We are dictated by our social norms, attitude, skills and by our parents (Sometimes or maybe all the time for some).
We’ve been through a lot and every day is another day to fight. We’re drowned and blinded by our perfection; to strive hard and be better. But when is the perfect time to stop? When will you be perfectly enough?
We were taught by our parents to dream big and reach for the sky. We follow the rules as they set the example of how we become the person they want us to be. I realize how hard for the others to make their own decisions, especially when they are bounded by their parent’s dreams. They want you to become someone who you’re not.
We cannot blame them for what they want, but they forget that we have our own life.
We live by expectations and suffer from odd frustrations, we live by what we know is right and then they come along to the rescue! Of course, we came from different culture and tradition and I cannot generalize that we all have the same parent who is strict, fickle minded and abusive or a parent who is caring, lovable and affectionate. Either way, we simply need to stick with the rules, they will always be our parents and they are the ones who are very well-known for criticizing our mistakes.
We became the standard of their perfection.
I grew up being independent on what I want in my life (from my Graduating high school and up to now). My parents usually advise me on what should I do about the path I’m taking but they never dictate nor force me to become the man whom they want me to be. But one thing I wish for them to notice my goodness because sometimes all they can see is my imperfections. You want to be perfectly enough but you’re not.
We set our standards high, So they expect high.
Just like a bread, we are crumpled, crushed and punched before we became a perfectly kneaded dough. This process takes time and effort, no one bakes with a single ingredient, a dough does not bake on its own and a perfectly baked bread requires a certain amount of sweat, tears, and blood to shed until it is ready to be served.
Don’t let them consume you because you’re perfectly enough.
Rise up and stand, seize the day and be proud.We are not written in books but we can be the writer of our own story.
It’s not bad to dream high, we are the makers of our own story. This is no fair tale but our stories are too damn good be one.
Without change there is no innovation, creativity, or incentive for improvement. Those who initiate change will have a better opportunity to manage the change that is inevitable.
Are you sick about today’s generation?
Face it, fellas! The 21st century is not our temple anymore.This period is the hell hole to incinerate and roast others for their self-proclaimed fame.
There is always a room for everything and the mainstream platform evolves every day that becomes bigger and wider the cyberspace. It is our platform of information and now it became the spawning ground of malicious, racial, sarcastic and egotistic acts. As what the new age quotation says:
We are what we post.
Blatant mouth is not an excuse for irresponsible posting; hating of other person’s post is also illogical (unless it is a negative thought that might break you). All we need to do is think before we post. We have the capacity to build and destroy bonds with other people, we have the power to influence a decision, composure, and growth.
We need balance and peace, everyone! Don’t let your hate become the source of pain in this agonizing world we’re living.
Freedom of speech isn’t prohibited but a sharp tongue without wisdom is relative to ignorance.
C’mon! We’re not kids anymore! We have the brain to critically think about our actions. As to what I’ve observed to this generation, (as if I’m too old to comment and was born in the 80s), we depend on what we always see and what we know is accessible our own black mirrors. We created technology; now, technology breaks through to control us.
There’s more to life, don’t let yourself go old staring in your black mirror
