfectly wonderful.Makes life seem so dreamlike ,that we feel afraid to be woken from it.
Sometimes it feels wonderful to be complicatedly simple rather than simply complex.
Just like this sentence!

Remember"It's my life"

This is one statement we so often forget.The focus our our lives has to ourselves.This is not a selfish attitude but an attitude required to truly and fully live life.The best way we can go about making our lives simple,uncomplicated and most importantly ,happy, is by being independent.Why "most importantly" happy?Because we need internal well being for any kind of extrenal goal.Even if success means making a difference to the world,for that we first need to make a differnce in our souls.We need feel good ourselves to make others around us feel better.

For all this ,we need to be independent and responsible for our own selves...our feelings and our actions.To depend on others,not matter how important to us, for happiness for instance, hampers not only the relation but also our own emotional well being.Yes external factors do influence us,and yes, people close to us do affect our emotions.But to be affected and to depend on are differemt issues.Its ok to be sad due to external factors just goes to show we care.But there's a problem if we "only" find happiness externally.If, in spite of all that's happening in our lives externally,we can take time out to find solace within ,or to find joy in some simple activity when totally on our own,we are in control.True happiness comes from least the form that is permanent.

External situations may make us feel great and that's good.We should be grateful to life when that happens,but at the same time not start waiting for those situations to be repeated to feel happy. In other words,don't expect much from the world but be happy when it gives a lot...still knowing that you will at least survive if you are deprived.Knowing that you have that much courage.

Painful satisfaction

One of the saddest quotes i have ever come across.....

"Life is a burden to be borne as long as one must,but cast away at the earliest oppurtunity"

What's sad is that at times of misery,it's so easy to believe this and get a kind of comfort in it for all its negativity.

Why am i writing it if its so sad?Because at times we all feel low and sadness has a way or exaggerating itself.This quote should read when you make you realise when you are sad that its an exaggeration to feel it too deeply.Ultimately life is how we take it....a burden to be cast away or a gift that has been lent to us....depending on our mood.
