Eerily, most of the things that happen in our lives is a consequence of somebody else’s decision.
Life is so simple that there’s no room for overthinking at all. Life will take you to where it has to take you anyway. Wait, if you think of this as a case of divine intervention, let me tell you, it isn’t. Not even close.
For, life consists of all the people, relationships, emotions, practicalities that we are made up of.
I’ll give you a very simple example, so many times in the day we find people(many times we ourselves) complaining about work, boredom, location,etc. And at some or the other point of time we all think that what’s happening to our friends/colleagues/relatives is better than our situation.
“Grass is greener on the other side” – right?
But instead if we take a minute and think about the present and do things that we are capable of, life will just be so simple – Because we really don’t know if the grass is actually greener. And more importantly, there will always be people, situations, emotions taking the decisions on our behalf.
Say, I am in college and currently residing in someplace in Sri Lanka, and I keep thinking that I wish I could be in Canada. That could be a possibility only if I studied and applied for some college/work in Canada and I get selected there eventually. The entire process as you can see involves a lot of people and situations that will be taking the decision on my behalf. From approving the application to my selection, the consequence is always ‘other’ people’s decision.
Even the initiation of the idea is most of the time influenced by someone else’s from some other part of the world.
So it’s all very logical.
Staying simple, staying true to our capabilities and zero overthinking is what will take us to the right & “greener” places in life because complaining only makes “green” equatable to fantasy, unrealistic hopes and unhappiness.
What do you think?
Shoot your questions in the comment section because I really want to understand if my realisation is a concrete one!
