Very nice article that’d get one thinking. Especially loved how you reframed everything into another perspective!
So many things are mentioned here on how so many things are changing and nobody is noticing it. But I’m just wondering now- is it really because we aren’t noticing it or did we actually noticed it and CHOSE to adapt to it and live with it because we can AND because we saw a certain benefits in it?
What benefits can be reaped off a modern society where so many issues are present? (such as the mentioned “ideal partner syndrome”)
Well, often when we see a bad side, we tend to amplify its effects. Psychologists call it the “impact bias”. Let’s look at the facts, we may have all these negatives happening around us but do we have positives as well?
Fortunately- Yes we do! Things like clean air, water, comfortable environment and maybe even more positive friends/ community! Internet is definitely a good benefit we got off the modern world!
Granted, not every single modern civilization has everything mentioned perfectly but we do get some good off them. We just tend to not see it sometimes because we get caught up by the negative and got blinded by it. Hence the term “always try to appreciate what you have”. When we do, that’s when we’d feel fortunate and cherish what we have and maybe even start sharing with others who lack of what we got. Awesome!
As we know by now, it’s a trade off. There’s always two sides to a coin, yin and yang, light and darkness.
But the best part about us humans is that we are real experts as survivors. We are built to adapt to our environment and surroundings- look at how there are so many ppl living in different types of climates and surviving! (North/ South Pole, Deserts, jungles, modern civilization etc)
Dreams are beautiful to have but indeed, in reality, it may “Burn” us if we can’t see our dreams fulfilled.
BUT, in my opinion, not all dreams are impossible to see come true. In fact, as long as you strive towards a dream, don’t give up on it, something will come off it. That’s where innovation and evolution of lifestyle comes in!
Do you think we’d have humans flying across planets or sailing across the seas if men didn’t dream? It all came from innovation and the daring mentality to dream and chase it!
A dream will not “Burn” you in reality until you choose to let it- Though most of us don’t realize this, we tend to blame the world and our surroundings for what we can’t accomplish. It’s just an excuse. Know why I said that? We have ppl working their asses off to get from the third world country into the first world because it’s the dream for them. A new world where their sufferings from their old world will end. Some don’t make it but guess what? Some did and do.
Think you have it hard? Think again. Don’t blame the world for your laziness or lack of motivation to pursue something that matters to you. Don’t give up on your dreams and give yourself the excuse that it’s because of him, her or them. That’s the easy way out and that’s why many ppl live dissatisfied lives- they know they are better than that but they were just lazy and now, they’ve lost their chance to make their dreams a reality or maybe even a partial reality (eg if you work towards $1 million? You may not end up getting it but you might still get $500k for striving towards your goal!)
As what a good friend of mine said “Work on your dreams and don’t stop chasing it. If you wait too long and fail to see it accomplished? Thats when this dream of yours will turn into a nightmare”.
That is when dreams start to burn in reality. I’m sure you’ve seen people living their dreams. It’s a beautiful thing, don’t you agree? Some may say oh it’s unfair because they got a head start or whatever.
Bullshit. The successful people who’ve achieved their dreams and living it are some of the hardest working ppl I’ve seen. Ppl just see the results but not the journey or process in their pursuit of happiness.
It’s not a easy process to get what you want- let alone living the life that you want! Hence the term “nothing worth getting is ever easy”.
Awesomely said, don’t you think?
Not that I’m saying that you’re wrong about what you’ve shared in your article (in fact, I loved the facts that you’ve shared! It brings new perspectives into ppls lives and that’s just awesome!) I’m just trying to share another perspective which I feel, people can benefit from as well 😉
Anywho, seriously, nice article and thank you for writing it!
Young and frustrated
Distraught with fear of ‘The Future’
Wanted to go back in time and unravel the true covers of life
Desperate to yell to the ones who made childhood a living, walking lie.
For making believe that one day we grow up to have horse carriages along with a prince charming aboard on his white horse, dresses and ornaments of gold, castle of happiness.
A Question running through her mind : Why?
Why did they not tell that horse carriages wasn’t preferred anymore, now days mostly an Aston Martin, or a dress of gold would be too hot and itchy to wear, to even buy an ornament one would require their savings of all the years of their life and yet not fulfill their desire.
Why didn’t they tell that happiness, once in the real world, comes from money?
Why didn’t they tell that not everyone’s got a prince…
