So true.And emotions cannot be thought,they can only be felt.They have no logic,only instinct.Think about it...joy,fear,love,peace,excitement.....how 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.
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.
Just like this sentence!
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 ...it 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 within....at 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.

"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 happy...to 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.
