Harsh Truth

Harsh Truth

             Out there live people who have arrogance absorbed in their hearts like water in the sponge. Some are superior because of how they are born and where they are born. I feel sorry for them when they expose their haughtiness to other people, because they forget that their existence doesn’t mean anything to this world, except the people they are loved by. They forget that if they did never born, even their parents life would have been without a defect. But they exist, that’s the reason their parent’s lives are highly motivated by them. But just think what if you never came to this world, your friends would have felt lonely? Your best friend would have died without making another best friend? Your husband or wife would have lived without marrying anyone? We all think that we are the center of the universe, but the harsh truth is we are just a part of it and trying to leave a spot in history just because we exist.

I have seen people ignoring others because they think peoples lives are affected by their presence, but ‘no’, until you become a big part of their life, ignoring them while they are trying to talk to you will not affect them. And even if they want you in their life doesn’t mean they can’t live without you, we all are merged to live without the things we want. For example, I wanted the powers like spiderman in childhood but I didn’t get it. Even I tried to put spiders on forearms so that they can bite me. But nothing happened. That was the time when we started to learn how to live in absence of things we love. But sometimes we think that our absence will make other people’s life dreadful. But the harsh truth is it makes our life less meaningful. You are here so that your environment gets affected by your presence, but if you think that it will get affected by your absence then you must read the first paragraph of this blog again.

I even feel sorry for the people who believe someone will live with them forever. They didn’t realize that we are born alone and will die alone, that is the way of God to tell us that we are alone in this world. But there are some things that stays with us forever. Maybe we never realize them. For example, my parents taught me the language I speak today, but I can’t recall how and when they taught me. Today I can speak anything I want to in my mother tongue and can tell the word they call to anything you point. But I can’t remember when I learned all these things. I can’t recollect when they taught me to say ‘I’, ‘Me’ or ‘My’ whenever I want to tell something related to my self. I can’t reminiscence when they taught me to speak small words like ‘this’ and ‘that’. And I can’t remember how they taught me to respond whenever someone speaks the word ‘Vikram’ in the room. But these things are with me, and will be with me forever. And not only the language, but how I speak, how I behave with younger and elder, how I respond to the teachers, friends and the unknown people, all these things are given to me by my parents. I know that the people I am surrounded with will change someday, and knowingly or unknowingly I will receive something from each of them. But the harsh truth is we don’t always realize it and don’t appreciate their presence in our life.
