Do you have any problem?
A depressed, sad, angry.. person would say ‘yes’, while a nonchalant, happy.. person would say ‘no’.
But that’s where the plothole appears.. Everyone has problems.
We live in a world full of problems. Some that can be solved and others that are compromised with. No living being on this planet is devoid of problems. But, how do we keep calm and be happy even while getting suffocated or choked by a horde of various problems?
Life is all about problems. How you tackle them is what determines your fate. The mistakes or the coarse of action that you choose, determines your future; with respect to your past. Such is the unique design of life, where everything is connected.
Ever wondered, if you had a time machine and you could just go back to maybe avoid some particular problem or a mistake that you made in the past? If time machines actually existed and if people used it for the purpose I mentioned, then trust me it’d change the whole thing upside down. If the ‘past’ gets changed, so does the ‘present’ and then the ‘future’. You lose everything that you had in the ‘present’, along with the problems even the happy memories and the people you met.. will be gone. You will just have a new set of happy memories and people, along with a new set of problems.
Life is complicated but it is a pattern or a spectrum which can be understood. No single person is truly satisfied of life. Everyone has problems and happiness is just an illusion. But yet, most people are happy. So, it all comes down to our outlook towards life; our approach to the problems; our way of maintaining that illusion of happiness.
At times, people are facing the same problems, but yet some are happy and some are not. Optimism, self confidence and a positive outlook towards problems is the key to be happy. We human beings are social creatures and most of us fear solitude. Even introverts at some point or at every single point of their life wish that they have someone to talk to, to understand, to love. Most introverts that I personally know, have atleast one person, they are completely true to.
Aye, Life fucks us all; Not once but a series of random fucks. But it is up to us, to see it as just hindrances that we need to overcome to become something bigger.. or get overwhelmed by it, curl up in a shell and hope to die.
The future is uncertain, even in the bleakest and the darkest present that you may have.. you can never predict is the future is fucked up as well.And this uncertainty is the hope that push people forward.
But the thing is, we can actually be certain about our future..because with a positive outlook to the problems of the present, we learn to bring positivity in the future, whatever our past may be.
So, next time anyone asks you, “Do you have any problem?”
Tell them, “Yes, I have many. But I can handle them.”
